Re: memory recognition

I installed the bigmem kernel ( 2.6.24-1-686 ).  Thought this is the same kernel version that my system has been running on, when I try to boot to the bigmem kernel, the boot process creeps along at an incredibly slow rate and appears to hang during dev assignment / configuration, though it seems that if I would have left it going for a half an hour it might have made it further.

My question is simple.  Am I naive to think that the bigmem version of the same kernel version would be similar enough to the standard kernel to have no issues with my hardware?

I have 8gb of memory, bios sees it.  Lenny only sees 3.2 gb.
Is there a different version of the kernel or parameter to make it see all of my memory?

If you compile your kernel by hand, look at menuconfig for CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G
