Re: x86 or x86_64 ISO Download



hi rayzor,
 
yours is a 32-bit Athlon. the x86_64 distros are for the Athlon64 and the Opteron. An opteron's cpuinfo would be something like:
 
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 15
model           : 5
model name      : AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 144
stepping        : 8
cpu MHz         : 1804.149
cache size      : 1024 KB
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 1
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 syscall nx mmxext lm 3dnowext 3dnow
bogomips        : 3591.37
TLB size        : 1088 4K pages
clflush size    : 64
address sizes   : 40 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
power management: ts ttp
 
and an athlon 64 gives something like:
 
processor : 0
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 15
model : 4
model name : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+
stepping : 10
cpu MHz : 2002.662
cache size : 1024 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 1
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 syscall mmxext lm 3dnowext 3dnow
bogomips : 3932.16
 
Cheers,
 
JB

Does it mean I need to get the x86_64 ISO?

Thanks,
