Question Show computer memory on Mandriva Powerpack 2011


Hi Guys,

Can't seem to bring up the computer's total memory. Using root, and hardware settings, shows me cash size, nothing else. I'm Going to increase memory size and I should not have to remove a mem stick from the box just to see it's size.

Merry Thanksgiving

System Monitor only shows you the overall amount of ram, not how much is in each slot.

Didn't read the question properly. To bring up system monitor do Alt & F2 then type system monitor or look under Applications--> Tools--> System Tools.
