- HiDoes GGNFS suppots 1024 bits? if no, what is the alternative package.I know the time to factor 1024 bits is too much but I want to work on one step of ggnfs in my master.Thanks in advanceGuirgis

And I'm not sure if it could even select a suitable polynomial in a reasonable time, you would need to use msieve on a GPU to have any chance.

Ask on http://mersenneforum.org/ if you want more details of where the limits are.
