CentOS 7 available for 32-bit architectures

centos 7 arm64

This is what CentOS 7 looks like with the Gnome desktop, now it is also available for older i386 architectures

After a few months of development, the team behind CentOS development has announced that the latest version of their system now available for i386 (32-bit) architectures.

Even today many people have a computer at home that has decent performance but that your processor does not support 64-bit architectureFor example, I myself have a couple of fully functional 32-bit computers at home. Therefore I see it well that developers continue to worry about 32-bit users.

In this blog we had already talked about version 7 of CentOS, specifically when it was released in ARM64 architectures. CentOS it really is a fork of the Red Hat system The most striking feature of its support is its long duration, which lasts 10 years.

Actually there was already a version considered 32/64 bits but it shouldn't work very well on older architectures (i386) and for this reason AltArch Special Interest Group This exclusive version of the 32-bit machines has been released.

Regarding its download, we will do it from the CentO official mirrorS in which we can download version 7 of CentOS and choose between 4 different versions:

  • netinstall, the smallest and most basic of all, it only occupies 311 megabytes and is intended for network installation.
  • Minimum: It has the most basic packages for operation, occupies 549 megabytes and therefore fits on any conventional CD-ROM.
  • DVD: The most standard image of all, it brings many packages and things and therefore occupies 3,9 Gigabytes, just enough to be able to burn the image on a DVD5.
  • Everything: As its name suggests it includes absolutely all CentOS packages, its size is 5,9 Gigs which does not fit on a DVD5, therefore you can opt for an installation from a pendrive using programs such as yumi or universal usb installer, use a DVD9 to record it or just use a virtual machine like VirtualBox.
