So, I've been trying to learn as much as I can about linux operating systems, and something is currently confusing me.
Linux L655 3.5.0-27-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Mon Mar 25 19:58:17 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Okay, so my system is x86_64, which means it is 32bit, correct? So, since it is 32 bit I can only install 32 bit programs. My confusion is over the fact when I was installing the google talk plugin, the i386 .deb didn't work and the amd64 did. Why?
Also, if I install a program with dkpg, will my other package managers (synaptic, software center, ect) know about it?
