  1. System Ram

    Good morning everyone.

    Any thoughts on this.

    I have a Compaq nc6400, I have just brought it from 2 GB's of RAM up
    to 4 GB's of RAM... BIOS see's it all just fine, but openSUSE 11.0/KDE
    3.50.10 only see 3.3 GB's

    Any ideas

    You run a 32 bit operating system. Best install the 64 bit version if
    your processor can do that. That will be able to get to to a bit more:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit#Memory_limitations

    If you are already running 64 bit, it could be a limitation on your
    motherboard and a bios update *might* help.

    Yepper, my current is 32 bit, downloading the 64 bit as we speak. Will
    it be a simple upgrade?

    Doubt it. As always, take a backup, try and if it fails do a new install
    and restore the data.

    Don't format your /home

    I don't think the answer is that simple, I run 32 bit kernel but still
    see 4GB memory, my opensuse 11.0 machine is currently poweroff so I can't
    check, but I have one 10.3-32bit that have 4GB mem up and running.

    ws46163:> ssh home 'ssh bblin4 "uname -r;free"'
    2.6.22.18-0.2-bigsmp
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 4151696 3450936 700760 0 284180 1495136
    -/+ buffers/cache: 1671620 2480076
    Swap: 2104472 1380056 724416

    As you can see, the kernel is bigsmp , use yast and search for kernel, maybe
    it help to install that kernel if you don't run it.

    If you upgrade to 64-bit you will get a number of problems with other software,
    like win32 codecs and maybe some network drivers, flash maybe, I gave it up
    and run only 32-bit on my workstations, but have a dual boot option for 64 bit.

    If you will try 64-bit, just add a new partition for the root, make a new
    install of opensuse 11.0-64 there, but don't format the old partitions,
    and opensuse will configure the boot menu for you.

    When I installed my current 64 bit 11.0 I also installed the 32 bit
    libraries. It's an option in YaST.
    Everything runs just fine.

    All multimedia, Java, Flash, just fine.

    What problems did you specificaly encounter? I have 64bit (I have a new
    PC, did you know) and am watching movies both downloaded and on sites. I
    have not yet tried mp3 yet, so no idea there.

    With 8BG I won't even attempt to run 32 bit. (Hey, perhaps I can run 4
    Linux sessions. One on each core and give each 2GB)

    So, the OS has allocated about 3.5G to user processes. Of course, this
    number does /not/ include the size of the OS kernel itself. To find that,
    you'll have to get the boot up messages generated by the kernel when it
    goes to allocate it's own memory.

    So, try

    dmesg | grep '[Mm]emory:'

    and report back.

    FWIW, my 4G system shows...
    ~ $ dmesg | grep '[Mm]emory:'
    Memory: 3363360k/4194304k available (6215k kernel code, 43080k reserved,
    2017k data, 392k init, 2490048k highmem)
    Freeing unused kernel memory: 392k freed

    OK, so your kernel only sees 3.5G of memory. Looking at the specs for the
    NC6400 (at
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/en...-77984107.html),
    I see that it says "Graphic Subsystem Video Card Memory: Up to 512MB Hyper
    Memory (dedicated and shared system memory)". It looks like the 512MB (or
    0.5 GB) of "shared system memory" used by the graphics subsystem is the
    missing memory that the kernel doesn't see.

    So, it looks like that is your answer: your graphics card takes 512MB of
    system memory away from you /before/ the OS loads. The OS gets the
    remaining 3.5GB of memory, and keeps a few MB for itself. The remaining
    3.5- GB is available for user programs, buffers and caches.

    That would make sense, my DVD's play like nothing you have watched.

    Thanks for all of you hep

    Does that mean they play very good or very bad? If it is now very good
    and you still need a bit of memory, you can change it in your BIOS.

    Also a new card is not THAT expensive. As I do not play games on my PC,
    I just picked the cheapest NVidia card that I could use. Bit more
    expensive then the cheapest, because I needed two (well, actualy three)
    connections.

    Also sorry that I made you download the 64bit for no reason. I thought
    about the video card, but then thought that you were already using
    memory and thus would have already seen that it used part of your
    memory, so that could not be it.

    Amazing video quality.....

    It turns out the HP has certain things disabled in the BIOS.

    No need to be sorry, it took about 45 minutes, and I now have a
    copy..no biggie

    If you did not have that quality, my guess is that it used less memory
    before. e.g. only 64mb or even less. Now that it has more to use, it
    uses more
