Re: Squeeze X86 with 4GByte RAM?

try find options about big memory, PAE in the BIOS -> After installing RAM at first I saw in BIOS and it looked all of 4096MByte. So what about BIOS?

How could I see what is in the kernel - Bigmem and PAE? As I wrote I installed and tried "Linux 2.6.32 for PCs with 4GB+ RAM" "linux-image-2.6.32-5-686-bigmem" Package.

try find options about big memory, PAE in the BIOS, it seems to me that It's just compatible problems.

Does squeeze have both the bigmem and PAE kernel in the source? To my understanding they should be for the same situation, but I don't have squeeze to confirm.  If there are, you can try both.
