hardware name/platform/CPU type?
In command "uname -a", what is the difference between :-
Hardware name(-m)/Processor type(-p)/Hardware platform(-i)
my system has RH 9.0 CPU Intel 1.6GHz.
-m : i686 hardware name
-p : i686 Processor type
-i : i386 hardware platform
i also need mplayer for RH9.0 in the site freshrpm it shows i386 with in the rpm package name what it denotes. is that one is compatible with my system? if its not then what should i do for it?
