Thanks for your answers.
Answering this part:
So how to get /usr/src/kernels/126.96.36.199-174.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE
and why do I have /usr/src/kernels/188.8.131.52-174.2.3.fc12.i686?
I have noticed this link:
yum install kernel-PAE-devel
gave me /usr/src/kernels/184.108.40.206-174.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE
Then nvidia driver, which I build, could not be loaded into memory as per that link.
And I was to follow eckirchn
advice first, as was worried that I will need to reinstall this distribution with no PAE kernel, as per paulsm4
(indeed I have no need for PAE version) when I noticed in my grub.conf 220.127.116.11-174.2.3.fc12.i686 entry next to the 18.104.22.168-174.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE.
This happened probably yesterday when I did run: yum install kernel.
I did not know this was so easy. I thought I will have to download whole DVD, burn it, install again to get rid of PAE.
So I rebooted to that kernel version (same number, no PAE) and successfully created nvidia driver, which seems to be working fine.
I wonder why this PAE distribution has been attached to LINUX Format magazine? Who is having interest in it then? There must be some other than over 4GB memory addressing pros?
