Over 2.5 GB ram problem
I just upgraded my old Intel P4 system with a 3Ghz multithread (2
processors?) processor and 4 GB ram. I am running Debian Wheezy with a
KDE desktop. My present kernel is Linux-3.8-1=686-pae. From reading, I
think I need to change the kernel to the bigmem version but all of the
packages shown are for much older versions (or they seem to be). If I
install the linux-image-686-bigmem dummy package will it automatically
pick the latest kernel version or not? If not what do I do?
Note: Reason for doing this; cheap used parts that turn a bucket of
bolts into a reasonably useful system.
