Is there possible way to change bit if my system is using 64 bit kernel?
Is it possible to change bit of a system? My system is using 64 bit kernel. I was trying to install chrome in my system. But, I couldn't since chrome doesn't support 32 bit. Since my system is using 64 bit kernel. Is there possible way to change my bit?
The error why I couldn't install chrome in 32 bit system.
dpkg: error processing archive google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb (--install): package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386) Errors were encountered while processing: google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
Answer of it :
You can do nothing.
Google decided to stop supporting 32bit with Chrome. So, either you move to a 64bit system, or you stop using Google Chrome.
It is a company (Google) choice and the only thing that the community can help you with, is giving you alternatives (like the open source Chromium Browser, on which Google Chrome is based). ~ AskUbuntu
Don't try to move to 64 bit if your system isn't using 64 bit kernel. The solution is pretty is for Debian-based linux.
sudo dpkg --add-architecture amd64 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -f install sudo apt-get install libexif12:amd64 libpulse0:amd64
i386 userspace to
amd64 is also possible, but it's far more complicated and risky.
