Re: Non-pae kernel option?

I messaged Corenominal about this, he said he is considering putting back the option for i486, if you would all like to see this in the next release then say so!
Corenominal does read these forums and listens to us, as proven by the browser thread a little while ago.

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

I hope that the i486 will again be an option.  If the i486 kernel is default than more people will be able to use crunchbang.  It is not hard to add the pae kernel if your machine needs it.

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

Let us clear some stuff. Debian will not drop support for non-pae kernels for the mid to long future. Debian always conservative about dropping support for deprecated or old hardware. But Debian moved non-pae kernel to the I486 kernel. Also support for the Intel Pentium Processor also moved to the i486 architecture. I know that because I also have an Intel Pentium Laptop and couldn't run Woldorf cause it's missing pae component(according to the error message at boot).

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

I wouldn't hold my breath. It's pretty easy to install antiX 486 core and "crunchify" it (or not, depending on your preferences).

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

^ Well in this case I prefer to install my beloved Debian and crunchify it (like I often do, #! repo is always present on my machines) but I would prefer official Papanominal support smile

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

That Thinkpad storms along at 1.2GHz, I'm running Statler on a 630MHz Celeron with a 3.2.0-0.bpo.2-486 kernel.
Everything except flashy (YouTube, Facebook et al) websites runs just fine.
I had to install using the text based installer and then replace the 686 kernel with the 486 one using Synaptic to download it.

A non-pae kernel as a startup option on the installer would be fantastic (sorry for adding to anyone's workload - I would offer to help but am lost at this kind of level).

Re: Non-pae kernel option?

This morning, I completed some test builds using the 486 non PAE kernel. All being well, I am planning on updating the Waldorf images next week and I will make available both 486 and 686 versions smile

Glad to see it...Thanks!  Youduhman!  I run several Pentium M ThinkPads that need the 486 kernel.
