I'm running 32-bit mode, I've never ventured into 64-bit OS territory 
yet. Maybe one day :-)

On my previous install (pre-October 2011), I think I once tried building 
EQ10Q from source when it first came out and struggled and I think I 
might have built IR and possibly the LV2 versions of the SWH ones. But 
this time around I'm pretty certain all the plugins I'm using are from 
the Ubuntu Studio repositories.

I expect I probably could build them from source, I've just never 
bothered to because I've always managed to find them in a repo somewhere.
