In the next week I’m looking forward to getting a new laptop and I intend to run OpenSuSE 11 64 on it.
As I have never run any 64 bit OS’s previously, asides from 64 bit OS being able to access more than 3Gb of system memory I know very little (by my own admission) about the abilities of a 64 bit OS. :rolleyes:
Is it possible to run a 32 bit application on a 64 bit version of OpenSuSE without any major drama (I presume that it would work via some form of compatibility layer)?
Unfortunately there are some 32 bit apps that I will not be able to get 64 bit versions of. This means I am left with the option of running 32 bit version of OpenSuSE and not be able to access the full 4Gb of memory that I have in the laptop which I would prefer to avoid.
Apologies if this question is a bit silly but I really don’t know.
