I'm Runing an old IBM Thinkpad with a Pentium M and I need a non PAE Kernel. Is there one hiding out there somewhere and i'm not finding it?

What happens when you try to boot in to UberStudent 3.0 32-bit version?

Never mind about that. :!: I see the issue now.

I'm going to go ahead and try to make a 3.0 release with a non-PAE kernel for machines with requirements such as yours. I'll give an update here.

I had something weird happen. I used unetbootin to add cruchbang on my flashdrive. I then ran it as a live disk and went to install it. The install was fairly standard, no problems. Crunchbang was happy. But then when I started my computer it booted as UberStudent. Now it basically acts like UberStudent. When I ran updates i saw that some of them were labeled for crunchbang and some of my folders like "music" and "documents" had doubles. but other than that, nothing has really happened.
Should i just leave it alone and happily enjoy my UberStudent, or should i wipe my flashdrive and install crunchbang to where i don't have a hybrid UberStudent/Crunchbang (is this hybrid likely going to cause problems basically)?

There's lots of known inexplicable behaviors on non-PAE machines. ;)

I'd say enjoy it. :)

I did wind up having to take it off because i could't get anything to install. It would almost finish and then give me an error.

UPDATE: I've so far been unable to successfully install a kernel compiled for non-PAE, which is what I'd use in a non-PAE release. I've not given up...yet.

UPDATE #2: I must have a non-PAE machine to make a non-PAE UberStudent Edition.

If someone wants to donate about $250 through PayPal, stipulating the donation for the purpose of this Edition in the "add note" section of their donation, I'll use the donation to buy a used non-PAE machine from eBay. I'd like to. No absolute guarantees, but having studied out the issue I'm quite confident I can do it. :ugeek: It seems there are quite a lot of people with these still quite good machines that would benefit. I'd make it LXDE-based, I think, and everything would of course be GFDL and in the UberStudent repository and thus available as a public good. ;)
