I’m really excited that there’s an increasing number of Linux questions on Yahoo! Answers.
“I want to install the new Ubuntu or some other Linux distro. How do I check if I can run 32bit or 64 bit on a computer already running linux?”
Actually, this should be really easy on your Linux box.
- Open up the terminal
- Type uname -m
If you see i386 or i686 then your current hardware is 32 bit. If you see x86_64 then your current hardware definitely supports 64 bit software.
