64 bit Ubuntu kernel for a currently installed 32 bit userspace?
I was wondering if there was a simple way, either using dpkg Multiarch, or a .deb that reports itself as an i386 package to the package manager that contains a 64 bit Kernel and modules.
The reason why I ask is that although I have a 64 bit processor, when I installed my system in 2010, all I had was a 32 bit disk, and I currently don't really have much time to do a full reinstall,
And the reason I need a 64 bit kernel is so I can run 64 bit chroots so I can build 64 bit live cds.
(As a temporary solution, what I had to do was boot a 64 bit live CD, passing init=/bin/bash as a kernel option, then mounting my drive, then bind mount over the /media/lib/modules/version, then using pivot_root, and then running exec /sbin/init. allowing me to use everything, except for VirtualBox because it's Kernel modules are not installed on the Live CD.)
My only concern is if DKMS. would work...
The glass is at 50% of its capacity.
