Re: [RFC] unified i386/x86_64 install media.



I think it's just an i386 kernel, since they do offer an x86_64 (which they call amd64) version that has all 64-bit. "generic" just refers to being the baseline kernel for the distribution. Both amd64 and i386 have generic kernels and packages that add onto it in Ubuntu.

On a not entirely unrelated topic, I noticed the other day that Ubuntu
ships "generic" kernels which work on i386 and x86-64 (or that's what
it appeared to do for me).  Anyone know how that works?
