Date: Mon, 24 Apr 2006 04:33:21 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Owl ported to x86-64 Hi, That's right - we've ported Owl to the x86-64 architecture (also known as AMD64 and Intel EM64T). The latest Owl-current binary packages for x86-64 have been made available under /pub/Owl/current/x86_64 on the FTP mirrors: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml Currently, these packages have to be installed off a system that is already running an x86-64 build of the Linux kernel. This installer system's userland may be 32-bit, though, as long as the kernel is built for x86-64 with CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION enabled. We're planning to create and make available a bootable CD image for x86-64 a bit later. I'd like to thank Dmitry V. Levin who did the port and the bulk of the associated testing. I would also like to thank ALT Linux for letting Dmitry use their servers, and DataForce ISP for providing our current x86-64 build server. -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
