Riddle me this,
A person on IRC gives the output of cpuinfo and asks what version of the install disk should I download? Valid newbie question on #gentoo. I give it the once over and tell him x86.
Then suddenly another person shouts “NO… you want i686 not x86.”
Will someone smarter than me explain to me why x86 is wrong but somehow i686 is correct?
Enjoy the Penguins!
