I want to install Aptitude on Debian 5.0.1 running on Xeon E5430
I believe Xeon E5430's architecture is Intel 64 (x86-64).
On the aptitude download webpage I have to select among the following architectures:
(sorry I still cannot post URL)
I do know know which architecture one I should choose for XEON E5430.
- ia64? This is Intel Itanium's 64 bit architecture.
- amd64? This is AMD's 64 bit architecture.
- i386? This is 32 bit architecture.
I would go for the AMD64.
AMD64 does not mean that it works only on AMD 64-bit.
AMD64 is the architecture name of both Intel and AMD 64-bit processors.
Hope I have understood the question correctly.
