Hi Kith, 
First of all, Happy New Year and wish you and the team have an excellent start in 2019!

Quick question, does Snakeoil installation support "forcepae" option? I have a notebook with Pentium M CPU, works OK with Lubuntu 18 with forcepae but cannot get it work with Snakeoil, any tricks to make it work?

Many thanks

William

This is tricky but doable. First up, boot up the notebook with your install USB. When you see the boot menu, press the letter 'e'.

Then edit the bootup commandline and add the forcepae option into the linux line. Then save the config and boot. This should work.

Once installed, you have to do the same thing again to boot. Then,
  1. modify the file /etc/default/grub and add the forcepae flag
  2. run "sudo update grub" to update the boot options
  3. modify /var/www/config/grub.template and did the same thing you did in step 1. This file is used by the kernel upgrade process to re-generate the grub configuration when using a new kernel
Having custom boot options is a good idea. Since I'm going to work on the custom kernel service soonish, this is something I can add to that. Will add this to my todo list.
