I've installed Boinc 64-bit in a 64-bit Ubuntu, but after opening the Boinc Manager and clicking "Help" > "About BOINC Manager", it says after the number of the version "x86" instead of "x64". Why is this?

1. Where did you get this BOINC from, Berkeley or Ubuntu repositories?
2. What is the name of the BOINC installer file (if you have it)?

I'll ask the developer.

However, do know that it won't matter much. The thing actually doing all the managing and such is the BOINC client binary. BOINC Manager is just a GUI, a graphical user interface that allows you to give commands to the client in an easier way. It doesn't need to be 64bit, as it will never be able to use up 4GB of memory or more.
