Hi

I am running Red Hat 6.2 on my computer with 128 MB of Ram. But when i
look up the info on my memory, it states that total memory is 62.6 MB.
How do i enable 128 MB of Ram on my system.

Thanks in advance

Arun
At the LILO prompt type Linux mem=xxMB
or
log in as root or su
edit /etc/liloconf
add
append="mem=xxM"
save /etc/lilo.conf
type /sbin/lilo
reboot
type free to see if it works.

1. 128 MB RAM - How to get Linux to recognize?

I've been to Dejanews where a search revealed several posts asking how to get Linux to recognize
that there's 128 MB RAM installed.  The methods tried by some (unsuccessful) and implemented
(successfully) by others is to add append="mem=128M" to /etc/lilo.conf.  Been there, done that, and
still only 64 MB is recognized.  Where should this line be added?  Top, middle, end of file?
One post suggested that LILO be run after modifying lilo.conf.  Is not LILO "run" after a restart?
Help.

TIA,

John McKee
