I have installed opensuse 11 on a labtop system containing:
- Intell Core2duo 7500
- 4 GB of RAM
Since the core2duo is 64-bit and I want to fully access/use my 4 GB, I installed x86_64 opensuse 11. After the initial install, I ran “uname -a” and received as kernel version x86_64 ( so 64-bit ), however I ran an update ( latest patches ) and after the reboot I noticed that the uname -a reported “i686” so no 64-bit kernel any more.
When I try installing 64-bit applications, the installer complains that the kernel is not 64-bit.
Installed centos 5.1 64-bit and do not have the problem their.
I wanted to run opensuse and not centos ( rhel clone ), but I need to resolve this problem.
Any advice ? Suggestions why.
