    Does Mandriva One 2009 Include PAE

    I'm going to give Mandriva One 2009 a go, I don't need to download the DVD Image because I'll just get all the software I need from the repositories.

    I am aware that there is no 64 bit version of Mandriva One Available and I have 4GB of RAM. Older versions of Mandriva One did not include PAE so not all of my RAM was usable. I'd rather not have to download the full DVD just for the sake of having a 64 bit edition.

    If it's not included is there an easy way of enabling PAE on the system?

    The kernel in One supports up to 4GB of RAM (no PAE) so in practice it may miss a few hundred MB. If you want PAE support, though, you can just install One and then switch to kernel-server (which has PAE support).

    Do note, though, that kernel-server won't likely work with the NVIDIA proprietary driver, as it includes Xen support, which conflicts with the proprietary NVIDIA driver.

    The reason I replied here and not there is that this forum is *less* active so I can check it quickly on a weekend
