Using 64bit and 32bit version interchangeably

Post by gmhafiz » Sun Jul 29, 2007 18:38

What are the differences between Sabayon Linux x86 3.4a and Sabayon Linux x86-64 3.4a? Can I install the 64-bit version on a 32bit computer or 32-bit version on a 64-bit computer :?:

The 64-bit version may run a little faster on a 64-bit computer. You can't run 64-bit on a 32-bit computer. Some programs may not work as well on 64-bit as 32, or may be harder to set up. If you want to try both, you could dual boot and share /home.
