Hi forum users,
are there real advantages for me in the PAE kernel? Execute Disable Bit/NX bit? Are viruses in linux coming up? Would you change to the Physical Address Extension? Or is this just enabled in the default kernel of openSUSE now?
Since a update to openSUSE 11.2 via a new installation I use the default kernel. As I remember before that it was the PAE kernel. I have only 2 GiB memory on my laptop.
Hope I choose the right sub forum.
