Just got the email about 2.27 - Core Update 162.
The email mentions it will be the last release supporting i586.
I did some looking here and web searching/reading. I now have no more idea if my box currently running ipfire is i586 than I did before trying to figure it out.
Ipfire tells me what is shown below. Is x86_64 good for the future?
(yes, it is embarrassing to admit that I’ve been in the computer industry for a long time and probably should know the answer off the top of my head…)
