(I initially found some information regarding PAE in another thread but was told to repost in EOL, so -- here it is! Can't link that post because I can't include a URL in a new post, apparently?)
I have dual Quad core 64-bit capable processors (total 8 cores), and I just went from 6GB to 24GB (lab computer).
This is a development computer for custom software for my robotics lab; a while back we made the decision to use the 32-bit kernel for minimum headache. This PAE feature seems like a great patch to allow more memory, as long as it doesn't booger my stuff up.
I'm working with FC14 (126.96.36.199-106.fc14.i686.PAE) <- PAE because of this thread, also updated my USB WiFi dongle drivers to PAE versions and it seems to be working.
Before I go through and update everything else manually, is there a nice way to do this "automatically"? I can write a bash script that compares my installed list to the available list and installs those that have PAE versions; before I reinvent the wheel though, is there a tool for this? And is it even necessary?
Thanks for any help!
