Confirm processor compatibility

The ia64 architecture is intended for use on Intel Itanium processors only.
If you have a 64-bit Intel Pentium/Core/Xeon processor, you need to use the amd64 architecture.


Hardware compatibility

Processor compatibility

The lp64d stages can be used on all 64-bit RISC-V processors supporting the double-precision floating point instruction set. The lp64 stages can be used on all 64-bit RISC-V processors; they require no hardware support for floating point arithmetics.

For an overview of the different instruction sets, see, e.g., the RISC-V wikipedia page.

Additional Gentoo-specific information can be found on the web page of the Gentoo RISC-V project.
