<sect1> hardware_64bit: Can I run isdn4linux on 64bit hardware with Linux?
<label id="hardware_64bit">
In principle yes, however your hardware choice is currently limited to
active cards and external devices. Most desired are external devices using
standard interfaces (network, USB) which do not require isdn4linux at all.
The drivers for passive cards are currently not working under 64bit.
Obviously you can also not make use of binary drivers, unless you find a
binary compiled for 64bit.
