Configuring Linux to recognize all of the memory available

[ Edited ]

This article gives a detailed explanation on configuring Linux to  recognize memory till 64GB.It should work for most of the distros since all of them share the same kernel code

Re: Configuring Linux to recognize all of the memory available

The article is from 2007... Nowadays most distributions will come in both 64bit or 32-bit+PAE kernel versions. So no matter what you use, you can access all of your ram (as long as your hardware is capable of doing so).

 

The 4GB 32-bit barrier is just a Windows thing since Microsoft refuses to enable PAE in their consumer OS'es.
