Naturally, there should be no errors if the RAM is good.
I routinely do this to any new machine, or any machine I've added RAM
to.  So far I haven't found any bad RAM in brand new computers, but I
*have* discovered bad RAM sold to me by computer stores.

Those bastards!

Time to emptor their caveats!!

Well, in all fairness, they took my machine in with no quibbles and replaced the RAM without even suggesting for the tiniest moment that they might like to put Windows back on there, which I half expected they would do.

I've run Memtest on it for 11 hours and 30 minutes today. No errors. So we're looking good.

And I've had no crashes or other weird events either, so it's looking good for a public apology to SuSE 10.0 for ever doubting it, as well. But I'm going to give it a few more days yet.
