Excuse me for being so stupid.

I just bought a new computer with an Intel Celeron D 3.333GHz processor.

You can definitely handle i686 which includes all newer processors since years now.

Usually the shop your bought it should have advertized it as 64bit if it is. This site http://www.intel.com/products/proces...on_D/index.htm IMHO clearly states it IS 64bit (I think the Intel64 tells it is 64bit CPU).

here is your processor:

http://www.intel.com/products/proces...on_D/index.htm

might wanna note:

Quote:
64-bit computing on Intel® architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations. Consult with your system vendor for more information.
here's an explanation of what i386, i686, etc means:

http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-4....002d64-Options

Also, you might wanna try slamd64 if you want 64-bit.

Neither, to the best of my knowledge. It is based on Slackware and appears to use the same packaging as Slack.

I guess you cannot do this, unless BlueWhite64 has 32bit compatibility libraries. But you might be able to install packages from Slamd64 (another Slackware based 64bit distro) if the libraries (versions) are similar.

Well, it doesn't look ok. That means your download was corrupted somehow I guess.
Maybe try another way to download it (for example switch to command line and do "wget <URL-to-file>").
