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.

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 ...

Look inside the bin folder of the pycharm folder you extracted. There are files called pycharm64.vmoptions and pycharm.vmoptions. Inside them, you can delete the line with the culprit option of MaxPermSize=350m.

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 ...

If you only have 4GB of ram, then 64 bit won't do any good for performance. If you plan on upgrading the ram, you might want 64 bit, but if you're not going to upgrade in the nearish future, I wouldn't bother with it. Also, for an install, I prefer an actual DVD install disk. I find them more reliable than USB drives, since more machines can boot off a ...

UNetBootin has become less and less reliable. Use dd from the command line to create an USB bootable drive. (warning: follow the instructions correctly, not doing so may result in a loss of data) Plug in your USB stick. It will get erased, so make sure there are no important files on it. Display all drives: df -h Look for /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc. The size ...

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, ...

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 ...

Powering off a running Ubuntu (or Windows or any PC) with the power switch or reset button can often lead to corrupted filesystems, OS's, and data loss, it's a terrible habit. On Linux you can often use the "Magic SysRq" codes, like REISUB, to have the kernel more safely reboot a misbehaving system. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key ...

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 ...
