    Re: software center package catalog damaged

    It would help if you posted the error message. How do you know there is something wrong with that kernel? What error message do you get when you try to install something or run Update Manager or sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade in the terminal?

    Without this kind of information anything we might suggest could do more damage than good.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    i was looking in forums and it said (sudo apt-get -f install) and it returns

    Re: software center package catalog damaged

    The Pentium M 1,3 GHz does not display the PAE flag, which is required for recent Buntus, as is confirmed in the error message:

    This kernel does not support a non-PAE CPU

    You can try a fresh install of Bodhi (link in my signature) or work around the PAE problem while staying with the Buntu family, if you prefer that. Would be interesting to know if you can salvage the installation by adding Fake-PAE.

    @mörgæs, I'm trying to figure out how the user got a 3.5 kernel installed without PAE and why it's starting to complain now
