64 bit vs. 32 bit Performance
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 10, 2006
I am looking for test results, articles, reviews, etc. which compare 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Linux, preferrably SUSE 10.0. My apps are graphics and math intensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am particularly interested to know how 32 bit Linux on a 64 bit machine compares to 64 bit linux on same machine.
64 vs 32 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 15, 2011
I just built a computer with a MSI 760GM-E51 Motherboard, AMD Phenom II 955 CPU and 4 GB memory (2 x 2 GB G.Skill DDR3-1333 PC3-10666)
I first installed 10.04 LTS 64bit. But I think I am going to go to 11.04. Basically I am just looking for a vote, would you install 32 or 64 bit. I am not a real power user, biggest thing I would do would be video editing. If I am going to play resource demanding games, I would probably boot into XP.
So what would you install, 32 or 64?

I know this topic has been posted many time - but specifically, I have a dual core with only 1 g of memory. I multi-task a lot, for instance, encoding videos, working with graphics, compiling source code etc. Though many would recommend I stick with 32 bit because of the small amount of memory, would a 64 bit system improve my ability to multi-task - giving me a faster system overall?
Minecraft: 64 Vs. 32 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2011
This is more of a question, than a request for help, as Ubuntu simply won't work as my everyday desktop.
I was curious as to why I can run Minecraft on a 64-bit version of 11.10, without installing Sun Java or any other configuration (other than installing video drivers, etc.), but not on the 32-bit version? If I try to use the 32-bit version, Minecraft simply exits after trying to create a new world.
Again, mostly asking for knowledge. Thanks.
By the by, one of my biggest pet peeves with Ubuntu at the moment is the lack of feedback for problems via the GUI. A program simply exiting without explanation isn't going to help with mainstream adoption. But, that's just my opinion.
64 vs 32 bit problem with a compiler

Long time Ubuntu user... in 32 bit machines.
Got a new laptop: 64 bit Dell with an i5 processor and an unbelievable pink flamingo colour... I wonder why it was discounted...
So, I download Ubuntu 11.04 (I am using 10.4 in another laptop, 32 bits)... everything fine. I got nearly everything working.
The biggest problem: For work I need gnush C compilers for Renesas processors. They give you 32 bits rpms. We alien them into deb. They work perfectly in Ubuntu 32 bits. But, when I try to install the package in the 64 bit system, it fails. Basically it cannot link some libraries:
sudo dpkg --force-architecture --install gnush_v0901_elf.deb
[sudo] password for hipo:
dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled:

64 Vs 32 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 6, 2011
I'm currently running Slackware 13.37 64bit on my HP 2945 laptop.
My question is this. Is 64 bit really any better than 32 bit for the average game playing, web surfing person?
I started with Slackware 12.0 and then went to SlamD64 when I got my 64 bit machine. I went back to Slackware once 13.0 64 came out. I now am running (as previously stated) Slackware 13.37 64. In the big picture, I'm not sure if there is a need for 64 bit for me, but going back to 32 makes me feel like I'm limiting myself somehow.
The 64 bit OS's aren't always seamless when running 32bit apps. With Slack I've had to install the 32bit compatibility files. I never get errors but when a 32bit apps gives me grief, I'm never really sure that I haven't over looked something and I don't want to spend days researching to find, it's the program and not me. Which either way doesn't eliminate my orginal issue of the program not working.
So for all the tweaking and finessing needed to make/keep 64bit OSs com
64 bit vs. 32 bit Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2007
As most of you know, I went ahead and installed Ubuntu on my AMD dual core machine. Now the question arises: Should I install the 64 bit version and take advantage of all 4 gigs of RAM, or should I just cruise with the 32 bit version for a while? Inquiring minds want to know....
64 bit vs 32 bit ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 24, 2012
I want to install ubuntu 12.04 in my newly bought lenovo laptop which has the following configuration.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz 4 cores
Memory: 8 GB
Nvidia GeForce GT 555 M
Please help me to decide what version (32 or 64 bit) of ubuntu 12.04 I should install on my laptop. The download page on ubuntu website recommends 32 bit. Does it mean that 64 bit has some problems or unstable.
Thank you for your help.
64 bit vs 32 bit Ubuntu

I just wanted to share a little something I learned about the difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Ubuntu.
The most commonly known issue is RAM addressing. If a computer uses more than 4GB of RAM, it is possible that only part of it can be used with 32 bit Ubuntu.
However, I discovered something else. With 32 bit Ubuntu, I found my self limited to moving and copying files under 4GB in size. I had an 8GB file on a drive that I was unable to move before I installed the 64 bit Ubuntu.
I was using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS when I discovered these differences.
64 bit vs. 32 bit Ubuntu 12.10 Compiz stability question
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 15, 2012
I've been on Ubuntu for quite awhile now. Since the shift to Unity I was less than fully happy with the look and feel of the new Unity/Ubuntu desktop, but I have stuck with it and I grew used to it in spite of a few stability issues, mostly due to nVidia drivers, I suppose.
When the new 12.10 came out I went for a clean install of the 64-bit system (as I usually do). The stability's gotten even worse, Compiz keeps crashing and while using Oracle's VirtualBox to run an instance of Windows (yes, I do bloody need Windows to an extent, so back off ) or Thunderbird mail client, the rather nice window selection feature you get by clicking on the active sidebar icon for the 2nd time keeps locking up, I am currently, after doing yet another fresh install, in the process of installing one or two alternative desktops which have proven to be more stable. This is rather unfortunate as Unity kind of grew on me (like some sort of persistent rash).
I was wondering, as I do seem to be one of the man
