My current fink installation is a 32bit system, built on a 64bit capable
machine, that was running in 32bit mode.
Is it possible to update or install packages if the machine is running
in 64bit mode?
The currently (32bit) installed packages (dx, gnuplot, inkscape,
pari-gp, octave, udav, etc) run fine in 64bit mode.
All the best, and thanks

Your Fink installation is _supposed_ to work independently of whether
you're using a 32-bit or 64-bit kernel, so you should be able to update
That being said, some packages try to use the running kernel setting to
figure out what architecture to build for. This is not what we want, so
please let us know if anything comes up--you should get an error if you
encounter a package that has missed being checked.
