32 bits version distros running 64 bits CPU
 
Hi people,

Look, i would like to know if there are some distros that, being for 32 bits proccessor, can be installed and working fine on a 64 bits machine. (AMD64 my case) Besides FC5 which i know has this characteristic.

What do i want this for? Well, simple, there are not as many aplications for 64 bits as for 32 bits out there. Macromedia Flash for example.. problems with plugins and stuff with firefox, some Graphics drivers.. and some other things, so having everything under 32 bits i think would beeeee..... "FINE"

So, thanks in advance for your help...

Yes, all of them.

Problems with Firefox and graphics drivers? I'm a little doubtful with that comment.

And what's the point of owninga a 64bit processor and not using it?

Not sure why u even posted. You already know the issue with 32 and 64 systems. I grant u permission to install whatever u want.
