from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS

Posted 06-19-2010 at 08:57 AM by ionraedt

I am working with Ubuntu for quite a while (now 10.4 / 32bit).
As I have a 64-bit processor, I'd like to try a 64 OS.

You find enough meanings on the net about "why" and "why not" to change over to an 64-bit OS.
However, you don't find a lot about HOW to do it preserving as much as applications, settings and data from the old 32-bit system.
In short, what is the best way to upgrade your OS to 64-bit ??

Any comments are welcome...

Today I logged in to a freshly installed, rather than upgraded, Lucid system running in VirtualBox, and was greeted with an error...

As we all know, the new ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx is now available for download . It is a very nice operating system, I posted earlier a Quick-Review on Ubuntu, you can check it out and see what's new and cool about the new Ubuntu.
