do i have a 32 bit or a 64 bit computer

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop on which I installed Ibuntu 10.10 for the operating system. How do I determine whether it is a 32 bit or a 64 bit system?
I wish to download some software (Java) but don't know which version to get.
Thanks
Phil

Which version of Ubuntu did you install, 32-bit or 64-bit? At this point, it doesn't matter whether you have a 32-bit or 64-bit CPU, it depends on the OS.

I think the command is uname -r Try it and see what it displays in terminal.

You have a 32-bit processor. So you must have 32-bit Linux and need the 32-bit Java program.
