My short answer is: likely because the BIOS designer was sloppy. The long anwser is: Although you have 4GB RAM installed, you can not expect to have 4GB of usable RAM available with the Intel 945GM chipset. This is a chipset limitation. You can tell this from the chipset's specification: ...

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, ...

To get it to work, I followed karel's instructions: Downloaded g77 from Ziddu, link on karel's comment.

At the time of the question, PHP 5.5.25's package was broken on the repository.

The error is related to Keyboard/Touchpad controller(i8042). Since kernel version 2.6.31, the script that was used to unbind the devices on suspend and rebind them on resume does not work. According to this link, the system uses ACPIPnP / PnPBIOS to discover KBD/AUX controllers and hence the error message. You can use the following workaround to get rid of ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

The package for libbz2.so.1 is libbz2-1.0.

The problem appears to only happen with the i386 version of Google Chrome on a 64-bit Ubuntu system. The hint that it was a 32-bit vs 64-bit problem was that installing the :i386 version of certain packages made some errors go away. I was able to get Chrome working again by installing the 64-bit version: $ sudo aptitude install google-chrome-stable 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 !!

After a bit more searching, I found the answer was the MySQL setup. In the /etc/mysql/my.cnf, MySQL was only listening on port 3306 for local traffic. This was fixed by removing the line bind-address = 127.0.0.1 in the my.cnf file.

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.

for those who tried all the above but are still struggling (like I was)! The problem might only be the server you use for your ubuntu update (it was in my case).

Yes they are some risk. You should first read this post : How to remove all i386 packages from Ubuntu 64bit? As Henk say, if they are not in your way, I would leave them where they are.

Your question can not be answered with absolute certainty. Have you installed Steam and/or Skype? Then you should watch out. These programs use 32-bit libraries. Your list contains only packages that have been installed by the package manager. Make much broken, you can not. Libraries can be installed again. Apart from, your list itself contains nothing ...

Just download win32 disk imager and install and then select the usb name(before that format the usb as fat32 or any other availible then ntfs) and burn the .iso or image file to the usb. It is simple and effective.

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 ...

Having very similar system specs (P5G41M, E5300, 4GB RAM, 1GB GT610 card, 25GB swap partition) I have found that, especially when used for gaming, the 32-bit version of Ubuntu 15.04 runs a bit smoother than the 64-bit, but this is just based on personal observation. When it comes to updates and drive space, yes, the less you clutter up your hard drive the ...

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 ...

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.

I made the assumption that there are no other dependency needed other than the gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad package. However, I was stupid, and I was wrong. Running $ sudo apt-get install ladspa-sdk cmt $ rm -fv ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry* would solve the problem. Now gst-inspect-0.10 | grep gate gives ladspa: ladspa-hard-gate: Hard Gate
