I have been running F14 as a 32-bit system (original m/b was 32-bit). Now the system is on a 64-bit dual-core processor board and I'd like to change from the 32-bit kernel to 64-bit.
I downloaded a 64-bit kernel (kernel-188.8.131.52-45.fc14.86_64.rpm) and attempted to install it. It won't install and Package Installer returns a message of the sort that says this file "has incompatible architecture. Valid architectures are ['athlon', 'i686', 'i586', 'i486'....]". My processor is an Athlon 64 x2.
Is it possible to do what I want to do (I only want the kernel at the moment)? Is there some Fedora file I need to modify to allow the system to install the 64-bit kernel for this m/b? Do I need another file (or files) installed before I install the kernel? Something else?
Thanks in advance for any help and guidance.
