Ubuntu Installation :: Version 9.10 - 32bit Versus 64bit

Apr 5, 2010

I demo'd 9.10 32 bit and got my wlan woking using ndiswrapper. Then, I decided to install the 64 bit version and I cannot get my driver to work. Can't find a 64 bit driver for my D-link DWA-130 USB adapter. What is the easiest way to uninstall 9.10 so I can install the 32 bit version? Is it as simple as reformatting the ubuntu partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: 64bit Use More RAM Than 32bit?

Apr 30, 2010

I have downloaded the 64bit version of Ubuntu 10.04. I am currently using 8.10 32bit and I want to clean install 10.04 64bit version. However the one thing that is putting me off is that I have heard if your PC has 1GB of RAM or less then 64bit won't run very good because it uses more RAM than 32bit. (my PC has 1GB) So the question is: Does 64bit use more RAM than 32bit?

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrating From 32bit To 64bit?

Mar 15, 2010

Ive been using Ubuntu 32bit on my work Dell E6400 for nearly a year now with no problems. It is capable of running Ubuntu 64bit and Ive tried out the live CD which seems ok. I have a spare 40GB HDD and a USB caddy so Id like to install Ubuntu 64bit onto that and start working with that as a trial. Once im happy I can get all the usual things I need for my work (like vpnc) working then I'll wipe the main internal HDD and install Ubuntu 64bit.

Apart from backing up my home directory, id like to backup a list of my installed packages as a list of reference so I know what to add into my new install. Is there a "apt" command to do this and list the packages in a way where if I install those packages, I'll not hit any dependancy problems by installing one before another?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Songbird In 10.04 Lucid 32bit And 64bit

Apr 30, 2010

I've been having problems with the Songbird client that we normally download from repositories. It is slow, unstable, and crashes a lot. So I finally figured out that if you download the latest developer version, it is fast, stable, and hasnt crashed yet! The only downside is not all plugins are compatible, but it is still awesome to use, its my favorite audio player in Ubuntu. [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading From Lucid 32bit To 64bit

Jul 21, 2010

I am going to upgrade from Lucid 32-bit to Lucid 64-bit, and I have some questions as to what I need to do. My system is a dual boot of XP and Lucid, but I only use XP rarely nowadays. I know I have to do a clean install, so here goes. Do I have to blow away my current install of Lucid? If the answer to (1) is yes, what about Grub? How do I get a list of my currently installed applications?

Currently Lucid is on one partition. I have a Clonezilla copy of the file system. Can I restore the /home directory from that copy once I have installed the 64-bit system? If I decide to make /home a separate partition, are there any good rules of thumb about how much space to allocate to the various partitions? Are there any other directories or files I should consider copying from the Clonezilla copy?

Ubuntu :: How To Install 32bit Libsasl2 On 64bit Lucid

Jul 23, 2010

The current libsasl package on 64bit Lucid is libsasl2-2 (2.1.23). However when I was installing Scalix, it needed 32bit libsasl2 which is 2.1.22 or something old. Although I can download 32bit libsasl2 package from web, it requires a lot of other libs and some of them are not available.So my question is: is it possible to install an old 32bit package on Lucid 64bit? Or are there other ways to solve the problem without installation of new packages?

Ubuntu Installation :: Running 32bit 10.10 On A 64bit Machine?

Dec 29, 2010

I'm currently running 32 bit Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Apparently, my computer can support 64bit OS. My / and /home partitions are separated and exist on different physical hard drives. Is it possible to just install 64bit ubuntu over my 32bit existing installation? Could I preserve the customizations I've made? what about application settings like chrome, firefox, compiz, etc.? Would I have to meticulously reinstall all of the little things I've done to my ubuntu installation?

General :: Cannot Boot With 32bit Ubuntu On 64bit System

Oct 7, 2010

My printer wont work on 64bit ubuntu, no drivers. Just for 32bit so I don't know all the technical stuff to get it to work if there was a way to, but anyways. I tried to run ubuntu 32bit and I have a lot of boot problems. Sometimes it will boot but most of the time it wont. I have to hard reboot every time 6 or 7 times just to get it to boot. I was wondering what could be the problem. For some reason I was thinking maybe it was my hard drive being to large (1.5 terabyte) its been a while since I've tried but I don't remember there being any error messages just a black screen. I've waited up to around 5 hours for one boot so I know I am giving it enough time. Is there a fix to make 32bit ubuntu use a large hard drive like that. I know there is one for the ram but I love ubuntu and would like to have a stable system and use my printer at the same time.
