Version of Fedora


How do I check if I installed the 64-bit Fedora 10 or 32-bit Fedora 10? I don't remember which one I installed. I am trying to install Qt onto my Linux system, but figure I shouldn't download the 64-bit Qt version if I only installed 32-bit Fedora, right? Thanks!

Well I did somem more searching and I found the command uname. The results it gives me are:

Linux Larry 2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc10.i686 #1 SMP Wed May 20 23:10:16 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I don't see anything about 64-bit mentioned so I am guessing I have the 32-bit version installed. Is there a way I can upgrade the 32-bit to 64-bit without formatting and re-installing if I have the 32-bit version installed? Thanks!

Yes you have 32 bits version installed.
If you like to us 32 bits version just install 64 bits version
