Pinned topic Compile Ubuntu 10.04

‏2010-07-30T07:50:47Z |
Since I tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on my new Dell Latitude e6500 model I got this error

" This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU.
Unable to boot - Please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU "

My notebook config is Core i7 (720QM), 4GB ram, trackpad, Nvidia 3100 NVS grpx card.

Currently I am running Win 7 64 Prof.

Can someone help or point to source where I can get Info about downloading this entire source code and compile on my notebook.

Any help I would appreciate

    That sounds very odd. If you are attempting to install a 64-bit version and it isn't detecting the CPU properly, you might want to see if the install or live CD for any other 64-bit distro will detect the CD correctly.

    If you decide to go ahead with building a kernel, there are at least a couple of articles on the Ubuntu site Ubuntu documentation - Kernel Compile and HOWTO: Kernel Compilation for Newbies.

      ishields,

      Thank you for your reply.

      I went thru both the URLs you had replied with, but the steps described is expecting you to have Ubuntu before you can really compile the kernel. Since I am unable to install ubuntu I do not know how to go about downloading those utilities described in the URL you pointed out. Currently I am running Win 7 prof on this notebook.

      Arch latest distro for i686 is the only one which works with this CPU. But it lacks all of the ubuntu features. It is a plain vanilla distro.

      So if you think some other idea let me know.

      Thanks
      Ravi

        Can you do it on a machine that will load Ubuntu? You might also try asking on the Ubuntu Community Web forums, or contact Dell, since you are using a Dell machine.

    I think you are using a downloaded copy of that version. I was also having difficulty during Ubuntu 10.04 installation. I have downloaded the free version of ubuntu that time, then I ordered a free version from ubuntu's website, now the problem is resolved for me. Hope your problem will resolve soon.

    How does it run booting off the live cd?
