Re: Best approach for a system that needs desktop apps and 64bit address space

Which Nvidia drivers are you speaking of? Graphics or Nforce ethernet, etc?

I have had no problem compiling and using Nvidia graphics on my 64 bit dual opteron system at work (Suse).

nVidia and IPTables don't work properly with the "Install an ia32 system

IPTables is not a problem here, I believe. However, doing without
nVidia proprietary drivers  is a no-go

What exactly do you plan on doing with all that memory? 32-bit apps
can't (well, not really, earlier arguments on the mailing list
withstanding) use all the memory, so the apps planning on using all that
RAM would need to be 64bit

Simulation stuff. Some of the apps are 64, some 32, the desktop stuff
should run with all the bells and whistles.
