And what about the GCC 64 bit compiler ? I need to install it before or after I install netbeans ? And how do I set the GCC 64 bit compiler to be the default compiler in netbeans ? –  wantToLearn Oct 23 '12 at 21:34

The whole "64bit" thing is a red herring. By default gcc will run in 64bit mode if you're running in a 64bit environment.
