After replacing my 8x1M RAM by 4x4M I started getting segmentation faults
when using more than some 10M of memory. The kernel started spitting out
error messages, most often ``swap_free: weirdness'' or
``Trying to free/duplicate nonexistent swap-page'' and every now and then
``Bad page table: [00...CD0]=10000000'' where the ... stands for 3 random
I've got the Linux 1.0.9 kernel installed using the Slackware 2.0.0 setup,
the swap-partition was initialised ok using mkswap.
Is this an indication that the memory chips can't handle Unix? They're 70ns
chips, and with DOS or Windows stuff using lots of memory there are no
problems (so somehow I'll have to convince the shop to let me trade them
in for new ones then).
Any help to tell me what I can do about this will be appreciated.
