Re: [opensuse] Can I ask something...?
Carlos E. R. said the following on 10/30/2011 10:10 AM:

A 64 bits procesor is not faster in 64 bit mode than in 32 bits
mode - it just "can" move more data simultaneously. It is like
having a train moving with one wagon or two, at the same speed.

But you do not have that much ram.

Its arguable that in many situations a 64-but machine with a 64-bit
bus will run faster in 32-but mode for a variety of reasons, not least
of all being that the programs are smaller :-) :-) :-)

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth, more than ruin,
more even than death. . . . Thought is subversive and revolutionary,
destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege,
established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into
the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and
free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.
-- Bertrand Russell
