    Talking Re: The non-pae mini.iso testing thread

    mini.iso, pae version, booted O.K. on my IBM Thinkpad T40 which does not have the pae flag. To do this, I added the following to the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom being careful to leave what was already in the file

    menuentry "pangolin mini" {
    set isofile="/boot/iso/minipae.iso"
    loopback loop (hd0,1)$isofile
    linux (loop)/linux boot=/ iso-scan/filename=$isofile noprompt noeject
    initrd (loop)/initrd.gz

    As you see above, I have the .iso in a folder /boot/iso. Your option. sudo update-grub and reboot the mini.

    mini booted O.K. directly from the hard drive, no problem with the missing flag.

    As it installed, messages were 3.2.0-15-generic-pae however after booting it up O.K. the boot and /proc/version is which is running fine.

    Well, I'm used to a whole lubuntu (or unity) setup so there's a lot missing.

    What's running on the T40 now is (Lucid Lynx of course), three precise pangolins:

    One updated from Oneiric, non-pae

    One new install from 20120207 which is generic-pae not supposed to run but does. My opinion, the test for the flag is missing/doesn't work so it goes on and boots and runs O.K.

    One mini install from the pae mini but did result in non-pae generic. A whole lot of accesories & tools missing but did just get synaptic and even firefox up and running.

    Oh, they're all lubuntu's. I've got unity on other test pc's.

    Having fun,
