I just tried "mem=4024M" and the machine is running fine but:
[frankcox at mutt ~]$ free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3342416 702628 2639788 0 16480 289760
-/+ buffers/cache: 396388 2946028
Swap: 2031608 0 2031608
I have more ram now than I did with "mem=2G" but I seem to have lost 760mb;
I'm a lot closer to where I want to be, though.
Thanks for sharing your idea!
