Odd query here, but i was wondering if there was a way to set up BT to run in 64bit? I get the incredible sense that the answer is yes, with a recompiled kernel, and then i'd have to recompile all the software on it as well.... is it possible with some "compatibility switch" to still 32bit apps, or am i smoking crack?
Reason being is that i run VMs on BT in vbox, and i have 4gb of memory in my laptop, which would be rather useful for running server test VMs.
In terms of VMs i run virtual box to run winXP and other testing OS's on BT4 - lab testing machines pretty much for all sorts of stuff (i'm a sys engineer, occasionally helps to test in a semi-sterile environment on the go). MS OS' are memory hogs, so having 4GB installed and only being able to address 3 of them is a bit of a crutch.
Never tried this with backtrack mind. Did this couple of times in the past with ubuntu distros....
Is there a guide to a pure x64 install? I would like to use BT4 P.R.
And before someone starts yelling at me to do some searches, I looked for this post for almost a half hour before I found it. I searched for 64 (space) bit, nothing, then x64, nothing, just 64, and still nothing.
P.S. Sorry about the double post hit enter by mistake and my post when up for review so I couldn't edit it until that was done.
