64-bit Ubuntu

  • Ubuntu Linux finally defaults to 64-bit

    Start64!I still remember buying my first 64-bit processor -- the AMD Athlon 64 3200+. I bought it a decade ago for a system built in 2003. At the time, home computers were still mostly using 32-bit processors and running 32-bit software. However, one of my favorite Linux distributions, Ubuntu, has been offering 64-bit versions since 2004 with the Warty Warthog release.

  • Canonical Might Recommend 64-bit Ubuntu 13.10 Instead of 32-bit

    Start64!Canonical is now offering the 32-bit of its Ubuntu operating system, either the LTS or the regular one, as default, but this might change soon.

  • Stand alone Utorrent Server x64 (64bit) on Linux without system dependecies

    Start64!Utorrent has released a 64 bit build for Linux platforms (see details here). The release is built on Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS). The problem is that if you try to run it on a distribution like RHEL/CentOS or any older distribution with old libraries, it will fail because of the newer dependencies like glibc 2.14 and libssl 1.0.0 etc.

  • Ubuntu 13.10 32-bit vs. 64-bit Performance

    Start64!While 64-bit Linux desktop support has been in good shape for years, it seems there's a surprising number of Intel/AMD Linux desktop users undecided whether to use the 32-bit or 64-bit installation images of their favorite Linux distribution. For the latest perspective on 32-bit versus 64-bit Linux performance, here are said benchmarks from the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development state.

  • WattOS R7 x64 Linux Distro Review

    Start64!Review of WattOS R7, an extremally lightweight Distro based on Ubuntu. Its slightly lighter than Lubuntu, perhaps being able to run on systems with as little as 128MB RAM, which it more ideal for older systems.

  • 32-bit vs. 64-bit Ubuntu 13.04 Linux Performance

    Start64!While nearly all modern Intel/AMD x86 hardware is 64-bit capable, among novice Linux users the question commonly is whether to install the 32-bit or 64-bit version of a given distribution. We have previously delivered benchmarks showing Ubuntu 32-bit vs. 64-bit performance while in this article is an updated look in seeing how the 32-bit versus 64-bit binary performance compares when running Ubuntu 13.04 with the Linux 3.8 kernel.

  • Intel Linux Graphics Installer Fixed For Ubuntu 64bit

    Start64!About a month ago, Intel released a tool that allows Linux users to easily upgrade to the latest Intel graphics drivers. The tool comes with a repository used for the driver updates and it's available for Ubuntu (12.10 and 12.04) and Fedora (17 and 18). The repository had some multi-arch issues on Ubuntu 64bit, but they seem to have been fixed, at least according to my test.

  • Steam Hardware Survey Now Shows All Linux OSes, Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit Is in the Lead

    Start64!Valve performs a hardware survey each month and the results are published online. The last hardware survey revealed all the Linux operating systems that used Steam, and not just the official one, Ubuntu.

  • 64-bit ARM Version Of Ubuntu/Debian Is Booting

    Start64!The 64-bit ARM (AArch64) port image of Debian/Ubuntu has surfaced. Debian-based Linux is now ready to play in a 64-bit ARM world, months ahead of any hardware appearing for the general public. Similar to x86_64, Linux is the first operating system ready for the new architecture.

  • Linux x64 Assembly Tutorial 1: Getting a Value from NASM into G++

    Start64!This tutorial is a remake of the first Windows C++ and ASM tutorial only I'm using Ubuntu. I'm in Ubuntu 12.10 here with G++ and NASM. For a text editor I'm a big fan of the ultra minimalist Nano. We'll probably have to shift to something a little heavier weight eventually.

  • Linux Mint 14 RC 64-bit Doesn't Run 32-bit Applications

    Start64!The first release candidate for Linux Mint 14 was announced yesterday, but it seems that the distribution has a problem with 32-bit applications. The Linux Mint developers have issued a note stating that the 32-bit support is not included the Linux Mint 14 RC.

  • Ubuntu 12.10: 32-bit vs. 64-bit Linux Performance

    Start64!In past years on Phoronix there has been no shortage of 32-bit vs. 64-bit Linux benchmarks. Assuming you don't have a limited amount of RAM and under memory pressure, 64-bit distributions tend to be much faster than the 32-bit versions. However, some Linux users still often wonder whether they should use the 32-bit or 64-bit version of their distribution even when on 64-bit hardware. So with that said, here's some more 32-bit vs. 64-bit benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.10 with the Linux 3.5 kernel.

  • Intel OpenGL Performance: OS X vs. Windows vs. Linux - The 64-bit (x86_64) version of each operating system was used

    Start64!As mentioned last week when publishing the OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu Linux benchmarks, a large Intel OpenGL driver performance comparison was being carried out at Phoronix. The comparison is now compete and here are the results when comparing the Intel HD OpenGL graphics performance under Apple OS X 10.8, Microsoft Windows 7 Pro, and Ubuntu Linux 12.04/12.10. The results of this Intel OpenGL gaming performance comparison are quite interesting, but reveal some troubling Linux facts.

  • Skype and Teamviewer install on 64 bit Xubuntu 12.04 LTS

    Start64!Console install of Skype 4.0 and Teamviewer 7 on a 64 bit install of Xubuntu 12.04 LTS. At time of publication this is a valid install method for Ubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu (no warrenties given or implied). This install method should be valid for 32 bit versions of the applications, just download the propper 32 bit versions ;-)

  • What's new in Linux 3.4

    Start64!The new version sees a number of important changes affecting graphics drivers. The x32-ABI promises the advantages of x86-64-CPUs without the overhead of 64-bit code. Btrfs is reported to be quicker, and Yama prevents processes from accessing each other's allocated memory.

  • Compiling OpenJDK 7 with Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

    Start64!When Sun Microsystems was still the head of Java, the wise decision to OpenSource it was made. (Thank you, whoever was behind it…) OpenJDK as of today can be built without any binary plugs, so it can be considered as really OpenSource and free. To exercise the liberty of building your own, runnable Java it takes amazingly low effort – that is the topic if this short blog entry.
