32 bit vs 64 bit Fedora 14 Version

  • For almost all PCs select 32 bit version. For e.g., most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type processors. Good for desktop usage. Almost all multimedia plugins and software works with 32bit edition.
  • Choose 64 bit version to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2 Due, Core 2 Quad, and so on). For servers and advanced feature such as hardware error detection, access to more than 4GB RAM and so on; use 64bit version.

  1. hi guys,
    i downloaded the fedora 14 iso dvd and burnt it. During installation everything was fine except an error threw up that it said some of the files are missing and the installation stopped. It also said corrupt meda. Please help me with this.
    Thanks,
    Shrey

    1. Shrey,

      This can happen sometimes if you don’t verify the data was copied correctly after burning.

      I would recommend setting your burner to the slowest speed and having it verify data upon completion. Setting it to the slower speed will minimize any chance for error during the burn process.

    1. Skeeter,

      First off there are no stupid questions as long as you are learning. There are 5 “CDs” because they cannot fit all the information and dependencies on one. You can also get the DVD ISO which is more practical.

      To answer your question you may not need all the CDs depending on what packages you would like to install. I would recommend downloading the DVD to save time.

    1. Ausi,

      Depending on your system’s current set up you may need to change the BIOS settings to allow it to boot from the DVD reader. If this is already in place during system start up you will have to (depending on your computer manufacturer) press the key to designate the medium you would like to boot from and select your DVD reader.

      Please let me know if this helps.

  2. xtine,

    Just type “uname -a” in the terminal and it return the output below. This (x86_64) is the part you will want to look at and it means the server is 64bit. If it says (i386) you are using a 32 bit operating system.

    [[email protected] ~]# uname -a
    Linux centos-host 2.6.32-220.4.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jan 24 02:13:44 GMT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    If you are talking about your hardware you will just need to google your PC to see the specs.

    Let me know if this helps.

  3. i hav downloaded iso file and extract it using universal extractor but i couldn find .EXE file to install it..pls tel me a correct procedure to install it as soon as possible..
