I have setup a 64bit Linux (Ubuntu/CentOS).

Can I install now 64bit Eclipse (3.6 or 3.7) and run it successfully?

Or is 32bit Eclipse recommended because more plugins support 32bit?

I don't think that you should face a problem with 64bit Eclipse, at
least in terms of plugin support. (I think the only set of plugins where
32 or 64 bit matters are part of the Eclipse Platform e.g. SWT)

Yes, but you need to make sure that you use a 64-bit JRE.
