2.4. Ubuntu

This section describes how to install Mroonga related deb packages on Ubuntu. You can install them by apt.

We distribute both 32-bit and 64-bit packages but we strongly recommend a 64-bit package for server. You should use a 32-bit package just only for tests or development. You will encounter an out of memory error with a 32-bit package even if you just process medium size data.
