When I installed F11 on my Toshiba laptop, it installed the PAE version
of the kernel. I am assuming that my laptop has a CPU with Physical
Address Extensions functionality and can therefore address up to 64GB
My laptop only has 3 GB installed. Can anyone explain the pro's and con's of using the PAE version of Linux kernel instead of the non-PAE version?
Would the PAE version of the 32-bit Linux Kernel see 4 GB of memory if it was installed where Vista 32-bits only sees about 3GB? For that matter would the non-PAE version see the full 4 GB?
