    linux 64 bit apps & multi-threading


    i'm curious to find out if when you're running an x86_64 distro with the 64 bit apps, do any of them use multi-threading or were they simply compiled with the 64 bit flags?

    thanks

    As far as I know most 64-bit Linux applications use an identical code-base that's just be recompiled for X86_64. As far as multi-threading, I think that depends on the application.

    Probably on the project website. Not all kinds of programs benefit from multi-threading, so as far as I can guess it's the prerogative of the development team.
