Noticed the new 3.2.45-pclos7 and 3.2.45-pclos7.pae kernels.
If a machine has a pae processor and under 4 gb ram, which kernel would be more efficient? Is it true that a pae kernel might have a slight performance drop in this setup.
On one note, the pclos7.pae "is optimised for i686 CPUs". Is the regular pclos7 not optimised for i686 CPUs?
On the other note, the regular pclos7 "is compiled with voluntary kernel preemption enabled", while the pclos7.pae "kernel preemption is disabled". Which is better?
