High Performance Computing


Hi every Guru,

I am a newie 1st day.
I am trying to implement a CAE system on my i7 8-core machine which has 12Gb RAM, 1TB RAID0 SATA; x86_64 linux2.6.33.3-85 kernel, GNOME 2.30.

My problem is: Can I run an ELF 32-bit LSB executable (Intel 80386) on my system? because my application software vendor only has installation package which was compiled under 32-bit linux.

any clue is highly appreciated. thanks.

To run this app you need to have the 32 bit-libraries installed. Be aware that a 32 bit-application can not benefit from the full amount of RAM you have.

Depends if your system is multi-lib. Which distro ?
Code:
lsb_release -a
uname -a
