Ubuntu 9.04, how can I tell if it is 64 or 32 bit?

Asked by Pete on 2009-09-26

System in installed, I hope it is the 64 bit version, but how do I verify. No information in the About link.

It seems to work much better than windoze 7.

Thanks in advance,

Pete

Run the following command in a Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

uname -a

if you see this at the end it is 32bit: i686 GNU/Linux

if you see this at the end it is 64bit: x86_64 GNU/Linux

Hope that helps.

Can you help with this problem?
