Ubuntu: How to execute 64bit application on 32bit ubuntu system?


I have downloaded and installed Lubuntu latetest 14.10 32bit and now, after downloading z88 aurora software (only 64bit is available for Linux), so I followed the installation guide, but the software doesn't execute and returns the following message in the terminal:

line 5: ./z88aurora: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error  
  • Maybe someone can help me with this and thanks in advance.


You can't run 64bit application on 32bit Ubuntu. You need a 64bit kernel to run 64bit apps. see here.

The only way is by using VirtualBox, or VMWare Player, providing that you have the required hardware.


You can't do that.

A 32 bit system can only run 32 bit programs. A 64 bit system can run 32 bit and 64 bit programs.

Read also the different between 32 bit and 64 bit.
