Nice. Please do it and report here. I'm sure it works, at least it should this way. If you will experience show stoppers, they have to get solved.
If your system gets unusable, just do the procedure again and have a look at "not higher" new version numbers of packets than before, or inspect "rpm -qa --last" for the oldest packages and update them.
Now that I think, I have some programs in that install that will fail if I upgrade to x64, because they were compiled a few years ago, and no longer compile, because the gcc compiler got a lot more finicky with the warnings it would accept. It has been impossible to recompile for a long time now, so I kept using the old binary. They are programs not actively developed (for Fidonet: Golded+ and some more).
I might have to use those inside a vmware client running an older suse version. Or is it possible to run 32 bits apps in an x64 oS?
