Description

Dear Parabola users/devs,

I've discovered an error releated to the Net install ISOs.
When I try to boot them on a 32-bit PC, I get an error which says:

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

although I chose the i686 option in the boot menu (the x86-64 one doesn't even appear).

  • It affects both OpenRC and systemd releases.
  • I downloaded them using magnet link, files checked with supplied sha512sums (no checksum mismatch).
  • The previous OpenRC image (2020.01.18) is unaffected.

The CPU is a Mobile Pentium 4 @ 3,06 GHz.

The same error is encountered here both on CLI images and LXDE images.
