HEADS UP: 2.4 does not support i386 or NanoBSD

(1/2) > >>

jimp:
In case you haven't been watching other sources of information about pfSense 2.4, a couple key points need stated:

* NanoBSD is no longer supported. There will be no install images for NanoBSD. There is a method to convert NanoBSD to a full install, but it requires some manual steps. See https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Upgrading_64-bit_NanoBSD_2.3_to_2.4

* i386 is no longer supported, so 32-bit x86 hardware can not run pfSense 2.4. 64-bit hardware is required. This decision was made so we could focus on other platforms such as the SG-1000 which uses ARM.

Any news about this ? thanks

jimp:
None yet

So would you say D2700 falls into the supported or unsupported category.

That cpu seems to be called 64 bit but maybe has some issues with 64 bit OSs?

I don't have one physically handy to test.  I do have 1 running on the other side of the pacific, so thought I'd ask.

jimp:
It might depend on the mainboard. Intel says it has the 64-bit instruction set, so I'd expect it to work so long as the mainboard isn't crap.
