Downgrade from 64 bit to 32 bit Ubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 7, 2011
I'd like to downgrade my system from 64 bit Ubuntu to 32 bit (various reasons). 2 questions:
1) Does 32 bit Ubuntu support 4 GB of RAM?
2) How should I do this? Just back everything up, do it w/a stock 32 bit Ubuntu CD, then restore, and finally add the System76 repository?
Of course, if I could convince a 32 bit Second Life client to play streaming audio on 64 bit Ubuntu, I wouldn't need to do this. But that's been a long, and unsuccessful, battle.
Trouble installing mimio 32 bit on 64 bit ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 2, 2011
I'm trying to install 32 bit mimio software for an interactive whiteboard onto a 64 bit laptop running ubuntu.
I've used getlibs to install some of the missing libraries but am still having truoble with the install.
The output is as follows:
MBR Error 1 on Installation of 12.10 desktop ubuntu 64 bit.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2012
I hope someone can help with this. I recently had a virus on my old computer hard drive and I decided to wipe everything out with Acronis using a DoD triple overwrite. I downloaded the ubuntu 12.10 desktop version 64 bit and tried to install it using both a bootable cd and a usb drive. After I turn on the computer and it goes through the bios, I get the "MBR error 1, press any key to boot from floppy"
I tried to use a windows installation cd but I cannot get past this mbr error. It will not boot from CD or USB. Any thoughts? Thanks!
[SOLVED] Installing ubuntu on intel 64 bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2011
I bought a new 64 bit intel i7 processor machine and want to install ubuntu on it. I didn't find a intel specific 64 edition but I googled to find out the amd64 version works just fine. But I also saw discussions about how it is not recommended to install a 64 bit edition as the available binary codes for standard softwares are limited. I have also seen that a 32 bit installation would work just fine on 64 bit machine. is that true? Then why would they even release a 64 bit edition? does it really double my machine's performance?
The state of 64 bit AMD Catalyst drivers and WINE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 31, 2012
I've been using Ubuntu for quite some time now, and also WINE. I have looked high and low, and haven't really found a satisfactory answer to my questions regarding the AMD drivers for x64 Ubuntu and WINE interaction. First, my system specs:
AMD Phenom II 1090T @ 3.6 GHz
16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz @ 8-8-8-24
790 FX Chipset
AMD 6970 2 GB GPU @ stock
750 W OCZ GameStream PSU
Ubuntu 12.10 x64
WINE version - currently 1.5.10 and 1.5.20 with PoL.
22" 16:9 at 1080 res.
Of all the game's I've played under WINE, I don't suspect that any of them have really used the AMD binary fglrx driver. For example, Running left 4 dead 2 under WINE gives me something about 30 fps, regardless of the settings used. My system would rip this game apart on windows, on the order of hundreds of fps. StarCraft II on ultra gives me 16-20 fps, and on all low settings gives me only 25-30 fps. Other games gives similar performance. From what I've been reading, this has som
AMD/ATI Catalyst driver in Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 29, 2011
I just got a new/used computer with an AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card.
I've installed the default driver, and rebooted, but the end result is worse than with no driver. I get around 60fps in glxgears, both with or without the driver, but with the driver the gears move a bit jerky.
The Catalyst control center is there, but doesn't seem to have any features that could help.
I've only used Nvidia cards in the past, but got a good deal on this machine and thought ATI driver support had improved.
Is there any solution to this? Going back to 10.04 LTS? Selling the card and getting an Nvidia? Or some nice config trick I'm missing

Ubuntu 64 bit AMD freezing =[
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2010
AMD Dual core Athlon II
6 Gb DDR2
Nvidia GT 260
Dual boot with windows 7
Two different physical hard drives for each OS
So i figured id intsall 64 bit on my new system to take advantage of the 6 gb of ram. During the install it froze once, restarted and installed again erasing the whole HD for ubuntu. Now everytime i boot into ubuntu, a few minutes after using firefox or even installing updates it completely freezes on me. I can move the mouse but no keyboard keys are recognized and no windows can move, nor open and programs.
Figured id post this before i go back down to 32 bit. I really needed 64 bit for the work that i do on linux, but i guess ill need to find another way to get a 64 bit distro working. Unless someone can help me =]
Is a AMD A63410 MX ready for Ubuntu 64 bit OS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2011
I have a AMD A6-3410 MX processor with a 4 GB RAM. My Windows 7 reports that it can support a 64 bit operating system and cpu-z reports that it supports the "x88-64" instruction set.
I am planning to move to a 64 bit Ubuntu (from my existing 32 bit Ubuntu) to use all of my 4 GB RAM.
Will Ubuntu 64 bit OS go well with this processor?
Ubuntu w/ AMD Athlon P360 64 bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 17, 2011
I am planing on buying a laptop with an AMD Athlon II P360 2x2.30GHz processor. Evidently its 64 bit. How will Ubuntu behave on this processor. I don't have any experience with AMD and 64 bit processors. I saw that there is a special version of Ubuntu for AMD64. It is possible to run normal Ubuntu on this processor, right? Or should I install 64 bit Ubuntu? Will I than be able to run normal programs (Is it backward compatible?)
