In 2012 when the first stage3 for a x32 environment came out I had already tried to set up an x32-based system. However, due to lots of problems I gave up quite quickly.

Some days ago I have started a new try based on the stage3 as of Oct.31, 2013.

Things are running much better now, but I have still several problems.

I remember that back in 2012 I had found a quite good tutorial/howto for x32 which provided a lot of help. Unfortunately I had not bookmarked it and I not able to find it again. So if anybody could provide me with a link for such a tutorial/howto I would be quite glad.

Moreover, I assume that most of the problems I encounter now, could be the result of some wrong settings. I have however no clue which settings might be wrong.

I anybody here should have successfully set up an running x32-system I would be glad if she/he could post the output of emerge --info.

Many thanks in advance
CHL

Well if you stick to that it helped me a lot in the past.

and other things can be asked or found on google (which is faster usually).

I don't think there's anything there about x32 (yet).

I have not set up an x32 system yet, but was thinking about it. I haven't seen much discussion about it since last summer. There seem to be x32 profiles now, though, and the x32 stage-3 archives appear to be fresh:

Here's the mailing list announcement of the original RC last year):

There is a tracker bug collecting all the x32-related bugs. That might give you some idea of where it stands and how to overcome certain issues:

There's also this:
