Re: LiveCD install and PAE kernel

I just rebuilt an older box (Athlon XP, VIA chipset - KM400 I think, openchrome X driver). Preview KDE Live CD works fine, but when I installed the full preview release from DVD, X terminates when Kwin starts (need to use metacity as KDEWM, or run Gnome). Not found any useful log indicating why.

Could PAE kernel cause this? I'll try installing the i586 non PAE kernel (only 1G RAM anyway), and see how it goes (and file a bug perhaps)

The LiveCD is always an i586 kernel, and always installs the one from
the cd.
