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

Cross-grading an i386 userspace to amd64 is also possible, but it's far more complicated and risky.
