Purpose

The purpose of this page is to demonstrate that kfreebsd-amd64 meets the [http://release.debian.org/lenny_arch_policy.html architecture recertification criteria for lenny].

If some of these requirements are irrelevant or implausible for the port, please add a waiver request indicating why and how this isn't a problem for the arch in bold.

Availability

The architecture is publicly available without NDAs via:

1. [http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_9331,00.html AMD]

2. [http://www.intel.com/technology/architecture-silicon/intel64/index.htm Intel]

Developer machines

The following machines are available to developers:

  1. asdfasdf.debian.net - maintained by Aurelien Jarno and Gürkan Sengün, connectivity by ETH Zürich, Department of Physics.

Port maintainers

The Debian port is maintained by the following developers, who actively work on architecture specific issues:

  1. Aurelien Jarno
  2. Petr Salinger
  3. Guillem Jover
  4. Robert Millan
  5. Cyril Brulebois

Users

The port is being actively used at the following sites:

  • kernel: yes, supported by FreeBSD.
  • boot loader:
    • FreeBSD loader: yes, supported by FreeBSD.
