Can anyone help me figure out how to make use of the missing GB?
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 12 11:05:30 UTC 2007

this looks like a 32 bit binary to me.

You either need a 64 bit binary or you need to enable PAE.

Just build a custom kernel for 64 bits.


Ahh... To do this, do I just specify the CPUTYPE in the /etc/ make.conf
as:
CPUTYPE=amd64
?

No. Add options SMP to GENERIC or use the SMP conf file that's already there (and includes GENERIC). Then recompile the kernel per the handbook.

That was the first thing I did. This is the kernel that's failing to see the memory. :-/

Is there anything else I might need to do too?
