The non-PAE kernel is a version of the 32-bit linux kernel that does not use 48-bit addressing, limiting memory size. This kernel is often used on older systems that cannot use PAE and refuse to boot with a regular kernel. This tag may include questions related to adding or removing this kernel from one's system, or booting with this kernel, especially in trying to use the Live CD to boot older non-PAE systems.
