The Ubuntu Website states that Ubuntu Core is

Now available on a wide range of 32 and 64-bit ARM and X86 platforms.

The following page says

64-bit PC (AMD64) snappy image Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead.

But there is no link to the x86 32 bit image on the page.


Searching around, I find this:

Currently, no 32-bit version of Snappy Ubuntu Core is built.

Is a 32 bit X86 version of snappy core available, and if so, where is it?

Found it here:- http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/daily-preinstalled/current/ after following this discussion:-http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ubuntu.devel.snappy/117 "I want to port Ubuntu core to the x86 based hardware that I am working with. Currently I am running Ubuntu Trusty based image on it and would want to run Ubuntu snappy core on the same."

To my best of knowledge, 32-bit version is not available. Also, 32-bit or not, it can not be directly installed on a PC. You must use the virtualization tools. Even if you download the snappy images there is no way to install them directly to PC/liveCD/USB etc.

  • Thank you. That is the full desktop image, not the snappy core image.

  • Thanks Ron, I am already running that. I have some old x86 thin clients that I would like to try core on if I can find the 32bit image referred to on the site.
