Linux: Memory Upgradtion problems
Posted on 1997-02-25
How do I make Linux recoginize my memory upgradations?
I recently upgraded my memory from 16MB to 40MB. I've tried
typing linux mem=40M at the lilo boot but the system hangs
while adding swap space.
My version of linux also hogs memory irrespective of the
number of users/processes. Initially the system is quite
fast but as time progesses, it becomes slower & slower.
Maybe swapping of pages from memory is not as efficient as
it should be.
Kindly suggest a solution.
I'm using the following version of Linux :
Redhat Linux Release 3.0.0 ( Picasso )
I'm on a Compaq with a 75MHz Pentium Processor
