Re: Large memory with netbsd 4
Hello. I've got a few I386 machines running NetBSD-3.x and NetBSD-4.x
with 4GB of RAM and they seem to work fine. Ps(1) can't show rss sizes of
more than 2GB, but that appears to be a problem only to the ps(1) program
using a 32-bit signed number to represent the sizes rather than a 32-bit
unsigned number or a 64-bit number. The pci hole is a problem, but 3GB of
RAM seems to be good.
