Wasabi Systems is happy to announce that Frank van der Linden has
ported NetBSD to the x86-64 (tm) architecture. The x86-64 is AMD's
upcoming 64bit line of CPUs. For now, it is only known to work on the
Virtutech simulator, since no x86-64 hardware is available yet. In
this environment, it runs multi-user. The port has been committed to
the NetBSD CVS repository.
NetBSD/x86_64 is NetBSD's 44th architecture.
We thank AMD for their generous assistance.
