It seems the search field does not work, or is it just me?

I'm looking for latest noPAE compiled kernels + headers.

Better use a search engine:
Enter in the search field: your keywords site:forum.porteus.org

c'mon..
May I suggest trying some variations of the keywords like pae or kernel etc.

This could well be, because what do one need it for nowadays?

By the way, why / what for or for which hardware do you need a new non-PAE kernel?

I have PC's with 512 MB - 1 GB RAM (well, mine has 4 GB), and PAE has its 'overheads'. So, it boils down to x86-frugality. 'A new kernel' is like a program with a bigger version.

BZW, why 'new/latest'? There is no 'old' in the wild with headers. I need them for compiling ndiswrapper (v1.63; yeah, one Wi-Fi card is Broadcom-based), and I would like to avoid compiling a kernel along with it.

Just in case you haven't found it yet.

Porteus Kernel Builder

Just a thought..
porteus 3.2.2 [kernel 4.9] - wl [broadcom] driver is included.
you may not need ndiswrapper at all.

It's a fair point. Unfortunately, wl [broadcom] is not compatible with DWA-182 rev. A (ndiswrapper XP 32-bit driver only).
I've found PKB as a last resort, but where are the hell all the download links for already compiled kernels? UPD.: Ah, there, in the end.

Yep, a search for Broadcom BCM43526 showed that there is no driver
in any Linux kernel version up to 5.9

Ndiswrapper / Windows driver can be the last resort
However, only the 2.4 GHz band can be used.

To be honest, I'd buy a "Linux Compatible" one to avoid hassle and frustration.
but that's just me..

good luck.
