VIA Nano U2250 (samsung NC20)

Some years ago i never succeeded in a succesfull installation of 64-bit linux on this system (Samsung NC20). Because the 32-bit worked as a charm and the system only has 1GB RAM, i never tried again installing a 64-bit version of linux.  VIA Nano U2250 is one of the first 64-bit proccessors and what i read in all the fora it still has some problems.

Now Arch is discontinuing support for 32-bit (in november 2017) and i really got attached to archbang (thank you mr Green :-) i want to install the 64-bit. Does anyone her has any experience with that?
Most problems i encountered where graphical and it was way to complicated for me to solve. But before i give it a try again, any tips are very welcome.

Does ArchBang x86_64 iso run at all on your laptop, I mean to xorg?

Re: VIA Nano U2250 (samsung NC20)

I never tried the Arch version at that time. Read the Arch wiki though, but it seems outdated, i read the same info 2 or 3 years ago, so i'm curious if it's better working now. But i will give it a try on a rainy sunday, i have 3 linux instances on this laptop, debian, archbang and Fedora. All 32-bit. Fedora is also discontinuing 32-bit support and is far to resource hungry to keep it running, even with XFCE. So i will overwrite the fedora installation with a archbang, may be with a openrc version if i'm sure i can repair the grub entries for the other systems.
