My desktop has a i686 CPU running macOS and I'm looking to install Fedora 26 i686. It turns out that they only support x86_64 and i386 (plus the various ARM architectures). I've tried to install Fedora using these two but they have all failed. They both make the shell return
dracut-pre-udev: rpcbind: /run/rpcbind/rpcbind.lock: No such file or directory dracut-pre-udev: rpc.idmapd: conf_reinit: open ("(null)", 0_RDONLY) failed dracut-pre-udev: rpc.idmapd: conf_reinit: open ("(null)", 0_RDONLY) failed
However, when I install Ubuntu 12.04 i686, it works perfectly fine!
I've looked through their archive and it turns out the last time they officially released an image with i686 architecture was with Fedora 17 in 2010.
Why doesn't Fedora release Workstation in i686?
