You can install both 32 bit and 64 bit binaries on Linux 64 bit machine.
To see it after your installation, you can easily check with "file" command.

 

If you see like this, you installed 64 bit binaries.


# file /opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/seosd
/opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/seosd: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, stripped

 

If you see like this, you installed 32 bit binaries.


# file /opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/seosd
/opt/CA/AccessControl/bin/seosd: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, stripped
