Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 : How To Use I386 Instead Of I686 Kernel
Sep 15, 2010
I just upgraded my box to ubuntu 10.4 from 8.04, as usual fast and without complications.I want to use the i386 kernel instead of the i686 (2.6.32-24) with aptitude and synaptics I have downloaded and installed but when I restart it jumps directly to gdm, no grub to choose, I also try to unistall the i686 version trough synaptics, as I did in previous versions , but I couldnt find any linux-i686 entry
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-184.108.40.206. 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:
Code: make ARCH=i386 menuconfig After this, I see the architecture set to "X86_32 = Y" in the .config file. But later, after I run
Code: 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.
Code: #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.
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?
I installed Debian Squeeze on a laptop today, with the official i386 DVD1. At the end, I was very disappointed to notice the installer automatically chose the amd64 kernel (with i386 packages ? how does that work ?). The hardware is compatible, but I'd really like to use the i386 kernel instead. Earlier, you could choose the kernel during installation ; I looked in Expert install with no luck. Where is it ?
I installed debian squeeze on an old computer that I found. (Pentium 4 3.2GHz HT) I installed from the i386 version, but now the uname command shows that its an i686. I don't find many packages that I need using apt-get. Do I need to compile each package I need from source or use dpkg to install the deb of an i386 version?
Can I use the i386 version on this computer rather than the i686 version? Will it cause a signifncant performance decreaes? (I use this computer to mostly do some reading and writing and file storage, no gaming etc.) How do I force the installer to use the i386 version?
I'm fairly new to linux Red Hat. We are running Rhel 3 on our VM's. We ran into a issue, (Bug 121801 - athlon-smp kernel does not support >4GB of RAM. what the stepos are to upgrade the existing kernel to the new i686? .
I made an update of my Centos 5.5 yesterday. In doing so glibc has been updated to glibc.i686. Just now some of my FPGA tools crash. Unfortunately there isn't a downgrade for glibc.i686. How can I replace glibc.i686 by glibc.i386?A simple yum install glibc.i386 conflicts with the files from package glibc-2.5-65.i686
yum list glibc Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could someone give a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this, for someone with no more than a basic understanding of navigating the OS?
I'd like to include architecture specific flags instead of the generic i686 ones if possible.
So far, my tests have revealed that Arch Linux runs faster than Debian several media apps. I initially thought this was due to the i686 optimization of Arch, but other mentioned it could simply be a kernel timer issue.
I know for a fact the differences aren't due to bloat, and I've installed both OSes from minimal install means. Only the absolutely needed dependencies have been installed.
I have Opensuse 11.3 with kernel 220.127.116.11-0.1-default i686 and use KDE4-4.5.1 from the new OpenSuse repo. My system sometimes freezes while using Firefox or Chrome and also sometimes playing with Kpatience or browsing images with Gwenview.
My video card is an old Sapphire Radeon working with radeon module and desktop effects are off. The only way to bring up the system is hard resetting. I tried also the desktop kernel with no difference.
Forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong forum, first time poster with Fedora. I have been using Linux for some time now, mostly Mint, but Fedora 12 @ work. Anyway, I receive the following error in my /var/log/boot.log:
Code: nvidia.ko for kernel 18.104.22.168-70.fc12.i686 was not found and the driver does not load (My xorg.conf file is not loaded), but once I am at a
I had fedora 12 installed on a Macbook pro Intel first generation with ATI Radeon graphics card (see the attachment). Compiz crash when trying to watch *.wmv movie codified with wmvvc1dmo on kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-67.fc12.i686. I want to convert the film to *.mpg, then I download the mplayer codecs in order to see the film, I can do it without problems with the on kernel-PAE-126.96.36.199-174.2.22.fc12.i686. But I updated my system last Saturday and when I was trying to see the movie again the computer began to respond really slow, then I began to close applications and when I tried to restart I got the message: "compiz is not responding".
I tried again but the same problem. Other thing that I noticed is that when the computer go to sleep, when I wake up it, the display show horizontal black spikes, it is like it doesn't have the appropriate refreshing rate. I think that the problem is related with the acceleration on graphic card. Yesterday, I booted on kernel-PAE-188.8.131.52-174.2.22.fc12.i686, and I watched the film, and the wake up was without problems. That is the reason I call it a regression.
I'm using OpenSuse 11.3 with last kernel 184.108.40.206-0.1-default i686 and KDE4-4.5.1 from the new repo. When I reproduce a video from one of my USB disk, after a while it stops waiting for the disk, then go on. This behavior is not related with the program used to reproduce (Kaffeine, Mplayer, VLC) and is present in both my USB disks, one with ext3 fs and the other with ntfs fs.
I have read all of the articles I could find on the problems. I am using the lilo bootloader as grub doesn't work. I have also added pci=nomsi to my lilo.conf and ran lilo -v. I can get the system to boot with kernel-2.6.18-8.el5. However I can't get the system to boot with kernel-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.i686.rpm. When I boot with kernel-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.i686 the system hangs after it prints bios data check successful. I tried adding suppress-boot-time-BIOS-data to my lilo.conf (I ran lilo -v after the change) and the system still hangs. The Optiplex 320 is running bios 1.1.12
Why won't newer kernels work? Is there a way to get more information to print before the hang to aid in debugging?
After updating to kernel-220.127.116.11-147.fc13.i686, my email (Thunderbird) fails to connect to the pop-server, and webpages (Firefox) load VERY slow, if at all.When I go back to kernel-18.104.22.168-85.fc13.i686, I have no problem at all.Network chipset: RTL8180
I just finished building a cross-compiler for i386-elf. But when I try to use it, the terminal gives me this error:

I was following a simple tutorial on how to program and compile a hello world program using assembly when I got this error;Quote:ld: i386 architecture of input file `hello.o' is incompatible with i386:x86-64 output.The tutorial told me to make two files;Quote:hello.asmsection .data;section declaration

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?
