Howdy, Is it possible to upgrade to 64 from 32 bit through the web interface or must a new 64 bit iso be uploaded as a new install ? 

Thanks, Rob

The short answer is to do a new install.

I have read that it is doable but a pain for someone with Linux skills. Thus, not possible to use web interface and it is much easier to do new install.

Silly question, but why are you using a 32 bit instance on hardware which is 64 bit capable???

Cheers, was struggling to load 64 bit Iso on old jetway board. loaded 32 but probably only worked because i'd eventually figured out the confusing bios stetting to enable usb priority Tongue . Interestingly I'm using it as a roon bridge, thought it only was possible with 64 bit. I'm clearly still on my training wheels but enthusiastically embracing the whole computer upsampling idea. Hope to use HQPlayer to see what all the fuss is about. On that issue, I've been following the server build on Computeraudiophile site advocating passively cooled dual motherboard setup. if noise wasn't an issue and control computer could be housed outside music room, why wouldn't one use a grunty air, water cooled comp to do the heavy lifting? Like I say, still on training wheels here.

HQPlayer requires 20.04. Will need to wait for new 1.2 release, due in next few months. I am looking to try as well.

There's not going to be any 32 bit Ubuntu moving forward. So it's a good idea to upgrade. Jumping on to the alpha/beta train now will be a good thing :)

Dropping 32 bit system is good development wise so it saves me time. There was a time when I think 32 bit OS sound better than 64 bit, but I honestly can't tell the difference in the last few years. Perhaps I'm getting older, perhaps 64 bit systems have picked up SQ. Can't really tell.

I'm glad to move to only 1 single intel system for my testing/audition now.

So long story short, Intel 32 bit will be dropped going forward from 1.2.0.

Thanks, All sorted 64 bit now. Just struggling to get native DSD working. Will persevere  Big Grin
