I'm a normal user, not a Linux specialist. So, at this moment, excepting aMule's problem, my Ubuntu installation seems to be stable and I'll go on with it. On the other side my 18.04.2 installation was an automatic migration from 16.04 version. My system is a 32 bits, although the processor is Intel Dual Core. As there isn't a 18.04 version for 32 bits, I'm afraid to try the installation of a 64 bits version and I don't want to co come back to 16.04. Regarding with aMule I'll try Windows only for this application, because I'm loving Linux.
Thank you for your help, Wagscat123.

I can see that - sometimes it's not worth the fight, although if you ever change your mind, VirtualBox is pretty easy to set up.

Ubuntu removed the 64 bit Live install image for 18.04, although there's still an advanced server setup. Although it sounds you're probably not going to need to re-install Ubuntu if you get aMule under Windows, if you do reinstall Ubuntu for some reason, the 64 bit edition would be slightly heavier but probably more well tested than the last few 32 bit versions and safe to install. In 2019, it's the opposite of 2009 - 64 bit is generally more stable and supported now.

Best of luck, and thanks for reaching out to LQ!

amule is working perfectly on my system, i think (i have tried it every now and then over the years and there were never problems with it, however the last time was a while ago).
But i'm not using ubuntu.
