Why is 32 bit (recommended) vs 64 bit Ubuntu

The desktop download screen lists the 32 bit versions as (recommended) vs the 64 bit.
I'm curious as to why that would be so for 64 bit computers.
64 bit vs 32 bit Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 18, 2013
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
Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit vs 32 bit in Asus 1225B
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 28, 2013
Hi, I have tried 32 bit Ubuntu 12.04 on an Asus EEE PC 1225B, and it worked well for me. I'm wondering wheter I can run the 64 bit version as well. Below is the spec for the laptop/netbook (its pretty borderline). Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor reported everything is okay except for the RAM part. And seeing how the 32 bit version has no problem with RAM usage, I was wondering wheter I can run 64 bit version, and how much RAM will it be using.
AMDŽ APU E450 1.65GHz (dual core)
AMDŽ Radeon HD 6320
DDR3, 1 x On Board Memory, 2GB (not upgradeable)
1 x HDMI
Beside that, I'm also looking into Xubuntu and Lubuntu. Although since Xubuntu uses Ubuntu Software Center 188.8.131.52, I'm more inclined to try Xubuntu instead. Any advice on this? I would only need to run GrADS, Scilab 5.4.0 (6.0 when it has stable release), and Firefox. I'm open to both 32 and 64 bit version.
Seeing how Lubuntu has low RAM usage, I was wondering If I can run Lubuntu inside a virtual PC inside Win 7 instead. How does this
How do i tell if 32 bit or 64 bit ubuntu is installed on a machine?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 29, 2008
I've tried all the uname options. uname -m says "x86_64", but that might just be describing the hardware, not the software. In /boot, in config-2.6.24-16, CONFIG_64BIT=Y, so maybe that means it's 64-bit?
64 bit or 32 bit Ubuntu 10.04 in a multiple boot with windows 64 and 32 bit ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 20, 2010
I have Vista and windows 7 both as 64 bit versions installed on the same hard drive with XP Pro 32 bit on separate partitions. So should I install the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04 on this system to best be able to view and edit, copy and paste, and share folders and files between all 3 of these operating systems ? Is it true that 32 bit systems can not access any folders or files created by or on a 64 bit system, but a 64 bit can handle accessing 32 bit files, right ?
[SOLVED] Installing 64 bit Ubuntu over 32 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2010
I just downloaded Ubuntu remix Netbook edition 10.10. during the installation i wasnt paying attention and I downloaded the 32 bit version... The thing is the Unity interface is not showing up, and perhaps its becuase of this 32 bit thing.
Anyway I would like to install the 64 bit version, not . Ive read around that the best way is to uninstall everything from windows (its dual boot) and re install. The problem is I dont have a windows xp start up cd, so that wouldnt work, or would be complicated. However somewhere I read I could install over it, and I would like your thoughts. First off how would that work?? Ive learned my lesson not to play with the OS...
So I guess it all comes down to how to delete Ubuntu, without a Windows xp CD. To make it harder I dont know anything of computers so yay!
WxWidgets 3, C++, Gnome 3, freeGLUT, codebloks, ubuntu 12.10 lts 64 bit query
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 17, 2013
I would like to devlop a 3D application on Ubuntu, in Gnome 3 using freeglut on an wxGlCanvas for Ubuntu.
When is WxWidgets 3 being introduced? I want to upgrade and purchase the upcoming book.
What are some good books for learning freeglut?
Is there a wx object that parses http sites?
I would appreaciate information about deploying onto Ubuntu too. My skills at writing installation code are pretty lacking. So any links to sites about building installation executables to integrate with the software updater for Gnome 3 would be much appreciated.
Thanking you for your input beforehand,
How to install 32 bit glibc 2.9 or later on 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 27, 2012
I have installated 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04. Installing the software I need to test and I get the following error:
* Checking kernel version (2.6.27 or later required)...
* Checking for glibc...
This product requires the GNU C Runtime Library (glibc) version 2.9 or later. Your system must be upgraded before installation can proceed.
I tried the following that I find on Google:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libsls
Nothing is installed.
sudo apt-get install *.i686
Nothing is installed.
apt-get install libc6-i686
"Package libc6-i686 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsolete, or is only available from another source E: Package 'libc6-i686' has no installation candidate.
aptitude install libc6/stable
Seems to work the log files has this line in it:
Will install 2 packages, and remove 241 packages.
When I tried to re-install the software to test I still get the same
[SOLVED] Is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit available for Intel also ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 7, 2012
Well i am very much new to Ubuntu, infact i am just going to download it and start using it. However i could not find any 64 release for intel architecture, its only for amd only.
So my question is there any release for intel 64 bit also, if no then would that 64bit amd release work on Intel ? Because if that would not work then i have no choice but to download 32 bit for Intel.
