If you intend to play somewhat modern games on this computer, you need to do at least two things: Download and install a recent 64-bit version of Lubuntu. Currently, this is 16.04 LTS. Anything less than this, and you're asking for trouble. 12.04 was released in April of 2012. Download and install the latest 64-bit version of Steam, either from the ...

64 bit should more compute per cycle because of the wider registers and you have more registers to play with. I've run several compute bound benchmarks (for example lmbench) and compared 32 bit vs 64 bit in terms of throughput and throughput per watt and 64 bit wins in many scenarios. Architecturally, 64 bit just allows the compiler to keep more data in ...

If your hardware arch is 64bit, I would go with 64bit guest OS. This will allow the guest of taking advantage of the 64bit arch where it can - source. There could come a time where you would like to migrate the guest to a host with more ram. Staying with 64bit OS, will allow that to be an easier migration. You have mentioned that you are looking for speed....

i had troubles with Steam installation, i had to create the 32b directory folder with the command "WINEPREFIX="$HOME/prefix32" WINEARCH=win32 wine wineboot" and it actually worked, but when i try to install other apps or games with Wine it gives me the same error msg; "You are using a 64-bit WINEPREFIX.

I've been working on a Xubuntu based distro with a patched kernel integrating Realtek 8723BS WiFi card drivers, and both 32 and 64 bits EFI enabled, among other things. XJUbunTAB Hope you find this useful

Your CPU indeed does not support a 64-bit OS because there is no 64-bit in CPU op-mode(s). If your only concern is that the 32-bit version of Google Chrome is unsupported and you are otherwise perfectly happy with 32-bit Ubuntu, then I suggest using the 32-bit version of Chromium, which is supported.

Here is a little short workaround (not offline) which was done for xubuntu, but is dealing with ubuntu-files with downloading them. Link to duplicate answer is : How do I install my wireless card driver offline

The easiest way to install Ubuntu on a 32-bit UEFI is to: Make a bootable usb from Debian netinstall iso (it supports 32-bit boot) using unetbootin Using unetbootin, overwrite created usb with ubuntu iso. (it's not necessary you will need it, but in my case I had to do this) boot into UEFI shell, select you drive (by entering "fsX:", where X is number of ...

Thanks to all for the various suggestions and recommendations. I considered all and then decided to simply reinstall Windows 10. This supports 64 bit and is what I originally had. Apparently (probably my error) I downloaded the Ubuntu 32bit version which would not work with my configuration. Now I can reinstall and do it right. Once again, many thanks ...

For me it seems as the download was deleted because this browser is not supportet any more from google. Why didn't you try to install chromium? But even you need the download: https://archive.org/download/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb Regards Marcus
