Hi,I use:FreeBSD 7.0-R on i386 server with motherboard S5000VSA and 6GB RAM onboard. BIOS version - 88 (the latest)Kernel includes: options MAXMEM=(6*1024*1024)
You generally shouldn't touch MAXMEM as it's autotuned.
And FreeBSD reports only: real memory = 2680160256 (2556 MB) avail memory = 2617892864 (2496 MB) Why? What is wrong that FreeBSD sees only about 2.5GB instead of 6GB?
Having only 2.5 GB is a bit severe (do you have lots of PCI hardware? video cards with lots of memory?), but PAE could be your solution. See here:
