Sparc or Alpha
I know very little about hardward, but I am trying to learn. My question is regarding Sparc and Alpha. This came up when I was trying to download a realplayer so I could listen to CBC radio online. I had to choose between Redhat/Sparc or Redhat/Alpha and I have no idea what either of them means. I think it has to do with processers but that is just a guess. I don't think I use either. How do I find out? I tried using uname -a and this is what it gives me:
Linux devinsbox 2.4.18-14 #1 Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Does this tell me?
