To many of you this will sound totally stupid.
I am completely new to Linux. I installed the 64 bit Ubuntu. And then I installed this software called R which I will use to analyse large datasets.
So I used the sudo apt-get etc etc to install R and it installed fine. But how do I find out if I have installed the 32 bit or 64 bit of R? I need the 64 bit version to take advantage of my 12G of RAM.
In Windows, 64 bit OS can run 32 bit executables. Not sure how Linux works.
