need Opera install for i386, _not_ AMD - where to find that install link, please?

  • hello,

    i'm trying to install Opera on an Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS OS system on an Acer laptop. however, each and every time i attempt to click the link to download for ubuntu linux, it downloads a version that is only compatible with an AMD 64-bit chip. my Acer laptop has an intel processor, which is a 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron 2955U; that is 64-bit, it's just not AMD, obviously. i need the link for the Opera browser install for Intel i386, not AMD x86_64, please. could anyone please tell me where i might find this, please? thank you in advance.

    best,

  • It's for 64bit only, and as far as I know there are no plans to ever support 32bit systems.

  • @linuxmnt7

    thank you for responding. but i'm afraid i don't understand your response, it was a bit too terse. what does that have to do with my issue? i all ready stated i'm 64-bit with the Intel Celeron 2955U processor, not 32. what i'm seeking is i386, not AMD. am i missing something here? please advise.

    best,

  • AMD64 is the right version. Debian's wiki says it nice and shortly

    Q: Is this port only for AMD 64-bit [[CPUs]]?

    A: No. "AMD64" is the name chosen by AMD for their 64-bit extension to the Intel x86 instruction set. Before release, it was called "x86-64" or "x86_64", and some distributions still use these names. Intel refers to its AMD64 implementation as "Intel64" previously named "EM64T". The architecture is AMD64-compatible and Debian AMD64 will run on AMD and Intel processors with 64-bit support. Because of the technology paternity, Debian uses the name "AMD64".
    --https://wiki.debian.org/DebianAMD64Faq

    From the real wiki about AMD64

    Some in the industry, including Apple, use x86-64 and x86_64, while others, notably Sun Microsystems (now Oracle Corporation) and Microsoft, use x64 while the BSD family of OSs and several Linux distributions use AMD64.

    Opera also calls it AMD64.

  • I think that your Chromebook is 64bit as well.

  • What is the ID on your kernel? On a 64-bit processor you can install and run either 32-bit or 64-bit Linux, but 32-bit Linux will not run 64-bit software. If your system says it is i386 through i686 then it is 32-bit; if it says AMD64 or x86_64 then it is 64-bit.
