Operating a node on a 32bit system

Hello,
I have a dual core laptop running ubuntu 18.04 that I would like to use to create a storage node. lscpu provides the below output, so it looks like I am on a 32bit CPU. Does storj suppor it? I could not find the identity command for 32bit Intel…

Thanks a lot in advance,

Hello @ste,
Welcome to the forum!

We do not build 32-bit versions, but you can try to build them yourself: https://github.com/storj/storj
You can use this post as an example (it’s little bit outdated, the current version is 1.37.1): De-Dockered storage node operation

Thanks @Alexey, very helpful!

One more question: can I creat the identity on a 64 bit system and use it on a 32 bit system (assuming to install it as mentioned in your reply?)

Yes, you can. I would say that generating an identity on this 32-bit system could take weeks, so it’s better to generate it on more new system, then transfer to this one.
