Hi Jack,

Thanks for verifying that it works :-)

You mentioned VB (VirtualBox). Please specify also the computer, where
you tested on directly 'on metal'.

Best regards

and hi everybody :-)

Have you got an old computer (with a pre-pentium II CPU) without PAE
capability? In that case, please help testing this new non-pae kernel
made by Phill! Until there is an iso file, it might be possible to
install either via Plop and USB, or directly to the hard disk drive,
HDD, in the following way:

Remove the HDD, and connect it to a (newer) computer, where the One
Button Installer can run, and install Lubuntu Trusty non-pae from

Ltrusty-npae-feb23.tar.xz

and move the HDD back to that pre-pentium II computer again.

The installed Lubuntu is portable, so it works also in the old computer
provided the free drivers can manage the graphics etc. You might be able
to help it run with the boot option 'nomodeset' or the boot option 'text'.

Best regards
Nio
