Summary: If your CPU is an old 32bit processor, you have to install a 32bit system. It may be capable of PAE, then it's no problem to use the full amount of the available 4GiB RAM. If you have a 64bit CPU, you can decide which OS architecture you want to use. both 32bit and 64bit will work. Depending on your RAM configuration, you get the best performance ...

Run the following command to see if your CPU can work in 64-bit mode: lscpu | grep "CPU op" if you see 32-bit, 64-bit in the output, it means you will be able to 'install' 64-bit Ubuntu. Now, this might not leverage all the goodness of a 'pure' 64-bit machine, but this is an option for you if your CPU supports this. I have a 32-bit laptop and in the ...

If you have 4GB of ram then you have 64bit CPU or Physical Address Extensions. 4GB + all of the memory-mapped io, is more than a 32 bit can handle. Your choices: Use 32bit system: Can't use all of ram (approximately 3GB but can vary, it depends on what other hardware the system has). 3GB total mapped memory per process. Use 32bit-pae kernel: Can use all ...

If you have a 32-bit CPU, then you have no options. Only a 32-bit OS can be installed. Ubuntu is shipped with pae-enabled kernels. Up to 64 GB of RAM can be used. But not more than 4 GB per process.

First you should know this is not a weired action, this is totally right and you some how asking for this action!! So why this happens? You want to install libgirepository-1.0-1:i386 , but you already have this libgirepository-1.0-1 64 bit version, so here the system is asking you to replace the 64bit with this 32bit. This replace has some consequences, ...

Outside of certain ARM environments, purely 32-bit Desktops are obsolete. The standard CPU in computers of the last five or six years is primarily 64-bit architecture. As such, it is relatively safe to assume that your processor isn't restricted to a 32-bit environment. With the various improvements in processing power between 32bit and 64bit, it makes ...

The package for libbz2.so.1 is libbz2-1.0. You can check this with the command: apt-file search libbz2.so.1 Sample output: % apt-file search libbz2.so.1 libbz2-1.0: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libbz2.so.1 libbz2-1.0: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libbz2.so.1.0 libbz2-1.0: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libbz2.so.1.0.4 Therefore install the package for 32-bit with the ...

All you have to do is, Browse the PlayonLinux's Virtual Drives. Go to the WINEPREFIX/drive_c/ folder and look for Program Files folder. If you only see the Program Files and no ProgramFiles(x86) Then you are using 32 bit Wine Prefix. If you see both then you are using 64 Bit Wine Prefix. Hope this helps !!

You can create a shortcut that runs the command sage -n or sage -notebook.

To my best of knowledge, 32-bit version is not available. Also, 32-bit or not, it can not be directly installed on a PC. You must use the virtualization tools. Even if you download the snappy images there is no way to install them directly to PC/liveCD/USB etc.

In general, if you have enough RAM, 64-bit is preferred. But in some cases it is not true. For instance, I have an old laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5450. It supports 64-bit operations. But it appeared that not very well. 32-bit systems run much better with this CPU. Technical details why this happens may be found in the net. But this is applicable only ...

First of all 64-bit is not like 32-bit at all: The 64-bit version is faster and reads all the existing RAM in your computer, ensuring you can use it all. The 32-bit version is not as fast. It reads only up to 3.2 GB of RAM in your computer. So even if you have more it won't be used. What is difference between 32 bit and 64 bit About why your PC runs ...

64bit is typically faster but does use slightly more RAM. If you are running into a situation where 64bit addressing is using up all your RAM, that could be an argument for using 32bit. That said, 4GB of RAM is plenty for a typical desktop. Therefore the issue you are seeing is likely nothing to do with the architecture and probably something else (a wonky ...

The source code of 64 bit OS will only differ to support the 64 bit architecture and any extra features required by it. Everything else(including the GUI) should essentially be the same. These changes are back-end changes and will not be visible to you in the GUI. The only difference they make is in performance and RAM usage. The reasons why you find ...

Note: As of right now, Ubuntu 15.04 will BOOT on a bay trail tablet, but it will not install correctly. My guide is based mostly on this one, but with minor adjustments, and easier to follow instructions. This guide is tested and working on the Winbook Tw100 Windows 8 tablet (by Microcenter). You may require: USB OTG (on the go) cable, for connecting the ...
