my operation system is redhat-as4, mysql-4.0.25-0
when I set the default memory usage for mysql to 2G, I get the following error;
070425 14:08:43 mysqld started
InnoDB: Fatal error: cannot allocate 2147500032 bytes of
InnoDB: memory with malloc! Total allocated memory

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong
and this may fail.
It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_connections = 3743343 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.
Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
Bogus stack limit or frame pointer, fp=0xbfffec98, stack_bottom=0x383d, thread_stack=131072, aborting backtrace.
Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...
thd->query at 0x79636e65 is invalid pointer
The manual page at http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Crashing.html contains
information that should help you find out what is causing the crash.
070425 14:08:43 mysqld ended
I've searched around, the direction is to modify the source code for innodb or glibc:
is there any other ways to resolve this issue?
it should be a common use to run mysql on an i386 with 4G+ memory, I think.
