    Down fall from 32bit or 64bit

    I am currently running 64bit 8.10 on my Pangolin Performance and I want to run things like Boxee and stream videos from ninjavideo.net

    Both require a 32bit system. ninjavideo needing the Java-6 web plugin and IcedTea won't do and Boxee only available in a 32bit flavor.

    My question is this, are there any downfalls with running a 32bit environment with 64bit hardware?

    I used to do it on one of my desktops because the wireless card vendor didnt have a 64bit driver.

    So will I see any drastic performance drops?

    you should be able to force install those apps and installing lib32 libraries. Check the forums in the x64bit section
