I'm thinking about linux mint as my next OS, and was wondering if I should get the 32bit edition or the x86-64 edition.
My system has more than 4GB of ram, so in order to support that, either the Linux kernel has to be configured with PAE enabled, or I should use a 64-bit system. I was wondering if the default kernel which comes with linux mint 6 32-bit edition has PAE enabled? Does anyone here use it with more than 4GB of ram?
Sorry for asking this question in the hardware section, as I couldn't find any "kernel specific" section in the forum.
