Re: x86 or x86_64 ISO Download



I don't think that this is a 64bit processor, if you are in doubt use the 32bit linux software !

Does it mean I need to get the x86_64 ISO?


Thanks,

Hi,

I am new to Linux and would like to know what I need to download - x86 or x86_64 ISO? I am not sure what type of processor I have. I have RH9

installed


on this machine that I'm trying to upgrade to Fedora, is there a way to

check


my processor type so I can download the appropriate ISO?

Try "cat /proc/cpuinfo". That'll tell you what kind of processor you have:

[root prophead root]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : Pentium III (Coppermine)
stepping : 10
cpu MHz : 864.496
cache size : 256 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 2

bogomips : 1723.59


The Pentium III is also known as the "686" as far as the kernels are
concerned.

RH9 wasn't available for X86_64 (Athlon/Opteron).  "uname -a" will tell
you a lot of info, too, but it won't tell you exactly _which_ Intelish
processor you have, just what the kernel was built for.
