Bug ID: 210360
Summary: Lack of correlation between handbook and release on
system requirements. [Section 2.2]
Severity: Affects Many People
Assignee: [hidden email] Reporter: [hidden email]
[minor] Section 2.2 in the handbook is slightly misleading in the way it lists
the architecture requirements for system processor, specifically in regards to
Intel processors not listed under amd64. Release page:
https://www.freebsd.org/where.html has a much more concise and clear
explanation but they don't link to one another and can cause confusion because
of differences in wording.
I reworked the beginning of section 2.2 in order to clarify Intel's support of
the amd64 architecture. Also added a link to the FreeBSD download page, and
fixed two minor spelling mistakes later in the chapter.
