Question & Answer
How can you determine if a UNIX® or Linux® application or operating system is of a 32 bit or 64 bit architecture?
On occasion it may become necessary to confirm the bit rate of a given UNIX or Linux application to determine if it is compatible with the bit rate of the operating system.
Note: A 32-bit application can run on a 64-bit operating system, but not vice versa.
- To determine the bit rate of an application, issue the following command:
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1
- To determine the bit rate of the operating system on Solaris, issue the following command:
64-bit sparcv9 kernel modules
