    I'm glad a current Xubuntu version works for you, blueled

    And for our project, thanks for confirming that this kernel works with a Transmeta Crusoe CPU!

    Would you be interested in testing also future versions of and with Phill's non-pae kernel?

    Absolutely! I'm still installing packages to complete the installation and try to get pen input working etc. It's an experiment for me to try and get it alive using an up-to-date OS rather than the obsolete XP that came from factory.

    There is a new iso file of the OBI-9w installer which is up to date with a new version of PhillW's non-pae kernel and updated/dist-upgraded packages:

    obi_Trusty-nonpae-txt5-9w.iso

    that you find at http://phillw.net/isos/linux-tools/9w

    Once started to make a new installed system for the OBI-9w installer, I continued making tarballs. There are two new tarballs for the regular One Button Installer which are up to date with a new version of Phill's non-pae kernel and updated/dist-upgraded packages:

    Code:
    Lubuntu_14.04oem-npae5.tar.xz          # in OEM mode, password: 123456
    Trusty-nonpae-txt5.tar.xz              # user: guru, password: changeme
    You find them at

    http://phillw.net/isos/one-button-installer/

    See the instructions at this wiki page

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OBI

    -o-

    Using the Lubuntu tarball makes it more convenient than to download a standard iso file

    Lubuntu 14.04 LTS:
    lubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso
    lubuntu-14.04-alternate-i386.iso

    install and run two months worth of updates/upgrades.

    You will also find the installation from

    Code:
    Trusty-nonpae-txt5.tar.xz
    (or the corresponding OBI-9w installer) a convenient alternative compared to starting with

    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS: mini.iso

    Re: Please help us test Lubuntu with Phill's non-pae kernel

    Hi,

    I have been testing several versions of Phillw's non pae kernels, until the last one which is now working! \o/

    Bento Trusty RC1 - Ubuntu Openbox Remix - now works as a live desktop with the latest non pae kernel patched with AUFS provided by phillw. http://phillw.net/isos/bento-ubuntu-remix/
    (See the readme.txt for some information about Bento).

    It boots to the desktop, it can be installed, just in Virtualbox the pae feature must be unticked in the system configuration tab, and the resolution may be improved by adding the following packages: virtualbox-guest-utils and virtualbox-guest-x11, (if in the Live, logout, and login with the username "ubuntu", then click in the password field, don't type anything, hit "enter").

    Once installed in Virtualbox you may have to install the same packages again and logout/login. (Bento Trusty is really a draft of what it will become in the future, it still lacks polish, finish, but it's a working system which can be used for testing purposes).

    The standard One Button Installer is updated to version 2.5 based on Lubuntu 14.04 LTS with updates/upgrades to the current date. There is one version with the standard generic-pae kernel and one version with a Phill's non-pae kernel.

    The recent improvements are described in the posts #22, 23, 24 in this Ubuntu Forum thread

    and in this wiki page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/OBI

    Re: Please help us test Lubuntu with Phill's non-pae kernel

    my thanks to Phillw (for tackling this project) and sudodus (for previous posts in the forums about pae issues)

    I have a HP Compaq nc4000 with a Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz 400 MHz 1M Laptop CPU SL6F8 (Banias)
    I own, but have not installed or tested a Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz 400 MHz 1M Laptop CPU SL6FA

    It has 768 MB Ram and a WiFi upgrade. This laptop is mint, so I am trying to make it dual boot XP, and discovered my pae problem when I tried to install Ubuntu.

    Is this processor of interest in this study? I am expecting that forcepae will work with Lubuntu, but I could test live CD's or test kernels. I am on the learning curve, but doing these things is in my area of interest, and I think this project is worthwhile.
    edit: Lubuntu 12.10 does have pae issue on nc4000, have not tried to frocepae

    Hi Roberto,

    I think we know pretty well now, that Phill's non-pae kernel for 14.04 works as it should. And I agree with you that forcepae should work with your Pentium M and Lubuntu 14.04 LTS. A friend of mine has an IBM Thinkpad T41 with such a CPU (and I have a similar computer with a slightly newer CPU (1.7 MHz)). Be sure to install the newest point release (now 14.04.1 LTS).

    But I welcome your wish to test it. I would suggest that you try according to this link

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/9w

    installing Trusty from this iso file

    http://phillw.net/isos/linux-tools/9...ae-txt5-9w.iso

    Please post your results here, and particularly, if you notice any differences in performance between the non-pae kernel and the pae kernel running with forcepae.

    Re: Please help us test Lubuntu with Phill's non-pae kernel

    I just found this thread and it sounds like the perfect thing to get Lubuntu 14.04 on my EeePC 701 - which is still runnning 11.04!

    But I am confused over what I should use. As per the last entry on "https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu-fake-PAE", I just downloaded http://phillw.net/isos/linux-tools/9...ae124-text.iso - but I see you are suggesting something else.

    Which option should I go for, to best get a 'normal' 14.04LTS Lubuntu installed with this recompiled non-PAE kernel? I do want to be able to have all the standard Lubuntu software, LXDE etc.
