Listmates,

I'm totally confused as to why my 10.3 x86_64 box is only using 3 out
of 4 gig
of memory. It was running 2 gig and I added 2 gig today. All four are good
sticks of OCZ platinum DDR400 on the Gigabyte 8KE S2865 board with an Opteron
180 processor. I have other i586 10.3 boxes running and recognizing 4 gig with
the big-smp kernel, but I was under the impression that the x86_64 default
kernel could address up to 64 gig of memory.


...
Socket Designation: Socket 939

I have this socket and had to change the bios to not reserve above
3.2g for system processes (if memory serves).

anyway, it is a bios issue.
