64 Bit SME Status?

64 Bit SME Status?
« on: August 28, 2007, 01:59:48 AM »
I'm curious what the status is on any 64 bit version of SME?  Is it in development or is it dead?

There never was a 64 bit SME

Only discussion on the need for one,
32 bit SME works fine on 64 bit machines

Ok........ and I'm sure 16 bit ran well on 32 bit but eventually things need to keep pace don't they?  So no long range plans for a 64 bit version?  I would think that will cause the program to slowly fade away, particularly if Ubuntu ever gets their easybusinessserver (or similar product) off the ground. 

BTW, the 32 bit version does not load on the the 64 bit AMD machines, at least not for me.  Sounds like it runs ok with the 64 bit Intel processor.

A bug? Report to the bug tracker  8)

Does any body have the same problem? ie not able to install on AMD64? Or other successfully installed on AMD64?

Hi,

Just to share! we have installed this AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ and we haven't encountered any problem. What SME version did you use?

Regads,

64 bit wouldn't go with 7.0 or 7.1, don't remember, so I pulled an older PIII and it ran fine.  While searching I did come across others that were not able to install on the 64bit AMD.  Wish I could give you more info but moved on.  You know what it's like when a server goes down and you have to get one back up.

It runs just fine on 64 bit AMD as well. As with 32 bit processors, SME is compatible with the processors, but not with all motherboards.

I remember this conversation came up many, many moons ago and the plain and simple answer in the short term was (from memory) if you want to fund it or donate hardware you are most welcome too.
