64bit-migration

32 to 64 migration notes:

https://www.hattne.se/articles/migration.html

my notes:

  • make sure system is completely up to date and has been depcleaned, preserved-rebuilt and revdep-rebuild - to clean up old 32bit libraries else lots of work later
  • make sure you have an *identically* up to date 64bit machine to copy libraries from
  • most 32bit doesnt get built on stable unless u do this:
# cat /etc/portage/profile/use.mask
-abi_x86_32
  • for finding orphan files after migration in /lib32, /usr/lib32, /usr/lib64
cd /lib32 ; find  -xdev -type f -exec qfile -o {} + |less
