Question - processor specific issue.

Will pfsense 2.4 64bit run on a D2700 board?  Its supposed to be 64 bit capable but I've read about some issues.

Currently there is a 32 bit version of pfsense running on a pfsense install that is far far away.

I'd test it myself but I can't physically touch that system.  So, anyone know?

Will there be an i386 build when 2.4 is released?
No, 32-bit has been taken out of the build scripts for 2.4.
2.3.* is the last release stream for 32-bit. There is yet to be an official announcement about the EOL support for that - I am hoping that ordinary code/fixes will continue to be back-ported and that a formal release build will be done "every now and then" of the RELENG_2_3 branch up to the EOL for FreeBSD 10.3 in 2018.

That's interesting, because the SG-1000 is based on the ARM Cortex-A8 which is is a 32-bit processor and only runs 2.4.

The intended detailed meaning is that 32-bit i386 has been removed (and all nanoBSD has been removed).
Technically speaking, yes there is still 32-bit in 2.4 because a 32-bit ARM build has been added.
As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

I actually figured that this particular device would only run on the 2.3 release and not be upgradable to 2.4 once it came out..

Thus a good reason for Netgate to continue 2.3 support well into the future.  Phil- you absolutely sure that its sold with 2.4?

Yep, the ARM build is only in 2.4

I see that people are reporting 2.4-BETA issues on SG-1000 devices here, so I guess the hardware was ready back in Nov/Dec 2016 and they decided to ship it with 2.4-BETA

Yup.  I've got it running at home.  It's on 2.4 beta.  There are daily releases (which I only load once a week to retain my sanity).  It's a cute little box, smaller than my Raspberry Pi.  And it works well enough for home.  Here's a shot of the console showing the output of sysctl, uname, /etc/version and /etc/platform.  32 bit ARM (Cortex-A8) and pfSense 2.4

Just watching the November 2016 Hangout where Jimp explains this.  If you have Gold Membership I recommend watching this video.  Otherwise I can try to summarize what was said..
