So I'm running a 32bit ubuntu with 2GB ram.
I'm thinking of upgrading the ram to 16GB and enabling PAE to give the guest OS on vmware extra memory.
Does this mean I'll have to switch to 64bit so that the vmware can run on 64bit (and hence have extra memory), or will vmware on 32bit be able to give its guest OSes the required memory?
I mean, it seems possible to give more memory than 4GB currently, but it says that swapping may occur. The question is, would vmware running on 32bit resort to swapping when it gets beyond 4GB no matter what?
