Re: Squeeze X86 with 4GByte RAM?
you could try the backported pae kernel I suggested, then
please keep your answers to the list only

I know what Athlon 64 means. I use AMD CPU-s for a long-long years. I
used x64 systems too but I think x86 systems gives me more
compatibility with any softwares so I stayed here. Also I know Linux
systems are able to manage more than 4 GByte of RAM with x86.
So if there is a suitable solution for me, I'd like to stay with x86

Athlon 64 was the processor which introduced the amd64 instruction set,
so you should be able to run that if you want. If you're willing to
re-install, you might as well go with wheezy at this point.
Anyway, with a 4GB system you have to ask yourself whether you really
need that extra 10-12% of memory: does your system swap currently?
64 bits binaries tend to run a little faster yet use a little more
memory (bigger words and pointers), so with a mere 4GB the gain is not
huge. If I were you, I'd either let the system as is (specially if it
runs comfortably under 3.5GB anyway), or parhaps try the PAE kernel
available from backports (currently 3.2+46~bpo60+1, so fairly similar
to the one wheezy uses).
FWIW, I have an Athlon 64 3500+ system which runs fine with the
2.6.36 PAE kernel from mepis11 (a squeeze variant).

I installed 4GByte RAM in my motherboard succesfully. In BIOS I
