  1         Linux kernel release 2.4.xx for the IA-64 Platform
  2 
  3    These are the release notes for Linux version 2.4 for IA-64
  4    platform.  This document provides information specific to IA-64
  5    ONLY, to get additional information about the Linux kernel also
  6    read the original Linux README provided with the kernel.
  7 
  8 INSTALLING the kernel:
  9 
 10  - IA-64 kernel installation is the same as the other platforms, see
 11    original README for details.
 12 
 13 
 14 SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
 15 
 16    Compiling and running this kernel requires an IA-64 compliant GCC
 17    compiler.  And various software packages also compiled with an
 18    IA-64 compliant GCC compiler.
 19 
 20 
 21 CONFIGURING the kernel:
 22 
 23    Configuration is the same, see original README for details.
 24 
 25 
 26 COMPILING the kernel:
 27 
 28  - Compiling this kernel doesn't differ from other platform so read
 29    the original README for details BUT make sure you have an IA-64
 30    compliant GCC compiler.
 31 
 32 IA-64 SPECIFICS
 33 
 34  - General issues:
 35 
 36     o Hardly any performance tuning has been done. Obvious targets
 37       include the library routines (IP checksum, etc.). Less
 38       obvious targets include making sure we don't flush the TLB
 39       needlessly, etc.
 40 
 41     o SMP locks cleanup/optimization
 42 
 43     o IA32 support.  Currently experimental.  It mostly works.
