Forcing 32bit kernel at boot

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this sounds crazy but I would like to run this OS in 32bit mode until I am ready to move to 64 bit. I would like to edit the com.apple.boot.plist so that I don't have to type -x32 everytime I boot up Snow Leopard. By default it wants to use 64bit kernel on my system.

 

I know to force 64bit one must put in the kernel flags area, but what do I put for 32 bit mode?

 

[font="Lucida Console"]<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=x86_64</string>[/font]

 

Thanks
