Chapter 2. Understanding i386 and Other Computer Architectures

The Fedora Project provides distributions of Fedora Core for several different types of computer systems. Each distribution of Fedora Core is built for computers based on a specific architecture. The architecture describes the processor on which the computer is built. Most computers come with identifying marks and literature describing the processor inside the computer. Refer to your computer's marks or literature and find its architecture in the list below:


Intel x86-compatible processors, including Intel Pentium and Pentium-MMX, Pentium Pro, Pentium-II, Pentium-III, Celeron, Pentium 4, Xeon, Core Duo, and Centrino/Centrino Duo; VIA C3/C3-m and Eden/Eden-N; and AMD Athlon, AthlonXP, Duron, AthlonMP, Sempron, and Turion


PowerPC processors, such as those found in Apple Power Macintosh, G3, G4, and G5, and IBM pSeries systems


64-bit AMD processors such as Athlon64/FX/X2, Turion64, Opteron; and Intel 64-bit processors such as EM64T
