Interesting, I wouldn't have thought using a 64bit kernel (rather than 32bit) would make a difference.

Why does it make a difference? :P

Presuming a 64bit kernel can work with a 32bit userland, which I assume it can because it's what maxx has been doing, what would the problem be?

Or does it only semi-work?

(I haven't fully researched the whole 32/64 thing)

Perhaps dpkg or apt is checking which architecture he's using and choosing the packages to go with?

Ah, that's a good point :P

Although, wouldn't have thought that would prevent software from being installed really.

Under normal circumstances it wouldn't

But funky things are sure to happen when you've got a 32-big userland and decide to update a few packages with their 64-bit counterparts.
