Unhappy Huge Memory Model


Hello,

I am using Red Hat Linux Enterprise 3 (ES).
1) How can I find out if I am using the HugeMem KErnel ?

Reading a Unix book, I typed the following command:

setarch i386

2) What is the impact of this command ?

PT

1) look in /boot/grub/grub.conf to see what kernel you are booting. Or try "uname -r".
2) "setarch" does nothing more than change the value reported by "uname -m". Perhaps some programs or build environment use this value to determine behaviour.
