Does this mean "Why is the Server edition only available for AMD64?"

It is not only available for AMD64 - it is available for other formats...

"linux-image-2.6.31-14-server_2.6.31-14.46_amd64.deb" - this is for amd64 and for x86_64?

"Does this mean "Why is the Server edition only available for AMD64?"" No, does this mean "Why is the Server edition kernel only available for AMD64"

No. "linux-image-2.6.31-14-server_2.6.31-14.46_amd64.deb" is ONLY for amd64.

But as there are iso for i386 downloadable, this leak of i386-kernel in the repo might only be for some hoers or days.

Such things happen while in testing phases.

Can you help with this problem?
