Help - Adding RAM - Linux doesn't recognize

Post by Charles Stac » Thu, 06 Aug 1998 04:00:00



I just upgraded my 486 from 20 to 53MB or RAM.  Linux doesn't recognize the
new memory.  How can I make Linux aware of the added memory?

TIA,

Charles

You need to be sure BIOS sees it as 53MB (?) of continous RAM space.
Linux has no problem up to 64 MB and little problem above that.

1. Linux doesn't recognize ALL my RAM

I have 96 megs ram in this machine, but for some reason linux only
recognizes 64 of it. I read somehwere that this is going to happen,
but on bootup you can specify a certain command to make it recognize
it all. I am running red hat 5.0... I am new at this.. so please be
patient :)

thanks in advance
Neil
