Slackware and Gentoo only detect 1GB out of 3.5GB of RAM
I recently upgraded my RAM to the max I heard a 32-bit system can handle (3.5 GB), but when I installed Gento 2005.0 and ran `cat /prc/meminfo` I only see 904504 kB! Same thing with `top`. This is not good. I thought it was maybe a Gentoo thing, so I tried it with Slackware 10.1 and still the same result.
Now granted I read some problems on here that said I should use the big Mem kernel, but I was under the impression that was only if I had >4GB. What is the solution?
