How do I tell 64 bit slack and 32 bit slack?
I just forgot what kind of slack I am running, 32bit or 64bit? From 'uname', I see:
Linux zuhnb712 3.2.29-smp #2 SMP Mon Sep 17 13:16:43 CDT 2012 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

But I still don't know it is 64 bit or 32 bit.

Can anyone tell me? Thanks.

You are running 32 bit. This is your indicator: i686

The absence of /usr/lib64 might also be a clue ...

If it looks like this:

uname -a
Linux fubar 3.2.29 #2 SMP Mon Sep 17 14:19:22 CDT 2012 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU    E7600  @ 3.06GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

it's 64-bit; yours is 32-bit (plus the other hints in posts above).

The other way is

uname -m
