[opensuse] SuSe 10.2/64 4Gb memory problem
  • From: Bas hendriks <bas@xxxxxxxx>

Hello,

I am fairly new to SuSe Linux having used mostly FreeBSD in production.

I am building a vmware server with SuSe10.2/64 as host os.
The problem is that only 2 Gb ram is available in SuSe, while 4 Gb is installed.

BIOS, memtest64+ and FreeBSD all report 4 GB.

The system becomes unresponsive during boot at "agpgart: Detected an Intel 965G Chipset.",
I had to add mem=4096M to grub arguments to boot  into the system.

The BIOS setting "Memory Remap future" is enabled.

Any help would be appreciated!

Best regards,
Bas Hendriks
