Hello,

I can't find the 64bit version of lubuntu iso image on their home page. What does it mean for me?
There is no 64 bit version or I should adjuct the iso image to my need? Or should I install the 32 version
and the system will not use it's full potential so it's better to download Ubuntu for 64 bit system?

thank you for explanation and advice

I assume you did go to: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download ?
I can download 10.10, desktop 64-bit from there.

Or are you looking for another version?

Thank you,

but you overlooked a little detail, the "l" letter in Lubuntu

Darn!

*puts glasses on*

Ok, afaik there is no downloadable iso for the x64 version. You can first install the 64bit mini ISO and after that add lubuntu to it: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/DocumentationHelp/MinimalInstall

How much slower would be the version http://people.ubuntu.com/~gilir/lubuntu-10.10.iso than 64bit version?
Isn't it possible to download directly Lubuntu for 64 bit system?

I will install the system on the computer of some unknown man, so I would like the installation without problems
and downloading some mini ISO and then adding lubuntu seems quite complicated. Could I try it in VirtualBox on my 32bit system if it works without problems?

With normal use it should be a bit faster but not always noticable (an ubuntu example: http://www.tuxradar.com/content/ubuntu-904-32-bit-vs-64-bit-benchmarks).

No, sorry. Not a direct official download, you might want to search the newsgroups and torrents. Should be something there but you never know what you're going to get.

Virtualbox should be able to emulate 64bits on a 32bits machine, so you could give that a try.

Thanks a lot,

I'm installing the 32-bit mini version and I'm glad to know that Lubuntu is only installing some more packages.
I'm also glad to know that the performance does not differ much if they don't play 3D games, so I will install them
the 32 bit version (it will be faster).
