Hello,

When I try to install "Newer Advanced Kernel (32/64 bits) 4.9.27", I receive the following error: "ERROR: the package 49900 is not compatible with the package 49a00".

I have "49900 - 64-Bit Kernel 4.4.39" installed. Does it mean that I have to uninstall it first? Never had to uninstall anything before.

Thank you.

Hello

That's right, 1st uninstall the old 64-bit kernel

Then restart

Then install the new kernel

Then restart again

2 restarts total, bit inconvenient, but that's how it works.

Just wondering why you would want a 64 bit kernel? ZS never uses anywhere near 4 GB of RAM. As a matter of fact on my systems (which I am on the 3d now) it never used more than 128 MB of RAM, ever. Right now it is using 100 MB after almost 1 year uptime. A 64 bit kernel would be requried if you ran memory hungry applications which needed more than 4 GB each. Otherwise it would just bloat your memory allocation with no tangible gain.

Maybe you are right, but "why not?" It will not hurt.
