Debian 8 live


Hi all, I am new to all things Linux, so excuse my ignorance.
I have created Debian 8 live on a USB,to see how it runs on my acer D225E note book.
when i power up, i go to the Debian boot screen that gives me four live choices, I've been using Live(586)

Live(586)
Live(586 fail safe)
Live(686-Pae)
Live(686-Pae fail safe)

1) what are they ?
2) what would be the right choice ?

thanks

Atom?

What you have there is a ATOM processor with a 64-bit instruction set. It has some limitations.

I do not have one to test, but I would try that live(586) kernel boot first.

With a live-cd load, you can try all of them (one at a time) without doing any damage.

Someone else here may have ATOM specific experience and advice.

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

Did you mean the D255E?

PAE stand for "Physical Address Extension" and it allows 32 bit processors to use more than 4 GB's of memory. Please see here. The fail safe options are there in case you are having issues with the normal ones.

In your case, if your laptop is indeed the D255E, this won't matter since the maximum supported memory is 2 GB's, so you could probably get away with using the first entry, "Live(586)."

Regards...
