jjaythomas wrote:12.04 will keep using a non PAE kernel and switch to a PAE one if can use in Ubuntu 12.04 but as now stands they aren't planning to NOT in 12.10 or above. ( I think Lubuntu developers even stated they aren't LTSing their next release 12.04 so they don't have to support for extra years?)
jjaythomas wrote:It's not having access to a nonPAE kernal it,s having a running install (that's current) disk that will run and then being able to get a PAE kernel if desired/needed (Debian tatic I think) with CB distro ect. you must install (if you even know it exits) a earlier spin and upgrade from their (and I think everything doesn't upgrade to the level/versions on the new spin. And new usier will just write off these (if not all Linx) distros as useless if they don't have the correct hardware

jjaythomas wrote:In regards to Lubuntu not LTSing, is it because PAE and NonPAE kernal require differt repos? I though repos same except between the 64Bits and 32Bits.
