I just looked at Ubuntu's website, and if you want 64-bit you have to specifically check a box, otherwise it'll download 32-bit Ubuntu.

So you're 100% your Windows is 32 bit?
If you do "cat /proc/cpuinfo" in Ubuntu and get 64, then I would vote your Windows is 64 as well, since the manufacturer (Dell/Hp/whatever...) probably put in the "right" OS for your CPU architecture.

EDIT: Perhaps it doesn't matter, since Asciisector for windows is always 32 bit? Never mind.

That's really strange. I get a garbled savegame name when in Ubuntu 32-bit. You can still load it in your Ubuntu 32-bit, just not your Windows?

My system is 32 bit

Yes, I've done some thinking/reading and "i686" definitely means 32 bit. I thought Christians idea sounded plausible, so I don't know where this puts the current situation.

Also, if you have more than 4 Gb RAM, and a 64 bit CPU (cat /proc/cpuinfo) then you might want to install the 64 bit next time. otherwise I wouldn't bother with it. As I've previously said, I'm running a 32 bit OS on a 64 bit Intel, and I "only" have 2 Gb ram, (=95% more than I need :))

So then it's safe to say I have 32 bit Ubuntu and 32 bit Windows.

If you just downloaded Ubuntu from the regular www.ubuntu.com -site and didn't choose a specific "alternative cd:s" section, then you have the 32 bit.


Good point. With Ubuntu, if he just  downloaded the "normal" cd he would have the 32-bit release.

Hmm, the usual lspci and/or lshw will tell you your actual physical architecture, and but how to see which one is installed... the kernel thing was a good idea.

If you just downloaded Ubuntu from the regular www.ubuntu.com -site and didn't choose a specific "alternative cd:s" section, then you have the 32 bit.

Code: [Select]
cat /proc/cpuinfo
If this tells you 32 bit, then that's what you're running since you can't use a 64 bit OS on a 32 bit architecture. But if it says 64, then we still don't know, since you might be running a 32 bit OS on a 64 bit computer (like I am).

I'm afraid I'm not a very good "hacker", at all.  :heh:

@ CK or Cthulhu or Flyboy or another Linux user:

How can I tell if Ubuntu 9.10 is 32 or 64 bit?


Run:
Quote
uname -a

This will print out a line of various information about your system. On my sister's laptop (my own Linux box is down right now - some sort of a hardware issue) the last part of that line is:
Quote
i686 GNU/Linux


Note the "i686". That's the processor architecture. I'm not positive, but if you're running Linux 64-bit on an Intel processor, one would assume that that part of the printout would read "x86_64". It's way easier to tell on Fedora, since the processor architecture is part of the kernel name in /boot.

@CK I'll have to check on that in a little bit

@windmill_man At least you get a sorry from the NPCs that hit you accidentally. I get nothing...
