Summary: kernel-pae installed even if not needed
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx

Currently kernel-pae is installed even on hardware where it does not
bring any advantage, like if has small RAM and does not have nx (but
still cpu flags it supports pae).

It should be installed in these two cases:
1. /proc/cpuinfo contains pae and host has >4GB of memory
2. /proc/cpuinfo contains nx

This affects older hw, where the performance gain could be eventually useful.
Cf. also feature 159006.
