    Does Linuxmint 12 only come with a 32-bit version of Virtualbox?


    Hello Fellows,

    Please correct me if I am wrong, in Synaptic package manager I only see a 32-bit version of Virtualbox in Linuxmint 12.

    If I install the 32-bit version will I be able to run 64-bit operating systems in it?

    How can I install the 64-bit version?


    Respectfully,

    Hello Rokytnji,

    I am not sure if I should edit the old post or create this new one.

    aroldgre@Mintdesktop ~ $ cat /etc/issue
    Linux Mint 12 Lisa \n \l

    It looks like you are running 32 bit Mint. That is why your package manager shows 32 bit packages.

    The 64 bit version of Mint 12 has not yet been released. I am running the 32 bit version within 64bit Windows 7 right now (as a trial).
