HW slowdown w/mem>64Mb

HW slowdown w/mem>64Mb

Post by Jacob Martinso » Fri, 30 Oct 1998 04:00:00

I have read a few posts about mem upgrades causes slower performance when
there is not enough cache to address it.  Does anyone know where there are
documented resources on this topic. Purely for learning/info purposes.  

Thanks in advance!!!


1. >64MB mem problem - why not fix it?

I'm very curious about why Linux only recognises 64MB RAM?
I know that there's a limitation in the method Linux uses to
get the RAM-size, but then USE ANOTHER METHOD!

My BIOS counts up to 96megs when I boot, NT finds 96 megs whithout
any help, so why could Linux not accomplish this too?
