I’m new to linux, and have been happily using openSUSE for about a month, and just noticed that the system is only using half my ram. I have two 125mb ram sticks in the computer, but according to System Monitor, the system thinks it only has 213.2MiB total. If I go to Yast and click “Hardware Information” it shows all 512mb. It also works properly in XP.
I am using a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop with AMD Turion 64 processor but am using the 32bit version of openSUSE. Do you think it would work under the 64bit version? (the live CD wouldn’t work for me, so I couldn’t test it)
Any other ideas?
