Advice: will this CPU run Lubuntu 20.04?

I’ve got an old Toshiba Satellite Pro A100 (I believe) that I’m wondering if I can install the new Lubuntu on. The CPU info follows. I’m sorry — I can’t work out it if it is 64-bit capable, of whether I need to install a 32-bit OS on it. Thanks for any help with this!

It needs the lm flag to do 64 bit.

Hmm… I assume this is a “no”, then - it won’t run latest Lubuntu. :slightly_frowning_face: Which is a wee shame!

Thanks for the quick reply, all the same. Much appreciated!

Right. It’s a no. I would suggest you consider looking at Debian as an alternative.
