    Xubuntu 12.04 Non PAE

    Xubuntu 14.04 is an outstanding distro but I just want to say one last thing about Xubuntu 14.04,it's a pity that i can't install on a machine that is no PAE.

    The kernel parameter works for all 14.04 Buntus.
    In the wiki I only mentioned Lubuntu because it's the lightest, but everything is valid for X/K/Ubuntu as well.

    Re: Xubuntu 12.04 Non PAE

    Please take your time to read in detail the text I posted. You will notice that the approach for 13.10 and 14.04 have not much in common.

    Question Re: Xubuntu 12.04 Non PAE

    I am helping out a few people with migrating from Windows XP to Ubuntu (mostly Lubuntu). On one machine, a Dell Latitude D505 (Celeron procerssor), I was also given the PAE error message when booting with Lubuntu 14.04 Beta 2:

    (PAE can potentially be enable with Kernel parameter
    "forcepae" -this is unsupported, may cause unknown
    problems ,and will taint the Kernel)

    Trying booting with the forcepae option resolved this, and I am just about to go ahead and install this early Lubuntu 14.04 as replacement for Windows XP (before Tuesday).

    But given I use this workaround that will "...taint the Kernel...", I feel slightly uncomfortable about how this will work when 14.04 is being updated. What happens when kernel updates are pushed out? Do I need to be concerned when handing this machine over with this installation? Is the option simply only needed during initial installation and never during updates (especially of the kernel)?

    Re: Xubuntu 12.04 Non PAE

    I don't know what tainted means in this context, but I have not experienced anything strange.

    The forcepae boot options sticks through kernel updates. You only have to set it once.
