    12.04 and Pentium M CPU error

    I downloaded the 32bit 12.04 and burned a CD but when I boot on my older laptop with a Pentium M CPU I get the error "This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: pae Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU."

    Have I got the wrong iso? or maybe 12.04 won't work on this laptop.

    yup you need to down load one of the other ISOs you need 32bit with pae which as I understands it is fakes 64bit allows your computer to access and address more then 3 gb of ram ..

    Actually, the problem is that you need a kernel WITHOUT pae. Your cpu doesn't support pae, and as of 12.04 the default kernel requires cpu support for it.

    See this page for help: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/05/how-t...n-non-pae.html

    oh the reverse I didn't catch that ..
    actually thought you have to go out of your way to the list of sites to get ISO 32 bit with pae the same with the alternate iso ...

    @irv

    If you still want to get Ubuntu Studio running with a new kernel (with pae), try fake-pae by 7bit. See these links, that describe how to use fake-pae
