No difference in the activation of software suspend since it is not mentioned in
For notebook users pae may not be imported but the No eXecute feature and the
suspend feature of the kernel are. For this reason both features should be
accessable or at least it should be proper documented.
PAE & suspend are incompatible in 2.6.18. I believe this has been fixed for
2.6.19, so when I backport that after its release, this should be fixed hopefully.
Situation is the same in kernel-PAE-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 from updates-testing:
software suspend is disabled. Any reason for not activate it?
As far as I know, swsusp still doesn't support PAE at 2.6.20.

2.6.20 should support it afaics:
Indeed, it should be present in the current builds..
