Linux/x86 or Linux/x64
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2008
As I type this, I am running Ubuntu on an AMD Turion 64 X2 Dell Vostro 1000 laptop. Now, I wanted to download BOINC for this computer, and it comes in Linux/x86 and Linux/x64 versions. Now I'm thinking, 'obviously, I should get the x64 version, because I have a 64-bit microprocessor.' But then again, when I requested my free CD from Ubuntu, I thought I would be running it on a Pentium microprocessor. And yet, whatever I got, it seems to work fine on this. Do the free CDs determine cater for both versions, or is there something about Ubuntu which just works either way? Or did I select x64 somehow? Or am I just confusing myself and the whole x64\x86 thing has nothing to do with microprocessors?
In a nutshell, do I download the x86 version or the x64 version?

[SOLVED] Arch Linux (x86) hangs on shutdown/reboot.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 2, 2012
For some reason, Arch Linux hangs whenever it is time to shutdown or reboot. I'll take a pic of it next time it happens, but I am puzzled. x86_64 Arch does not give me this problem, only x86.
Anyone got any ideas?
is there a difference between linux x86 and linux i686?

i'm trying to install an ati driver from the website and they only list linux x86 and linux x86_64 as options. when i open a terminal and type in uname -a it said i was running i686. is that the same as x86?
i've had problems with my ati drivers. when i installed driver prompted by the system the graphics got worse. does this mean my version of linux is unsupported by the ati drivers possibly?

Filesharing between Windows 7 x64 and Linux x86 very low speeds
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2013
Now, I realize that technically this isn't an Ubuntu issue but I'm not sure it really matters, where the distros are so similar. I'm using a Debian machine to run bittorrent and other large downloads. I generally copy or move the downloaded files to the Windows machine over Samba. Until upgrading my network to gigabit (with a new gigabit switch and cat6) I hadn't really paid attention to the fact that the speeds were actually quite low -- usually peaking out at 4MB/s. I had previously thought that this was a result of the old 100mbit switch but as it turns out it's not. Both the windows machine and Debian machine have gigabit Ethernet cards, and /are/ running at 1000Mbps full duplex. I have verified the network throughput with iperf to be ~950Mbps both ways.
Here's where it gets weird. Samba, FTP, SFTP, NFS and HTTP transfers are all extremely slow.
Samba - ~4300KB/s (Tested with a simple file copy and Windows 7)
SFTP - ~5000KB/s (Tested with WinSCP and openssh-server
64bit linux, x86 apps?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2004
It's about time to upgrade my home pc / workstation, and I'm looking at one of the 64-bit Athlon FXs. If I do decide to go that route, I'd prefer to use a 64-bit version of Linux so that I can make the most of my CPU. Now, I know that Windows XP 64-bit can (or at least is supposed to be able to) run 32-bit apps when running with a 64-bit CPU, and that the FX series is capable of running 32-bit Operating Systems and software, but what I want to know is if I install a 64-bit version of Linux if I can run x86 apps, or if I'll be restricted to running only 64-bit binaries?

How to load AMD Catalyst Proprietary Display Driver Linux x86 & Linux x8664.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2012
How do I load this driver onto my computer? My machine is a Gigabyte A75M-D2H, with and F1 socket and a AMD A6 APU. I propose to download the binary file from http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/am...x86.x86_64.run and then save it to SD RAM USB memory stick. Then I will plug in the USB stick and then restart the machine. Then I will enter the boot menu and set the machine to boot from USB. Presumably the driver will then load into the firmware.
Is this the correct procedure? I have never done a firmware update before so I don't know anything about it. Will this cause me to brick my motherboard? I hope not. Please note that I can't use any linux based features to facilitate this upgrade because I can not boot linux. So I need to load the driver from BIOS.
