686-PAE Kernel

Post by Curtrey » Fri Feb 22, 2013 7:11 am

I have been using Linux Mint Debian on two of my desktops which have single core CPUs.
I have now acquired a motherboard bundle with a quad core CPU. The LMDE information site says I should install a 686-PAE kernel. Please explain how I can do this. Exact instructions would be appreciated as my command line skills are hopeless.
Thank you
Curtrey

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install linux-image-686 linux-headers-686-pae

Thank you very much for your help.
The command line went in fine and after rebooting all the problems I had with LMDE vanished.

I am most grateful

PAE kernel is not required if you install the 64 bit version.

Sorry to hijack the thread but when I tried the command above it says that linux-image-686 cannot be found

Any ideas ?

It was a transitional package, it's not there anymore. Use linux-image-686-pae.
