--> Should I choose 32 or 64 bit Linux?
There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions available. I want to use Linux for a Desktop PC and for a Media Center PC, and I am an utter newbie to Linux. Is there any benefit in 64-bit for me, or will I run into problems because things work better on 32-bit?

Just a post to help those guys trying to do that, since I don't have a blog.
This works for linux too. Feel free to edit it and improve it.
how to check a linux file(.so) is of 32 or 64 bit from windows machine
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
For Checking whether a particular windows dll is of 32 or 64 bit, reading PE header will yield the needed result. But there is a need to find whether a linux file (.so) is of 32 or 64 bit.
When searched, found linux shell scripts or commands which help to find this information. But we need to find this from a windows environment. Any windows commands or code which runs on Windows OS should be able to provide this info.
Is there an command in linux to find out whether a library has been build in 32 or 64 bit mode
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
Fedora 14 Linux
I have this static library that was build from a previous programmer. However, he has left the company and we don't have the source code. All we have is the header files *.h and the libnet.a static library.
When I am try and link this with our application. I get a incompatible linker error. I think the problem is that the static library has been built on a 32 bit machine. And I am trying to link using a 64 bit machine. I could compile my application using the cflag -m32. However, I just want to know if there is any command that will give me if the static library was built in either 32 or 64 bit mode?
Many thanks for any suggestions,
Mac OS X Lion host, Latest VirtualBox, Pangolin Guest 32 or 64 bit?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2012
I've got a 2011 MacBook Air running Lion, and the latest VirtualBox. I'm looking to perform a new Ubuntu install using 12.04 (Pangolin). I'm just wondering, should I go with 32-bit or 64-bit in the guest? I know VirtualBox will do both, but I confess I still don't understand the practical issues/differences/tradeoffs.
Really I just use the Ubuntu VM for light development-type stuff (say scripting, like Lua or Python) now and then. I'm probably more concerned about battery usage than raw performance.
Advice? Is there a big page somewhere that will explain all the trade-offs to me?
32 or 64 bit Ubuntu 11.04, which one?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 28, 2011
Should I select 32 or 64 bit version of 11.04?
I've been using 64 bit Karmic and Maverick but I see Ubuntu recommends the 32 bit version of 11.04. How come they recommend 32 and not 64 bit? Which one is best?
32 or 64 bit Ubuntu for Acer Revo R3700
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2012
I need to install Ubuntu on an Acer Revo R3700. Will the 64 bit version work on it or should I use the 32 bit?
I think I'll need version 10.04 or 10.10, so won't be able to use the latest version.
Also, can anyone point me to all the required drivers for the R3700 and how to install them?
Ubuntu 32 or 64 bits on an Atom with 1gb of RAM?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 30, 2010
I am building a small PC using an Intel Atom D510 with 1gb of RAM. It will be used mainly for web surfing.
Of course I am installing in it Ubuntu 10.04, but I can't decide between 32 and 64 bits. On one hand 64 bits uses more RAM (remember I only have 1 gb) and has some problems with Flash, but on the other, it is faster, which can be important when using a slow processor like the Atom. Besides, I've read on various web pages that programs compiled in 64 bits usually assume that the processor has more capabilities (like SSE) and, by using them, can be more efficient.
What would you suggest I choose? Has anyone tested the difference between 32 and 64 bits on an Atom?
Thanks you very much
Which to install 32 or 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 5, 2012
I just got a new high power computer and want to confirm which to install of 12.04 - 32 or 64 bit?
Intel DZ77BH-55K motherboard
Intel i7 3770 Ivy Bridge CPU at 3.4 GHz
Radeon 7750 1 Gig 800 MHz display card
16 Gig memory
1T hard drive for Ubuntu only
I thought this might be a common question, but a search turned up nothing definitive.
I simply assumed that 64 bit would be the answer, but I see that 32 bit is recommended, and if I select 64 bit, it appears that I'm still only offered 32 bit even though 64 bit is selected - so WHERE can I get a for sure 64 bit version for normal desktop use?
Last, but not least, which is the preferred installation method for this machine?
Should I install 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 20, 2011
I want to install Ubuntu 10.04 (I heard 10.10 doesn't work well with my network card) but I wanted to ask if I should install the 32 or 64 bit. My current machine runs 64-bit Windows 7.
Under the "Select a Release" page, I found the following regarding the 64-bit install:
"Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit code, use the Intel x86 images instead."
My processor is: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU @ 2.10GHz 2.1o GHz
Do I install 32-bit since I have an Intel chip? Or the 64-bit because I have a Core duo?
Thank you in advance,
