It's time public testing of the amd64 port begins.
The code is available in my git repo at
git://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~smtms/dragonfly.git in branches "amd64" and
The "amd64+hacks" branch contains what "amd64" contains + some band aid
to keep the system working even when a proper fix to a known problem is

You can now begin to find and report (and fix) bugs.
Does it work in an emulator and if so, which ones are known to work? Do
you plan to offer a CD image we can install from (not necessarily using
the installer, the old cpdup method is fine at this stage)?
It should work in any emulator that supports DragonFly. It sure works on
I do not plan to offer a CD image. I'm unable to imagine the use case.
The amd64 port is a work in progress, so one should be able to build and
re-build from source, and the lack of CD image shouldn't be a problem.
