Re: Fw: Dropping i386 non-PAE as a supported kernel flavour in Precise Pangolin

Maybe it's just me, but the most elegant solution is as follows:

Make one final non-PAE version and then just let it float until the end of
the lifetime.  Support it, but don't upgrade the kernel or any packages
that rely on the kernel.  Then, whenever anyone needs to download a version
that works on non-PAE versions, they just download
Lubuntu-Non-PAE-final.iso (or whaterver).

Hi Josh,
i dont think its a good idea to provide a package which does not get (security) updates. specially if it is the linux-kernel.



"Supported doesn't" always mean that every aspect is in development and
useful.  Only the key aspects that define the OS.
