Perhaps I need download a live media for it :-?

You could try the USB images from here:

Ah, thanks. Now I have to locate a stick ;-

)))) Oh. My ")" key failed to work for some moments.

I don't have a free stick at the moment. I'll have to free up one.

Telcontar:/data/storage_b/Isos/otros/memtest # time cp /dev/sdf stick4g
real 4m47.814s
user 0m0.036s
sys 0m10.944s

Ok, copy the image, boot that machine... test running!

Oh, apparently the memory in that machine is fine, but sometimes I get a message about corruption in low memory. I suspect it is related to hibernation. Time will tell.

But if memtest had said "failure" I would have been able to return the modules to the shop. No report, no return.
