Slackware64-current installation detects i686


Hi

I am trying to install Slackware64-current into a virtual image. The hardware is 64bit and the host system is Slackware-13.1 (32-bit).

Code:
qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu kvm64 -m 1024 -hda sw64.img -cdrom /home/samac/slackware64-current-install-dvd.iso \
-net user -net nic,model=e1000 -vga vmware -sdl -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw sb16 -boot d
The installation DVD iso starts to boot and then says
Quote:
This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU, but only detected an i686 CPU. Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU
It says this no matter what variable I use for -cpu

Any ideas how I can modify the command to allow Slackware64-current to install in a 32-bit kvm-qemu image running on 64-bit hardware.

You are trying an unsupported configuration. From http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/FAQ#Ca...t_about_PAE.3F :
Code:
Can KVM run a 32-bit guest on a 64-bit host? What about PAE?

KVM supports 32-bit guests on 64-bit hosts, and any combination of
PAE and non-PAE guests and hosts.
The only unsupported combination is a 64-bit guest on a 32-bit host.
