Linux Does not see the RAM

Got a question again!

I have 128 mb or RAM on my machine. Linux Mandrake 7.2 can see only 64 mb or RAM. How I can make it see all the RAM I have on my computer?

are you using lilo to boot, if so you can add this to your /etc/lilo.conf file:


save it

then run: /sbin/lilo to make the changes from the command line. reboot and it should recognize all your RAM. if you using GRUB or anything else, I am unsure on those.

Check here . It talks about Caldera's eDesktop 2.4, but it should work for you. It tells you to add mem=96M or mem=95M to the kernel line of the menu.lst file. In your case, it would be mem=128M or mem=127M . I hope this helps.
