Hello,

I went to oracle site to download 11g R2 for a 32 bit liknux machine.

I only saw for Linux X86 and 64 bit.

Can anybody help on which to go for or a link to where i can get.

Thank you

Thanks for your response BlackSwan.

I saw the same thing there.
Is Linux X 86 the same thing as 32bit machine.
Will it work on 32 bit machine?

"Linux x86" is 32-bit, as best as I know

X86 is most definitely referring to 32-bit. But I have to ask - machines that are 64-bit capable have been shipping for a long time - about five plus years in the server market, and three plus years in the personal market. Are you sure your machine isn't 64-bit capable?! I don't believe there are really any generally available 32-bit only machines being sold in a while. Even the atom processor does 64-bit .......

Thanks a lot.

I really do wonder myself.

I have linux on a gateway machine
What query do I type to see if it is 64 bit or 32 bit?

As BlackSwan already shown,
use
uname -a

If output is x86_64/* it is 64 bit.
Linux kamas 2.6.24-27-server #1 SMP Fri Mar 12 01:23:09 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux


If output has i386/../i686 it is 32 bit.
Linux kalyani 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:27:30 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Blackswan is showing the commands to show if the OS installed is 32-bit or 64-bit.

It is possible to run a 32-bit X86 operating system on X86_64 processors, so the question might be - how do I tell if my CPU is capable of 64-bit or not?

It is not too uncommon for people to install a 32-bit OS on a box that can in fact support 64-bit. I highly advocate installing 64-bit whenever possible - even if you have less than four gigabytes of RAM. You won't have to do a complete OS re-install just to upgrade the RAM should it ever become necessary Wink.

I believe some light can be shed by the original poster pasting the output of 'cat /proc/cpu' from the machine he is attempting to use. If this is a name-brand machine, knowing the specifics on the brand and model would probably tell as well.

One thing to keep in mind - unless something radically has changed in the last few days, Oracle does not support running 32-bit Oracle on a 64-bit OS.

I always welcome suggestions, comments, and criticisms.
