Except for my toy home box, I now have a fleet of fine FreeBSD boxes up in
my office. Kudos to the FreeBSD folks. I have run many lowendian flavors
of PC-ish *nix and must say that FreeBSD is the best of the lot in my hands.
Anyway, off to a particular fine point......
I have the chance to put 4 meg simms in my motherboards (486-33/66mhz boards).
That will give me 32 megs in each rather than the current 8 megs of 1 meg
simms in each.
My question is --- are there any 16mb or other such memory limits in the
current versions of FreeBSD? I was not thinking that there was, but do
remember some versions of other *nices having problems at the 16mb barrier
on some motherboards. My boards are GA-486VT Taiwan clone shop boards
that the books on them say will take 256K/1meg/4meg simms. With 8 slots
and 4 meg simms that would give me a comfy 32mb of ram to work with.
I would not want to load up 32mb and only be able to use 16mb.
Any comments/pointers/suggestions appreciated.
