I don't know if the devs read the forum, but I thought I'd make a request anyway:
Please keep the nonpae kernel as default for the 32-bit LMDE iso when the next iso is published.
All of the other current Mint versions seem to require a pae-capable processor, but Debian still makes the nonpae kernel available for 32-bit systems. Due to a bug in the Intel Pentium-M processors, pae kernels won't boot. Are there really that many systems running the 32-bit version of Mint that are capable of having more than 3 Gb of RAM on the motherboard? It would seem that almost anyone able to mount enough RAM to require pae would be able to run the 64-bit version, wouldn't you say? In addition, adding the 686-pae kernel if required to the system once the iso is installed is almost a trivial task.
I'm abandoning Ubuntu for my pristine 2002 Pentium-M notebook because they have dropped the nonpae kernel. Mint LMDE runs well for me and I would hate to have to abandon it also.
