I'm upgrading a 7.3 -STABLE installation to 8.x, then 9- Stable over the
next few days. The hardware is a Dell 2950 that is capable of running
64 bit FreeBSD. The original installation was i386 32 bit and that is
what it is running now.
Will the buildworld ---> buildkernel KERNCONF=FOO64 allow a 32 bit
installation to build a 64 bit kernel? I'd like to upgrade this machine
to 64 bit AMD and I'd prefer not to do it from a DVD if I can do it from
source. Has anyone tried this and succeeded (or failed spectacularly)
on a remote install/upgrade?
