Thread: Newbee question on fedora and Celeron or P4

  1. Newbee question on fedora and Celeron or P4

    I recently downloaded Fedora and tried to install it on my spare
    computer which has a 2G Celeron. When booting from the CD I get the
    error "your CPU does not support long mode, try using a 32 bit". I then
    tried to install it into my wifes computer which has a Pentium 4 3G, and
    got the same error. Two questions:

    1. What exactly does that mean?
    2. Where can I get the 32 bit?

    Thank you for your time

    Sounds like you got the x86_64 ISO's instead of the ones you need. These
    ISO images are built for different processors (AMD-64 or Intel EM64T
    for example) then the ones you listed.

    http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...re/3/i386/iso/

    Want you want;

    FC3-i386-disc1.iso 03-Nov-2004 17:05 617M
    FC3-i386-disc2.iso 03-Nov-2004 17:07 638M
    FC3-i386-disc3.iso 03-Nov-2004 17:08 637M
    FC3-i386-disc4.iso 03-Nov-2004 17:10 386M

    or just the DVD ISO image;
