Thread: what's the max memory the OpenSUSE 11.2 support?

  1. #1

    Default what's the max memory the OpenSUSE 11.2 support?

    I tried to install Opensuse 11.2 in my workstations.
    It's OK for our first one which is 16 GM memory
    But it only recongnized 24 GB for our second machine which has 32 GB memory
    However the windows 7 can recongnize the full 32 GB memory

    So is there any way to support more than 24 GB?

    Hi
    What is the output from the command;
    Code:
    uname -r
    Also what CPU are you using (model number)

    32bit openSUSE will suport up to 64Gb (with PAE).
    64bit openSUSE will support up to 256Tb .

    How do you determine how much memory your machine recognizes?

    32bit openSUSE will suport up to 64Gb (with PAE).
    Additional info: pae is offered by the "Desktop-Kernel".

    I think the 64 bit version doesn't need PAE. Am I right?
    In fact I only installed the default components.
    I don't know why there is only 24GB showed..

    That is correct. Maybe some BIOS-setting prevents the whole RAM being addressed?
