CentOS Linux 7 32-bit x86 (i386) Architecture Released

Tuesday , 13, October 2015 23 Comments

The Alternative Architecture Special Interest Group (AltArch SIG) is happy to announce the release the x86 32-bit version of CentOS Linux 7.  This architecture is also known as i386 or i686.  You can get this version of CentOS from the INFO page.

This version of CentOS Linux 7 is for PAE capable 32 bit machines, including x86 based IOT boards similar to the Intel Edison.  It joins the 64-bit ARMv8 (aarch64) architecture as a fully released AltArch version.

Work within the AltArch SIG currently continues on the 32-bit ARMv7, 64-bit PPC little-endian, and 64-bit PPC big-endian architectures.

    Guys, you made my day brighter! Now I can update my 32b machines running C6.

    A really really good job, appreciated!

    Thanks, trying to install on VMWare Workstation 12 (both minimal and full) but no network card appears 🙁

    I am happy to know that there is CentOS 7 for 32 bit machines. I want to know that can we use this version on a production environment ?

  • Dennis Leiterman says:

    Great!!! Thanks to everyone that made this happen. I am stuck with 32 bit visualization on a few machines and was forced to stay at Centos 6.7. This is very great news. Just built my first 32 bit Centos 7 virtual machine and it works great...thanks again!!!!

    Thank you!

  • Wade Hampton says:

    Thanks. This gives us a simpler upgrade path to CentOS 7! I also look forward to using it with embedded systems.

  • Vitaliy says:

    How about repos for this architecture?

  • Karsten Harder says:

    I'm having trouble downloading and burning the ISO files. And the sha256 values don't add up. Please help. How about a torrent option?

  • Nishith says:

    Reinstalling...

  • RockyS says:

    Thank you very much guys!!! 🙂

    Thank You very very much guys!! Just made my life easier

  • papitshen says:

  • digitalfredy says:

    No ath5k wi-fi support, neither standard or plus kernel:

    [root@nb100-lan ~]# uname -r
    3.10.0-327.10.1.el7.centos.plus.i686
    [root@nb100-lan ~]# modprobe ath5k
    modprobe: FATAL: Module ath5k not found.

    And please put the repo in the i386 installer, I waste my time using standard repos syntax

    I installed the CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1511, but when I reboot the system, it is only showing one CPU, the machine is a HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 server, which has a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 v3 @ 2.60GHz processor, and has 8 cores, and hyper-threading is enabled in the BIOS, so the OS should see total of 16 CPUs, but it is only showing one CPU.

  • Alexandr says:

    Tell me please where we can see what program minimum version 7 and in others?

  • Benhaddi Abderrahman says:

    I downloaded "CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1611.iso" three times and eatch time the verification with winmd5 answer: "Not Matched" I don't know how to obtain a valid one.
    Please help me.

    • Although I don't know the program, the name "winmd5" suggests it uses MD5 hashes for checking the image. The published hashes are SHA256.

      Here are all the hashes:
      CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1611.iso
      MD5: 574d863fc4ed0e6a5441d88495a293f7
      SHA1: ab849b047459dc3ea2bfeb065cafb01a5d3b9ceb
      SHA256: 578a475248ecef427269357b7ff22b973a007f534988f39f365b8dded43fad72

      CentOS-7-i386-Everything-1708.iso
      MD5: 54df90d489072f3a2561a764f050b69e
      SHA1: d7a8f713d60bc934dca22f3525d09034e4af3c16

      Although I'd suggest using the DVD image instead of Everything (both will work just fine, but Everything is extra download):
      CentOS-7-i386-DVD-1708.iso
      MD5: 481acc50cb8f271f40f57d3f75dca942
      SHA1: 08326c9d1704bc875f517b6806715ffc4ceef745
      SHA256: 36df0a7d687e058ec11708ccace7981fe2faf1040d4efd796a4ffab67863eace
