i386 or x8664 on AMD 3400+?
- date: March 12, 2008
Until now I have installed an i386 version on AMD 3400+. For the next, should I be looking at 64 bit version? Also, are all the apps available for that version, if I can install 64bit?
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2. i386 or x8664?

I have a very silly question but I really need to know the answer
I'm not sure which one is the architecture of my processor. I suppose this information is very serious and maybe I already did it all wrong from the very begining when I installed SUSE 10.0!
Through YaST - Hardware - Hardware Information I see that the computer has two processors:
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
whos architecture is: i386
The problem is that I always had the impression their architecture is x86-64.
I checked the AMD website and the wikipedia(!) and if I'm not wrong the processors' architecture is AMD64 wich is equivalent to x86-64
It gets worse. I can't find my linux dvd or iso. At least I remember that every time I had to make a choice of arcitecture I chose x86-64
In case it's usefull my kernel is: 2.6.13-15.15-smp
I hope you enjoyed this post

I am running crazy about the kind of processor I have here.
Here is what I got - short output:

My motherboard has AMD Athlon 64
Do I install the i386 or AMD64 Ubuntu 8.10 version?
PS: I use 7.10 i386 now.
i386 or amd64 in an AMD Athlon X2 + nForce system
- date: January 10, 2008
I am going to upgrade my 5 years old PC to a brand new AMD Athlon X2 + nForce system. I am a Debian Etch user and going to stick with it. I am going to install Debian Etch on my new system, so I did lot of googling to find which architecture of the kernel is good for my new system. But, I am not satisfied with the results.
Now, my questions are:
1) I have 3 sets of Debian Etch i386 DVD. Can I use it on my 64 bit system? I would like to keep all the binaries in 32 bit except the kernel which is obviously will be 64 bit (available in i386 DVD).
2) If I have to install pure AMD64 Debian Etch, then I do not want to use 'chroot' environment to run 32 bit applications. I will rather install 32 bit libraries. Is this ok to run all the 32 bit applications (specially java, flash)?
3) In either way, does nVidia forceware work with integrated Geforce 6100 ?
4) Do I need to install any special driver for nForce mainboard to unlock all the features or linux has all the drivers bundled for nFor

I have to install my ubuntu server again ( I was hacked, so replacing the Intrepid Ibex with Lusty Lynx) and have to do it from a usb flash drive as my cd rom doesn't work. I need to know if my system is amd64 (which I think it is, it was built from scratch about 4 years ago or i386. Entering 'uname -r' just gave me numbers like 12.?.? (sorry didn't write it down, now I'm on the Windows computer. But it didn't show amd64 or i386 so I'm wondering how to find out. Thanks

Which one should I install?
On the Ubuntu Download Page, i386 is marked "recommended". However, my processor is 64-bit.
Why is and64 recommended? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the amd64 Ubuntu? And which one should I install?
How do I tell if my computer is running i386 or amd64?

I do not know what i386 and amd64 mean, although I think it has to do with the processor. I put some of my PC's specs below.
Dell Inspiron 530s
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20GHz
32-bit Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2)
Need Life Raft! Kubuntu or Ubuntu / X86 or X8664

I'm just wondering which Ubuntu to use on my PC's
Since Ubuntu/Gnome is the main branch
Is Kubuntu as well Polished or just a half baked patch job?
I have been really loving using X86-64 distros for their network and Memory speed compared to same 32bit version,
however Suse and Mandriva had noteable bugs issues (fast clock, conflicting package issues) .
I love KDE , havent used Gnome much at all
How well do the x8-64 Ubuntu family run?
what is the difference between I386 and x8664?
