As all the packages would be 32 bit you could either reinstall or set up
a dual boot with the 64bit version (as I do).
The 64 bit version is slower than the 32 bit version on my amd64 and it
does not have flash or compile Gambas2 code properly.
So unless you need access to more than 4GB of ram why bother changing it?
