Subject: how to tell i386 from x86-64 kernel
Date: Fri, 1 Feb 2008 01:42:12 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080201004212.GA2818@elf.ucw.cz> (raw)

Hi!

Quiz: on a booted system, how do you tell 32bit from 64bit kernel?

A1: zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CONFIG_64

...but config.gz is optional

A2: cat /proc/meminfo  | grep High

...but i386 kernel could have highmem disabled

What is _your_ answer? ;-)>
