Is there a way to mark the 32-bit kernel incompatible with x86_64? That

installed on a 64-bit system.
Sorry, I should've clarified. I essentially want to mark it Taboo so
that it doesn't show up in zypper search.
Ah, I see. I'm not aware of a way to do this, sorry.

Could a dummy dependancy be used in 11.3, the kernel in x86_64 might
rely on a package that's only distributed in x86_64. Or would 32 bit
risk installing x86_64 arch packages to?

This is already solved, the 32bit kernels conflict with 64bit glibc, so
you won't be able to install them. However, zypper search doesn't do any
dependency calculation, so a search for kernel will also display the
32bit kernel-pae.
