At first didn't work - I added the flag and it did work - but I am only 95% sure that was 
the only thing changed. My hunch is someone needs to look into what that flag is about that 
understands kernelflags better than I do. I don't think Digium would have told him to add it 
without a good reason. I've copied others asking about the same issue I found on Google - I 
really can't test right now as this system is already live - perhaps one of the others can? 
I was hoping someone would have a contact inside Digium.

grep for amd64 in the changelogs has nothing. The date of that post was Sep of 2005 - not so 
long ago and the amd64 issue is new with etch...

It is working with the change

When everything is coming my way, I'm probably in the wrong lane.
