Rule one of troubleshooting: only change one variable at a time. First update Firebird, only then update to linux if the problem persists. Doing both at the same time can be expensive (eg retraining staff for the new environment)

AMD64 is also compatible with Intel. It is simply called AMD64 because AMD was the first to introduce a 64 bit x86 instructionset. This instructionset is also used by Intel due to an IP-'sharing' between AMD and Intel.

BTW: Might be worthwhile to rename AMD64 to x64 (ex like Sun has done) to prevent this kind of confusion.
