type of CPU

when I look at /proc/cpuinfo it shows "genuine intel" but when seeking packages it always wants amd packages but then the install will fail as the OS reports intel.

What am I doing incorrectly?


  • @wb2dyb No, Intel created the 32 bit i386, which AMD emulated.
    and AMD created the 64 bit version, which Intel emulated.

    So, "amd" refers to amd64 - i.e. the 64 bit version - both Intel and amd!

    If your packages are failing, there's some other reason.
