I am on a Busybox and uname –a results: Linux 3.14.28-1.12 #1 SMP Thu Jun 15 08:53:06 CEST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux. Is this a 32 bit architecture or how can I check it?

Yes, your architecture is 32-bit.

Arm versions under armv8 are 32-bit, but not all versions 8 and over are 64-bit.

Also, you can check whether your system is 32-bit or 64-bit using:

getconf LONG_BIT
  • Sorry, getconf is not known on BUSYBOX: # getconf LONG_BIT results to -sh: getconf: not found – musbach Jul 20 '17 at 18:35
  • Oh, I didn't check that, I just tested it on Ubuntu... – jusola Jul 20 '17 at 18:43
