What are Celron Proccessors


I was looking into Arch Linux, but I realized that my computer has a Celron computer not Pentium II. Pentium procesors fall into the x86 catagory, but how are Celron processors called?

Celeron CPUs are x86 as well. For details on the different versions, see the WikiPedia. Unless you are sure which version you have, use an i386 distribution.

Okay, so Celrons are pII based with smaller L2 cache and slower Front Side Bus.

Mine runs at 533Mhz and has 128KB L2 cache and 66Mhz FSB so it should be Mendocino or Coppermine-128 which would make it pII/pIII based which means that anything i686 optimized should work.
