great info idiot reading it!

I searched for a way of finding details of my cpu in my fedora 20 laptop and found

/proc/cpuinfo and lscpu

I am having trouble interpreting the results from more /proc/cpuinfo I got

address sizes : 36 bits physical , 48 bits virtual see file attached neither 32 or 64

in lscpu it starts
Architecture    x86_64 see file 2

In my limited experience x86 is associated e.g. goto WampServer and x86 downloads are 32 bit, but it says x86_64

sigh

Any help much appreciated

x86_64 means 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set

Your (somewhat older) CPU has a 64 bit instruction set as can be found on the Intel site here

Besides what has already been mentioned, all CPU's of the Intel Core 2 series are 64bit.

This is an 'A' because I have been informed about the problem I had and all three respondents reacted quickly.

So thank you all for your help
