Is this causing any of my problems?


I have some problems which I will not go into right now and I was looking into different ways of solving them. The main one being a move from Suse 11 to Debian.

One thing I notice however is that output of 'uname' labels the machine and processor as i686 and the hardware platform as i386.

PHP Code:
am0032@linux-ckg1:~> uname -a
Linux linux
-ckg1 2.6.25.5-1.1-default #1 SMP 2008-06-07 01:55:22 +0200 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux 
Should this be so? Shouldn't all three match?

Many thanks

zest

Hi.

Nope, it's fine. Your processor is an i686 (Pentium Pro and above), and the machine class is i386 (32bit PC). Anyone with an i686 PC will get the same output.
