Thread: 32- or 64-bit architecture?

  1. #1

    Default 32- or 64-bit architecture?

    Hi, I intend to install a newer version of SUSE because I use the older version 12.2, which is too old for some software. My laptop has processor Intel Pentium Dual core T3200. /proc/cpuinfo gives
    clflush size : 64
    cache_alignment : 64
    address sizes : 36 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
    uname -a gives
    Linux linux-pn65.site 3.4.6-2.10-default #1 SMP Thu Jul 26 09:36:26 UTC 2012 (641c197) i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Does it mean that I can not install LEAP 42.3 or any other leap OS? Is it true that it can be used only for 64 bit systems? Is there an alternative SUSE OS which is suitable for my laptop? I'd be grateful for meaningful advice.

    Looking at THIS PAGE, I see "Instruction set? 64-bit".

    I got that page with a google search for "Pentium Dual core T3200".

    I don't know if that fits your system. My guess is that you do have a 64-bit system.

    Indeed, yes. T3200 is 64-bit.

    I have a couple T3200 systems running 42.2 and 42.3.
