I have installed a RHEL5.4 on p570, and the installed Lx86, but seems it is a 32bit environment.
And I saw "PowerVM™ Lx86 supports the installation and running of most 32-bit x86 Linux® applications on any System p™ model with POWER5™, or POWER6™ technology, or IBM BladeCenter® JS20, JS21, or JS22 servers.", does this mean Lx86 not support 64-bit applications now?
If yes, how to setup an 64bit Lx86 environment?
I have an application which has lots of 64-bit packages want to be installed on Lx86.
BTW. how to install a 64bit RHEL5.4? there is only on RHEL5.4 iso for ppc, and it is installed to be a 32bit OS by default. I found there are 64bit rpm packages, but there is no option to choose a 64bit OS during the installation.
Notice: We have upgraded developerWorks Community to the latest version of IBM Connections. For more information, read our upgrade FAQ.

Re: doesn't Lx86 support 64bit applications?2011-01-24T13:43:32ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Lx86 currently only supports 32-bit x86 applications.
RedHat only provides a 64 bit install for Power, but some of the tools are still 32-bit. Running uname -a should include the text 'ppc64' which would indicate a 64 bit kernel.
