Anyone in the know,

I am using a 16KB page size for my Lion systems.

Under the help section of make menuconfig is says:

4KB   best for ia32

8KB   best for ia64

16KB  best for ia64

64KB  Not for Itanium


I just want to know what is the gain or loss if I used 8KB instead of 16KB
page size.

Also why is the 64KB page size bad for Itanium?

Thanks.
