I found this output from
Architecture: i686 CPU op-mode(s): 32-bit Byte Order: Little Endian CPU(s): 2 On-line CPU(s) list: 0,1 Thread(s) per core: 1 Core(s) per socket: 2 Socket(s): 1 Vendor ID: GenuineIntel CPU family: 6 Model: 14 Stepping: 8 CPU MHz: 800.000 BogoMIPS: 3458.89 L1d cache: 32K L1i cache: 32K L2 cache: 2048K
So, does it show that I have no hope for 64 bit linux OS?
Currently I am running a 32 bit OS (pretty happy with it), and when I tried to run a 64 bit version from a pen-drive my laptop stopped responding. So removed the pendrive, booted again & my 32 bit installed OS still runs fine. But my problem is, Google Chrome has dropped support for 32 bit Linux OS, so I am hoping to move to a 64 bit edition.
This laptop is in good condition and I don't want to replace it.
