Wasn'nt there a hard limit at 2GByte main memory for Tlaser systems?
At least the code FreeBSD adopted from NetBSD cannot handle more. Of course
it could be that this limit has been removed from NetBSD in the meantime,
I have insufficient time :-( to keep up with the various developments
My 8400 was quite unhappy when I had > 2GB installed (it had 12GB and 8 CPUs
at the time). We no longer have it inhouse, and I have not tried any of
the *BSDs on the GS60E we now have sitting in our lab.
