64 Bit Linux Distributions

Debian/GNU Linux

Setting up the 64-bit system is a little tricky, checkout the Debian-AMD64-HOWTO. And the Debian amd64 mailing list.


L has announced their upcoming Linux-based 64-bit Operating System codenamed L OS, with emphasis on performance, security, usability, and readiness for new hardware technologies.


RockLinux for AMD64.


For Novell/SuSE AMD64 there is a suse-amd64 mailing list.


Gentoo offers an AMD64 port. Gentoo's technotes on the AMD64 distribution.


Mandriva (Mandrake) offers an AMD64 port.

Fedora / RedHat

Fedora offers an AMD64 port. For RedHat you have to buy the RedHat Enterprise Linux AMD64 edition.

This HOWTO explains how to upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit Fedora Linux without a system reinstall: "One great thing about Linux is that you can transplant a hard disk from a machine that runs a 32-bit AMD XP processor into a new 64-bit Intel Core 2 machine, and the Linux installation will continue to work..."

Knoppix 64

Knoppix 64 is a version of the Knoppix Linux distribution with 64-bit versions of the kernel, libc, GCC/g++ 3.4, and GDB for 64-bit AMD processors.


See the FreeBSD/amd64 5.2-CURRENT Installation Instructions.


Slamd64 is an unofficial port of Slackware Linux to the x86_64 architecture; despite the name containing AMD64, Slamd64 should work both on K8 (AMD64) and EM64T (some Intel) processors.

Bluewhite64 Linux

Bluewhite64 Linux is an unofficial port of Slackware Linux to the AMD64 architecture. This means that it runs on AMD64 based servers and computers. The goal of this port is to mimic the user experience of the Intel x86 distribution at it's best. The distribution is aimed at pure 64-bit AMD64 Athlon, Opteron, Sempron, Turion, and Intel EM64T processors in desktops and servers.

Other UniXes


For 64bit SPARC laptops with Solaris OS see Tadpole and SUN.



For NVIDIA see the Minion project for current drivers, working with Linux Kernel 2.6 (x86, x86-64).


memtest86+ is memory testing tool, which works with AMD64.


The BlackDown Project provides a Java 1.4.2 port for AMD64 CPUs.

Linux Drivers

Linuxant has released DriverLoader 2.20 and this new version adds support for the x86_64 architecture. A x86_64 Microsoft-Windows driver is required for x86_64 support. Not all chipsets have a x86_64 Windows XP drivers and only the Broadcom BCMWL564 WLAN chipset is officially supported under x86_64 for now.

General Resources

  • The x86-64 Project is dedicated to porting Open Source software to the AMD64 architecture, including: GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD to the AMD64 architecture.
  • LinuxR3000 - mailing list for owners of Compaq R3000 laptops running Linux
