Question Memtest-86 v3.1


I am an end user with Linux. 95 hours ago I started Memtest-86 v3.1 Novel SuSE Linux 9.2 It is not hanging up or restarting. Is this normal to be taking so long or did I not configure the program correctly? The computer is AMD 950, 133 256 RAM. I went to the AMD help page on the test but I am not having any of the issues stated on the site.

How long is the test suppose to last?

Thank-you for your time

From memtest86 site
Execution Time
The time required for a complete pass of Memtest86 will vary greatly depending on CPU speed, memory speed and memory size. Memtest86 executes indefinitely. The pass counter increments each time that all of the selected tests have been run. Generally a single pass is sufficient to catch all but the most obscure errors. However, for complete confidence when intermittent errors are suspected testing for a longer period is advised.
