Your BIOS is brain dead. That's ok, you can work around it. Add
this to your kernel config (/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/MYCONFIG):
If this freaks or locks up when you restart, your BIOS is also
stealing a bit of RAM that makes the above math invalid. Not many
machines have this problem, but a few do (my ThinkPad does). To fix
it if it happends, use:
If you're worried about losing that part of a MB, when the machine
boots take note of the *exact* number of bytes of memory test/found
and use that instead of the above calculation.
BSD: A psychoactive drug, popular in the 80s, probably developed at UC
Berkeley or thereabouts. Similar in many ways to the prescription-only
medication called "System V", but infinitely more useful. (Or, at least,
more fun.) The full chemical name is "Berkeley Standard Distribution".
Reset you bios to defaults and dont play around with bios anymore.Quote:>I installed freeBSD on a Compaq proliant 800 with 90MB of ram

Hi. This is quite simple. The free command reports a total of 64 MB and my
computer has 90 MB... (it reports aproximatly 65000 KB).
Is Linux using only 64 MB of the 90 MB available?
I this normal?
