My old Mac mini has an Intel Core 2 Duo, and that is supposed to be a 64-bit
machine. However, when I should pick the Ubuntu version for this Mac from this
both the drop-down menus says "32-bit — for machines with less than 2GB RAM".
That is what I picked, and I am afraid that prevents me from running 64-bit
You are right, when I do (cons *CPU (version T)), then I get
("emu" 16 1 16).
There is a chance I could have managed to run some 64-bit Linux on this old Mac
if I went for a non-GUI version, or a version that was happy with only 1GB RAM,
but as it is, I am quite satisfied that I managed to get Linux running at all
on this Mac.

Hmm, I don't know, but isn't the Mac mini hardware 32-bits?

If so, perhaps it compiled the emulator, which is the fallback
architecture if the machine is neither arm64, x86_64 or ppc64le?
What does *CPU say? I suspect
: (cons *CPU (version T))
-> ("emu" 16 1 16)
