Memory problems

Post by Leon Styliot » Wed, 17 Feb 1999 04:00:00

Hi all

I have been having probs with Redhat 5.2 concerning passing the mem=128M
parameter at bootup

I boot from floppy, pass the string, the system recognises it, and lets
me log in.

For some reason, it randomly freezes the system.

I have a Gigabyte LX4 motherboard, with 2 x 64MB DIMMS [100Mhz]
I boot from floppy disk, and I have never experienced memory problems
with Windoze98

Can anyone help?

The freezing can occur at anytime, but it normally occurs in X
I am running 2.0.36-7
I use KDE 1.1, and love it

Please help Hard Drive cannot take much more thrashing

try checking your memory with:
does your machine shadow any ram?


1. Memory problem. No linear memory?!?!?

I have a Compaq Prosignia 500 with 144MB RAM. (147 xxx Kbytes) Mandrake
6.1 installed, can only find 16MB RAM. In the setup there are 2
extended memory banks (0-15MB and 16-352MB), that can't be linear.

Is it possible to make linux use both memory banks, so I can use all of
the memory? And how do I do that? Is there a MEM parameter in LILO that
can fix this problem?
