This will be my first install of Gentoo. I have a AMD Athlon(tm) II P320 Dual-Core Processor and I was wondering which architecture of gentoo I should use... http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Athlon%20II%20Dual-Core%20Mobile%20P320%20-%20AMP320SGR22GM.html says (I think) It supports amd64, but http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/index.xml says that i686 cpu users should us x86.

My question: x86 or x86_64 installation? I currently have 32 bit arch linux installed. (i believe I could have installed 64bit though... idk y I installed 32)

btw output of lscpu:

You can use either. I recommend sticking with 64 bit (amd64).


If in doubt, the wiki is usually settles the question.
