View Full Version : [kubuntu] Installed Kubuntu For The Wrong Archetecture

July 10th, 2011, 06:01 PM

A couple weeks ago I became fed up with using Backtrack5 as a primary OS, as fun as it is, and installed Kubuntu 64-bit for AMD on a laptop with an intel chip. I didn't see an intel iso on Kubuntu's site right away, and I suppose I was too excited to try it to care. I have been having some problems with plugins working correctly, but i'm not even sure this architectural mixup is to blame for that.

To cut to the chase, should I be worried about installing kubuntu that was intended for AMD on a board with an intel chip? I figure i havent really done anything I can't easily redo yet, and if I want to reinstall, i'd like to do it before I cross that bridge!

64-bit (K)Ubuntu will run on Intel 64-bit chips just fine. The spec was first created by AMD, which is why it has that name.
