Memory > 128 MB - How to make it recognized ??

Post by Rainer Echl » Thu, 30 Apr 1998 04:00:00



Hello to everybody,

I'd like to ask a question which I am sure has been answered before but
I might have missed it. Sorry for asking again.
I'd like to know what I have to add at boot time in order for Linux to
recognize my total memory of 160 MB. I have used so far  "append=160M"
but LINUX only recognizes 128 MB. However upon bootup the BIOS
recognizes 160 MB and checks for it also.

Any comment is appreciated, and sorry if this has been asked before.

Thanx

Rainer

Taking for granted that you've run /sbin/lilo as root after changing
lilo.conf
<and that as you said in your follow-up that lilo.conf has
append="mem=160M">

then you might  try kernel version 2.1.99 or so. 2.1.xx can access up
to 4.5 gig of RAM. It might not be the best solution  (I've had
trouble with my printer and PPP under 2.1.98, but that's me)  but it
will certainly access >64meg of ram without any special lilo settings.

I've got 128meg of RAM, and that's about as far as I'm willing to go
for now.

1. Memory > 128 MB ?

Hi,

we are running Unixware 2.1 on an ASUS Dual PII - Board, equipped with
256 MB Mem. (Before upgrading we were running the System with 128 MB
Memory).
After upgrading the board and rebuilding the kernel - without changing
the UW-Installation -
the 'memsize'-utility reports only 128 MB.

I can't believe that this should be a limit of UW 2.1.
What have we done wrong ?

Many thanks for any hint....

Michael
