Hi All...

I have been trying to run a 64bit Debian prebuilt template VPS with no luck. When I try to start the VPS it says that it can't start and someting to the effect "probably wrong template version."

So I built a kernel for my Debian Etch host node with flat memory but that didn't help. I also looked for a 64bit prebuilt kernel for 686 but didn't see one. The AMD64 prebuilt kernel packages won't install (no suprise).

I see there is an AMD64 port of Etch that is supposed to work on Intel 64bit chips and I see there are pre-built kernels for Debian Etch AMD64.

Is this what I need to accomplish this? If not, how do I get a 64bit host node? Will there be a performance or capability gain to make it worth doing?

Thanks!

Well I installed the Etch AMD64 version from a daily netinst ROM and also a pre-built AMD64 OpenVZ kernel. A few things I noticed:

I can now create and run VPSes created from an AMD64 bit template.

The VZCpucheck application showed a decrease in "CPU power" from then I was running the ordinary Etch but with the kernel built for a flat memory space.

The OpenVZ tools were installed from systs.org and may be 32 bit.

Does anyonw know if the result from vzcpucheck is menaingful in comparrison to the same hardware with a 32bit etch?

Also, are there any benifits to running with a 64bit OS?

Thanks...
