Looks like you can also run:
getconf LONG_BIT

I believe i686 is 32Bit.

Your CPU is 32 bit. It is missing the "long mode" ("lm") flag indicating 64 bit capability.

And yes, i686 is a 32 bit build.

I thought all the i series cpu's were 64bit capable so you could actually run 64bit on this CPU if you wanted, however the i686 is indeed 32bit so could it be that the kernel doesnt know what the lm flag is?

>>so you could actually run 64bit on this CPU if you wanted

To clarify:  This means a 64Bit Linux not the 64 Bit Oracle until you run a 64 Bit Linux.
