Yes, x86_64 version would be OK, I guess. As fas as jitter is concerned, I can find out from our Java development team if they happily like to add a jit on the architecture. Is there any documentation about the source code and build avalable?
Thank you for your prompt response.

I am looking for a beta/production JVM that can run on this hardware in 64-bit mode. Does Kaffe have a version (beta/devel/anything) available for me to test?
Kaffe has been ported to x86_64 (or amd64, if you want to call it that
way, there seems to be some confusion about the 'right' handle for the
arhitecture) by Gwenole Beauchesne from MandrakeSoft.
It should run happily in interpreter mode. It doesn't have a jit yet on
that architecture. It would be great, if someone could write take up the
task of writing a jitter for it/making kaffe's jitters work. I don't
know how much work ith would be, as I'm not really familiar with the
intel/amd 64 bit architectures.
As we don't distribute binaries, the best way to evaluate kaffe on your
platform is to download kaffe 1.1.3 (the latest & greatest development
release) sources , and build it on your platform. It would be very
nice if you could send me build logs & make check results, if you do
that, so that I can try fixing compiler warnings ;)
All bug reports are welcome, patches even more so, they should all go to
this mailing list.
