Well at that point just stick a PAE in; it will be rejected if PAE is not enabled.

You're right, I do see a pae flag when I run the `cat proc/cpuinfo | grep flags` command.

It looks like H2 leaves out several of the flags in his inxi -Fx command, it lists 10 different flags on my machine.

The `cat proc/cpuinfo | grep flags` command lists 81 flags and repeats them for each cpu core.

Just try

Code: Select all

inxi -f
example on my laptop

I never noticed that -f option before. I wonder how he decides which flags to show in the short version?

Code: Select all

Btw, I wonder why don't I have a acpi flag? Maybe that's why I've been having problems recovering from sleep (suspend) mode.

Although I can see the file and the flags line, when I run the cat proc/cpuinfo | grep flags command as regular or super user I get

Code: Select all

cat: proc/cpuinfo: No such file or directory
If however I run cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep flags I get the whole list:

Code: Select all

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep flags

In the first one you're missing a slash "/".

edit: oops, I see I also left it out in one of my earlier posts.

That's a copy/paste from the earlier posts, including yours, where there is no slash.

Dear kmathern,

I hope this finds you well.

You wrote:

"antiX12 should have inxi installed.
If you run inxi -Fx it will show a flags line in the CPU section, if it doesn't list a pae flag you'll need the non-PAE version.
btw adding the "x" is necessary, 'inxi -F' by itself doesn't show the flags."

If I'm following your instructions correctly, after running "inxi -Fx" in my ROXTerm, the 'flags line' in the CPU line on my Fujistsu machine reads as follows:

flags: (sse sse2)

So, I guess I'll need the, umm, (taking a wild guess) PAE version on that box, correct?

I hope I'm on the right track, even though I may be on the wrong train.

Thanks again for your help.

If you do not see pae in the flags entry, then you need non-PAE
