question on 32 vs 64 bit

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, I'm running Slackware version 13 and will upgrade to 13.1. I have to decide whether to run in 32 bit or 64 bit mode. My first priority is stability and ease of installing new software. I assume I'll be able to run either version immediately after installation. I'm a little worried about adding software not on the DVD. The questions are: 1. Does every package from Slackbuild come in both 32 and 64 bit versions? 2. Do many or most other software that I may want (like a driver for Nvidia ) come in 32 and 64 bit versions. Thanks i (HowTos)
