Ubuntu Installation :: Switch From I686 To Amd64?

Jan 18, 2010

when 8.04 came out, i installed the i686 kernel because amd64 support still wasn't that good. i still have that 8.04 install running (it is my mythtv htpc box), but when 10.04 comes out in a few months, i would like to upgrade ubuntu from 8.04 i686 to 10.04 amd64.is a apt-get dist-upgrade from a i686 to a amd64 kernel possible? if so, how?

Fedora :: Switch From The I686 Kernel To I386 Without Reinstalling The System?

Aug 2, 2011

One of our F14 machines was originally set-up with the i386 Kernel. I found out it had a kernel crash and the person tried to fix it by reinstalling the kernel, unfortunately they installed i686. Now some of our software that was setup to work with i386 is not cooperating. Is there a way to switch from the i686 kernel to i386 without reinstalling the system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Canon MX Printer Installation On Kubuntu Lucid 10.04 AMD64

May 20, 2010

Canon MX320, MX330, MX860 printer installation on Kubuntu Lucid 10.04 AMD64 bit. I am sure Ubuntu Lucid is similar. Once I upgraded to Lucid 10.04 AMD64 bit I found that getting a Canon Pixma MX printer installed was not going to be easy. So I thought it help others if I posted my experience here. To pull this off you will need both the Debian package, (.deb), and the source package from either

Canon Europe: [URL]... Or Canon Australia: [URL]... NOTE: The only reason to get the source is to access the ppd files. They are in the Debian package but it is a lot more work to walk newbies through unpacking the .deb. Since there are errors in the source code it makes impossible to compile a driver. Therefore, you will need to install the 32bit Debian package and force the architecture, then add the correct printer driver from the ppd file in the source package. While these instructions worked for me there are a few assumption I make which mat affect your outcome. My MX860 has a wireless network connection.

In other words I have no idea if this will or will not work on a USB attached printer. (If someone would be kind enough to post back if they get that configuration working that would be cool.) The other assumption is that the general reader is relatively new to Lunix and the command line interface. The commands were cut and pasted from my working kconsole, so they should work for anyone.Here we go:........

Debian Installation :: I686 Available In Latest Images?

Aug 16, 2010

The Debian site says latest netinst images have i686 available. I only see i386, so does debian offer the i686 option during net install? Perhaps I won't see a difference between i386 and i686. 1.00 Ghz Pentium M on IBM thinkpad X40 with intel integrated graphics card

Slackware :: 64-current Installation Detects I686

Nov 18, 2010

I am trying to install Slackware64-current into a virtual image. The hardware is 64bit and the host system is Slackware-13.1 (32-bit).


The installation DVD iso starts to boot and then says


This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU

It says this no matter what variable I use for -cpu

Any ideas how I can modify the command to allow Slackware64-current to install in a 32-bit kvm-qemu image running on 64-bit hardware.

Ubuntu Installation :: AMD64 X2 Still Supported?

Jan 18, 2010

I've played with a couple of different versions on both Intel & AMD processors in the past (never totally successful) & all the versions I've played with in the past had separate downloads for i386 & AMD. I thought I'd try again with 9.10. When I started to download this morning, I only saw a version for x86 32bit & 64bit. What should I use for an AMD Athlon x2? Have Intel & AMD been rolled into x86?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 RC Amd64 Won't Install From Usb

Oct 6, 2010

I cant resist till Sunday without OS, so I decided to give it a try with 10.10 RC.I installed it on my USB, since my DVD drive is kinda faulty sometimes.I used the 10.10 RC desktop amd64, installed on the USB through Unetbootin 4.90, started Live and works flawlessly.I checked to be sure there were no defects, there aren't.But when I went to install it, either directly from the boot option or double-clicking the icon in the desktop, it check whether is plugged etc., I click next and just looks like is loading for an infinite times.This happen both if I connect to the Internet or not, if I choose to install updates or not and the mp3 codec or not.Once i left it there for 90 minutes and nothing change it.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Kernel Installation With I386/i686 Configuration Set

Jul 24, 2009

I'm currently using FC 9 - 2.6.27 x86_64. (In my Hp - nx6320 laptop with- Intel centrino Duo processor). I have downloaded linux- How do I install this with i386/i686 configuration set. All that I want is a 32 bit - linux-2.6.30, because NCTUns 5.0 works only with the 32-bit kernel. I have tried following:

make ARCH=i386 menuconfig
After this, I see the architecture set to "X86_32 = Y" in the .config file. But later, after I run

make bzImage
The configuration restarts asking to select Y/N for various packages and modules. I have no much idea on what to select and what not to, in order to retain X86_32 set. I end up with the new .config file with contents as below after the make bzImage command.

#X86_32 is not set
X86_64 = y
Again it is going to be built as a X86_64 bit kernel.

How to install the kernel as 32-bit along with the existing FC-9 64 bit kernel.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Amd64 Installation Freeze?

May 31, 2011

I have recently added a couple of HDDs to my system and wanted to try 11.04 on one, so installed on my smallest empty hard drive. The installation went fine, but upon booting to that drive the system froze at the 'Verifying DMI pool data' screen, and didn't boot. I thought it could have been that drive, so I tried installing on my 500gb drive which had 10.10 running on it. After backing up files etc., I tried a fresh install of 11.04 on this drive, but with the same result, same freeze at the same screen.

During this process I noticed that the Live USB I am using has been quite glitchy (eg. selecting a menu option and it hangs for about a minute before any action), which makes me suspect that it could be the image I'm using. I've downloaded it a couple of times just in case it was a bad image (has happened to me before), but that hasn't fixed it. Both times I used the image in the Internode mirror repository, [URL]...

Ubuntu Installation :: Converting I386 To Amd64?

Feb 18, 2010

I recently upgraded my hardware and installed 32-bit Karmic (well really Mint 8 ) before realizing I would probably have gotten better performance from the amd64 architecture. Is it possible to convert an i386 system to amd64? Is it a good idea? Will there be a lot of problems afterwards? Is it easier to just backup home and etc, install a clean 64-bit system, then restore settings from backup? If I do convert the system, how do I do it? I thought I might be able to just install a different kernel but I can't find an amd64 kernel in the repositories..

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD For AMD64 Lucid (10.04)?

Jun 4, 2010

First, the official download page is 32k download. I've NEVER had that slow of a speed before. I've downloaded and used Ubuntu since Drake. The only desktop iso for AMD64 is 698k (Official download).

I've downloaded that image for AMD64 10.04 from two download locations and burned the CD. When I boot, I only get the install option in a non-graphical environment. No LiveCD button.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1 Amd64 On A 2 TB Hard Drive

Oct 1, 2010

I want to install Ubuntu 10.04.1 AMD64 on a new Athlon II X4 635 with 4 GB RAM. At first, I had a working installation using the alternate installer from a USB stick, using a 500 GB disk with encrypted LVM. Then I wanted to use a 2 TB disk instead, but after installing exactly the way I did before, the system didn't boot. After letting me enter the encryption key, the boot process didn't continue. Switching to text mode revealed that the kernel went into a kernel panic, after some message I interpreted as a problem locating some device (stupidly, I forgot to write it down).

Next thing I tried was an installation using an older 10.4 x86 alternate install CD, without encryption and using only a 20 GB LVM. Installation took a lot longer than I would have expected (don't know how long exactly, but at least 1.5 hours), but at least it went through and worked afterwards. So it seems it's either the installation from USB, or amd64, or the encryption, or the LVM or partition size - or a combination of these factors - causing the problems...

Now I burnt the 10.04.1 amd64 installer to a DVD, suspecting that maybe with the USB stick present at installation time, there might be a mixup with device names later or something like that. This installation is running right now, and has been for over THREE HOURS - now being at 33% in the section "Select and install software". Surely this must indicate some underlying problem... I have never seen an installation taking that long yet.

When I switch to another virtual console and poke around a bit, the system seems perfectly responsive, as you would expect from a quadcore machine. I can't even hear the hard drive work. It seems as though the installer worked in slow motion. Are there any known problems concerning volume size, disk size, maybe in conjunction with amd64? I'm at a loss to explain this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install Server Amd64

Jul 12, 2011

For whatever reason, I cannot for the life of me install server amd64 on my server machine. I have a quad-core phenom 1st gen. USB/CD/HD, it doesn't matter what media its from. It randomly freezes on unpacking or configuring, the steps after configuring the network. If I shutdown, I can sometimes get further, or sometimes its shorter. I can't have it connected to the internet when installing or it goes bonkers. I have tried most of the fixes suggested around the forums, to no avail.

Now here is the crazy thing, I installed Ubuntu 64 Desktop with no problems. So for now, I will continued to install desktop and using tasksel to change it to a server.Oh BTW, I just found out installing desktop works, but I have had this server install problem since Gutsy. The 32bit version installs just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen When Booting With 10.04 - Amd64?

May 2, 2010

I have a Asus A8N-E motherboard with AMD64 processor and NVidia 6600 GT graphics card.I downloaded the AMD64 version of 10.04 (the boot+live cd) and tried booting with it. After looking at the screen showing Ubuntu loading with 5 dots moving forward for about 5minutes, the screen went blank (not completely blank as power-off but a very dark grey color). I waited for about 10-15 minutes in this state but nothing happened.During this whole 10-15 min period the disk usage on the machine was high.Eventually, I just turned off the machine and booted into windows (which was already present on my machine) successfully.Is that blank screen for such a long duration a normal step during installation or was a different process expected?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 AMD64 - Wouldn't Boot Into The Installer

Jul 11, 2010

I've spent a frustrating afternoon trying to install Xubuntu 10.04 x64. I had already installed Win7 Pro 64, and have been attempting to install on a separate hard drive. It wouldn't even boot into Xubuntu install. Figured a bad burn on the Cd so I reburned the image I had down loaded using Ktorrent. It wouldn't boot either. I swapped out the DVD burner. Still no go. Redownloaded using Ktorrent including the torrent. Wouldn't boot into the installer.

I did a fresh burn. Still it wouldn't boot to the installer. I then downloaded Xubuntu again but from a mirror and not using Ktorrent. Good MD5SUM. Burned it again on another computer. Still wouldn't boot into the installer. I burned a copy of Kubuntu 10.04 x64 and it installed with no difficulty. I've installed Xubuntu 10.04 x86 several times on other computers win no difficulty. But I have 8 Gb of RAM on this machine and want to use Xubuntu 64.

Ubuntu Installation :: AMD64 10.10 Installer Doesn't Load

Apr 9, 2011

I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my custom built AMD Athlon FX-53 system to use as a web server. I downloaded the AMD64 desktop version and whenever I boot to the CD it'll go through the loading screen, bring up the install background and then the mouse cursor will appear. After that the mouse cursor keeps switching between the loading one and the regular one and it never fully loads the installer.

The system specs are:

AMD Athlon FX-53 @ 2.4 GHz (Stock)
1 Gb OCZ PC-3200 ram (2x512)
PNY Verto FX5200
Western Digital 40 Gb IDE hard drive
based off an Asus SK8V motherboard (Skate 5 to me...)

I was able to install the 32-bit version and I've tried 2 burns, one on a CD-RW and one on a CD-R and the checksum is the correct one based on whats posted on the site.

Fedora Installation :: Error - The File Upstart-sysvint.0.65.9.fc14.i686.rpm Cannot Be Opened

Nov 20, 2010

it's the installation media or the ISO is broken because i have reburned / redownloaded the fedora14 multiple times with the same result. I even tried burning the disc on a different computer just to make sure the burner is still working. This is the error i am getting when the "Starting installation Process" dialog displayed.

"The file upstart-sysvint.0.65.9.fc14.i686.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source" I remember fedora 13 and below i have to use nousb command or something similar to get fedora installed properly but not for fedora 14. It just pops up with the message above.

Some inquiries regarding my Flash Player Plugin.

Setup: Ubuntu 10.04 (Fresh Clean Install) AMD64 Desktop - Using Firefox 3.6.9 with Flash Player Plugin

Problem: I can watch videos but cannot interface with the plugin. I.E. I cannot change volume, fullscreen, progress bar adjust, etc.

After researching for many How To's and install scripts I finally came across one that worked for my particular setup:

I got the script from the following link:

This installed successfully and I can watch videos but cannot interface with the plugin. I.E. I cannot change volume, fullscreen, progress bar adjust, etc.

I read that changes are in progress to update the 64 bit Flash Plugin for Mozilla, could this be a bug people have reported?
