I've got a 64-bit native AMD system running CRUX 2.2, and it works beautifully.  (I even put the new XGL/Compiz stuff on it.)A couple of notes:1. I took the native x86-64 ISO from 2.1 and did a full upgrade, after making sure that /usr/lib was a symlink to /usr/lib64.2. You may want to use Han's GCC 4.1.0 port, because all the Mozilla programs have some issues with 4.0.3.  The alternative is to use 4.0.3 and patch the mozconfig file with "ac_cv_visibility_pragma=no" anywhere in the file.3. nVidia drivers are a pain.  You'll see.4. When compiling glibc, make sure to disable multilib.  I could never get this to work.5. It may have been just me, but I noticed significant performance benefits when using 64-bit over 32.I'll be glad to help with any patches I may have collected for specific ports.Will
