Snow Leopard 10a411 on MBP Santa Rosa Core 2 Duo- no 64-bit kernel- why?

in macOS edited January 2014
Can someone help me out here- I look in my system preferences and it is telling me that I am not running a 64-bit kernel on my MBP. I have a core 32 duo and the latest snow leopard beta.



thank you.

    I'd say that it is probably still work in development; I know that not all the graphics drivers are 64bit for example; I'm sure they're working on it but it is a matter of getting them stable enough for developers to test in a useful way.

    I think the release notes, which you'll find in the Mac Developer Programme site, tell you how to select which kernel to use.

    OOOOOHHHHHHHH..... ok thanks Amorya.



    Oh wait- crap! You called me out! I am not a developer!



    So can anyone here explain to me how to select the kernel without the passive-aggressive overtones?

    I won't be passive aggressive. The magic keys are all over the damn net and as the developer above said, it reflects the type of kernel bits.

    yeah I just held 6 and 4 down as it booted with a MBP 2.2 santa rosa- is anyone here able to get 64-bit on their mbp with my same configuration?

    Same problem exists with MacBook w/ Intel X3100 under 10A421a.



    I just hope that its taking Apple a while because the code is a pigs breakfast rather than Apple deliberately killing off 64bit bit support for non-Nvidia and non-ATI products

    OK- so snow leopard is being officially released on Friday- any new information on this front? Has the lsit of 64-bit kernel running computers increased? Will MBP3,1 be able to handle it?
