Thread: Which kernel to use in opensuse 11 ?

    Default Which kernel to use in opensuse 11 ?

    I just installed opensuse 11 and in the bootloader I now have two kernel boot options, default and pae.

    I can boot each one of them without issues, but I don't know what the advantage is of using default and pae.

    Can somebody explain me why I should use pae or not knowing that my laptop is a core2duo T7400 with 2GB of RAM.

    Thanks.

    They are the same thing, as you can see from the entries in menu.lst:
    title openSUSE 11.0
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25.5-1.1-pae root=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_Maxtor_6L160P0_L30VFB7H-part2 resume=/dev/sda7 splash=silent showopts vga=0x31a
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25.5-1.1-pae

    title Kernel-2.6.25.5-1.1-pae
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25.5-1.1-pae root=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_Maxtor_6L160P0_L30VFB7H-part2 resume=/dev/sda7 splash=silent showopts vga=0x31a
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25.5-1.1-pae
    The two entries differ only in the "title" line. I don't know why the devs have created duplicate entries -- interesting
