Template:Build Documentation 64bit

Advanced users can create 64bit instead of 32bit builds.

If you are interested, click on Expand on the right.

By default, Linux 32 bit is used. [1] 64bit builds are less tested due to lack of developer manpower. Should work well in principle. Whonix 14 will be 64 bit by default. Forum discussion: State of offical 64 bit builds

Note, you cannot build 64 bit if you are running a 32 bit kernel. [2] In that case, try installing the packages linux-image-amd64 and linux-headers-amd64. Then boot that amd64 kernel by choosing it in your boot menu. (This does not require re-installation of the whole system. Just make sure you boot with an amd64 kernel.)

Linux 64 bit. To build Whonix 64 bit, add the following build parameter. [3] [4]

--arch amd64

kFreeBSD. entirely untested and most likely needs work. See footnotes. [5]

  1. And linux-image-686-pae linux-headers-686-pae linux-image-486 linux-headers-486 kernel is installed. The 486 kernel only gets installed for compatibility reasons. If you have modern hardware, you can omit linux-image-486 linux-headers-486. Or if you have ancient hardware, you could omit linux-image-686-pae linux-headers-686-pae.

  3. Only installs linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-amd64 kernel.
  4. For --arch amd64, the following is implicitly added unless you manually set these.
    --kernel linux-image-amd64 --headers linux-headers-amd64
  5. Lacks --kernel and --headers. kFreeBSD 64 bit.
    --arch kfreebsd-i386

    kFreeBSD 32 bit.
