It is not possible to install a software which support only 64 bit arch on a 32 bit OS whereas the reverse is true. In order to install a 64 bit software you will need a hardware which support 64 bit and a 64 bit OS running on the top of it. Also I would like to mention that it is not possible to install 64 Bit OS as a Virtual machine on a hardware which ...

You can install 64 bit software on a machine built with 32 bit hardware in the same way you can run say ARM software on an x86 target, using dynamic translation. Basically, a piece of software such as qemu sits in-between the programs and your computer, performing a translation from the AMD64 instruction set to the x86 (probably i686) one (with a very ...

You should be able to run the VM on a 64-bit Ubuntu, as Virtualbox emulates most of the hardware inside the VM, and it shouldn't matter much on what the host OS is.

No. Not natively. You could try using qemu user mode emulation, and binfmt_misc to make it the interpreter for x86_64 ELF binaries.

Yes, for anything that is not already packaged in Ubuntu, or in a PPA that you've added, you will have to manually install all the dependencies needed to compile it. For anything already packaged in Ubuntu, you can run apt-get buld-dep $package and it will install the build dependencies for that package, however, if there are any additional or changed ...

After a lot of searching, this is what I came across: The folder in which all your wine software are installed is known as your WINEPREFIX. By default this folder resides in your home (~) directory by ...

Read about 32 bit (x86) and 64 bit applications: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/32-bit-and-64-bit-explained.htm Sometimes it is possible that an application or single package [one .deb file] act as both after installation. ie, x86 app on x86 OS and x64 app on x64 OS

Yes. Ubuntu has what it calls multi-arch support in it's 64 bit versions. All it means is that the 32 bit and 64 bit libraries exist on the same system in different directories. The software knows how to locate and load the correct version. By default, the 32 bit libraries may not be installed but you're able to do so using apt. "Some high end ...
