Re: kernel-PAE hangs at boot -- did I do something wrong?

I installed last night from the KDE Snapshot 1 disc, and today I
noticed that my kernel was i586. I wasn't noticing any actual

should be able to support the i686-PAE kernel so I wanted to try it.

I just did "yum install kernel-PAE" which got me
kernel-PAE-2.6.29.1-70.fc11.i686. When I try to boot this kernel, it
seems to hang at the end of the boot process, when you would normally
switch to the login screen. Booting single-user works fine, but then
telinit 3/5 will hang. Note that booting kernel-2.6.29.1-70.fc11.i586
works just fine.

My processor is an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     P8600  @ 2.40GHz"
-- should this support the PAE kernel? Is there some other way I
should install it?


You should check the architecture of other packages like glibc. I am not sure what is the status now, but it used to be like that there were also glibc packages specific for i586, those did not play nice with i686 kernel.
