If you are unsure if your system/processor is 32 bits or 64 bits, give the following command:
And that outcome will reveal it.
For example, if you get this:
Then the system is capable of running SL 64 bits.
You need to check if among the flags there is "lm".
The "lm" flag means "Long Mode" cpu -> 64 bits
Anything else, without "lm", means that you can only install SL 32 bits.
Note: using "uname" will not work since uname only gives information on the used OS.
That means that installing SL 32 bits on a 64 bits system will reveal i386/i686 when using uname.
