Hello,
I'm wondering if chrooting to a 64 bit system from a 32bit is possible and reliable.

I'm trying to finalize a fresh x86_64 gentoo install into a new faster hdd. (read this thread about the problems

I've already got an working x86 gentoo in an old hdd in the same box.

Can I use this 32bit old gentoo system to chroot in the new 64bit gentoo till I get it fixed?
Thanks,
Daniel

If you started a 64-bits kernel, you can chroot it by entering
Code:
linux64 chroot ...
, but if it was a 32 bit only kernel, this will be impossible.

painteru,

No. The 32 bit kernel does not know how to support 64 bit code.
