* pin the Kernel version before updates (newer version seems to be incompatible with nonpae flag)
Add the PAE flag to processor information
To add the PAE flag to the processor information stored in /proc/cpuinfo, run the following:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | sed 's/flags\t*:/& pae/' > /tmp/cpuinfo_pae sudo mount -o bind /tmp/cpuinfo_pae /proc/cpuinfo sudo mount -o remount,ro,bind /proc/cpuinfo
After you have ran those commands, run
grep flags /proc/cpuinfo
If the flag was correctly added, the command returns a line that starts with “flags :” and contains the flag “pae”.
