I accidently installed 32 bit opensuse on several machines.
Is there an easy way to switch to 64bit? such as adding 86_64 repos
and zypper --dup --allow-architecture-change (unfortunately this
option doesn't exist)?
Any hints?
A notice in the setup, that a 32bit os is going to be installed on a
64bit system would be very nice...

:-) It might be intentional. 32bit apps use less memory, if you run a
lot of them, there's more room with a 32bit os.

just a little warning "are you sure..." not something looking fatal.. lack of this took me hours..

btw. now trying to install on raid using a local disk and a iscsi disk.. would give a try for AOE, but that seems not to be implemented very much..
