To answer your last question first, x86-64 CPUs (a.k.a. Intel 64, AMD64, x64...; basically any laptop/desktop 64-bit CPU you can get these days) are fully backwards-compatible with 32-bit operating systems and applications. So a 32-bit OS will work on a modern desktop. As to why you should use 64-bit instead, the 64-bit instruction set adds various features ...

Can I be reasonably certain that a 32-bit OS will still work on a modern desktop? Yes. Almost all 64-bit capable processors support both 64 bit mode or 32 bit mode. (Exceptions might be early Itaniums, IBM power CPUs etc, but nothing mainstream.) Assuming that I will not be doing anything memory intensive, is there any other reason why I should use ...

The OpenSuSE install can help you do this by resizing and creating your partitions for you. It should automatically use your swap partition. If not then you'll go to advanced partition settings when installing and have the swap partition be mounted to swap. However, if you want to free do this by hand (I would not recommend it). First umount the /dev/sda2 ...

I will share my hack to get it working on OpenSuse 13.2 with KDE 4.14. 1. Edit the Service Menu: su -c 'vi /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/kmail_addattachmentservicemenu.desktop' 2. Comment out line: #Exec=kmail --attach %F 3. Add the following line: Exec=thunderbird -compose "attachment='file://%F'" 4. Save the file. You may need to ...

Having a proper, guest-friendly hotspot on a Linux machine require at least the following: switch your WiFi card to master (AP) mode - to make your AP secure you need to configure and run hostapd with at least WPA2-PSK auth; make you host a NAT-enabled router, which you can achieve with iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s INPUT_CIDR -o OUTPUT_INTERFACE -j ...

I am assuming that your question is about x86 processor. Here is a compromise solution, that is used on Debian 32 bit. Produce the whole system for 32 bit, but also add some extra kernels: pea-kernel is 32 bit, but can address more than 4GB ( in theory up to 64 GB ) of physical memory, but only 3GB of logical (3GB per process, 1GB is used by kernel). ...
