I need the ppa too. I've updated yet my Thinkpad T42 from Lubuntu 12.04 to 12.10. Everytime I want to install or update something I get this error:

E: Unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten. Versuchen Sie 
apt-get -f install« ohne Angabe eines Pakets (oder geben Sie eine Lösung an).

if I try apt-get -f install I earn this:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Is there a possibility to use 12.10 with Intel Pentium M Processors?

non-pae kernel for ubuntu 12.10: you find the ppa here:… volker – volker Nov 3 '12 at 18:33

There is an alternative. The T42 will definitely run with official PAE-Kernels (this is also good news for owners of R40, R50, R51, R52, X31, X32, X40, X41, T40, T41, T42, T43)

  • install the package fake-pae from this repository
  • reinstall that broken package linux-image-3.5.0-17-generic, this time it will install without errors. Also then let it reconfigure all other packages that depend on it, it should work and bring your package system back into a consistent state with the new 3.5 kernel happily installed.
  • then reboot with your new kernel, everything should be ok, also all subsequent kernel upgrades should now work as long as you leave the fake-pae package installed on your system.

possibility to use 12.10 with Intel Pentium M Processors:

-installed lubuntu 12.04 with generic (non-PAE) 3.2.0-33 standard kernel (as virtual machine under VB) on dell D505 (Pentium-M),

  • upgraded to 12.10 using "apt pinning" to avoid problems with the generic (PAE) 3.5 kernel,

  • after removing again apt pinning, installed the non-PAE 3.5 kernel from the PPA as referenced above.

Everything appears to work. volker
