I know that Ubuntu +1 questions are frowned upon, but this I believe is a fair exception. Currently I have 2 systems running Ubuntu 12.10, and one of them has a Pentium M that doesn't support PAE (strange I know, but true).

This has meant in the past that I had to rely on a custom iso to install Ubuntu a similar system,and so this time I went with Xubuntu 12.04.

My question is 2 fold, but really one question:

  • Is it/will it be possible to install a non-pae version of the 12.10 kernel from the standard repositories?
  • If no, how can I get such a kernel? (Is there a PPA with such a kernel available?).


Before anyone suggests that I just install this package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/linux-image-generic, please note that this comes with PAE enabled.

P.S. Yes, I have Googled. I haven't found the answer.
