Quite obviously, you need to research this answer, for your environment and the particular packages that you. intend to use.   There’s simply no other way to find the reliable for-you answers that you need.

Generally speaking, I would suggest that in a native 64-bit environment, native 64-bit software should be used whenever possible.   However, every scenario is at-least potentially different.   You should therefore identify and enumerate the software packages that you need for this box, and check documentation for each of these.   Every aspect of a production system must be verified in this manner.   I would presume that a 64-bit setup is most likely to be the appropriate one for all hardware of recent vintage.   However ... “Trust, but Verify.™”

    “Trust, but Verify.™”

    That's exactly why I distrust everything you say. Because every time I have verified anything you've said; it has not just been slightly wrong, but rather, substantially wrong.

    Very often so wrong that it seems more like deliberate, malicious misdirection than simple-minded error or dumb misunderstanding. Whatever combination of malignancies drives your continuing need to post always perpetually pointless, usually useless, habitually harmful, and sometimes serious malevolent advice; it does this place harm.

    It seems that most regulars here have seen you for the ignoble, thick-skinned, self-deluding conman that you are; but I wish more of them would challenge you more often; so that the less regular, and new members are less likely to be taken in by the particular brand of meaningless, techno-babble flimflam that is the hallmark of your long con.

    You recently, unjustifiably, told another forum member to "Go away"; I now, with long and strong justification, invite you to do exactly that:

    Go away and do not come back!

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    It’s funny because “trust but verify” is one of the most profoundly stupid things anyone has ever said; at least since, say, “Let them eat cake.”

    The entire and only point—the very definition—of trust is that it requires no verification. Verifying means you did not trust. The Orwellian twists of language we endure are one thing. That some eMbr@Ce®ª¡™ them—nay, glom onto them—is something else, all together.


    Update: fixed the punchline… :P
