1. The existing CMUCL *32-bit* Linux binaries work just fine
on 64-bit Linux kernels, at least, with RedHat 2.4.21-20.EL
and kernels built from 2.6.20. I use them at work all the time.
I'm not sure about Ubuntu, but assuming Ubuntu didn't do anything
to break execution of 32-bit Linux binaries on 64-bit kernels,
it should work there, too.
2. There *is* some work in progress to get a native AMD64 version
working, but it's been somewhat backburnered due to lack of time.
You might ask on the "cmucl-devel" list for more info.
