I have 64 bit core i5 configuration I have installed ubuntu studio 11.04 (32 bit) on it.It's working fine but for eclipse android development it is not working what should I do? Should I download 64 bit eclipse or first I do have 64 bit studio OS and then install the rest development environment

Just for the benefit of people reading this later, why do you need 64-bit Eclipse? – thomasrutter May 9 '12 at 3:03

No. You can install 32-bit software on an x64 bit machine but you can not install x64 based software on a 32-bit machine.

This rule applies to all Operating Systems.

First, install 64 bit OS. Then go for 64 bit Eclipse. – Curious Apprentice May 9 '12 at 2:46
