Re: [rhelv6-list] RHEL6 x86 on system with 4 GB memory

I have Red Hat 6 x86 installed on a Pentium 4 system with 4 GB system memory. Although the default kernel has PAE capability (no modules in lsmod but it's a requirement for the x86 variant so it's likely compiled in) it claims total system memory is about 3.3GB (via top or gnome performance monitor). How do you get RHEL6 to see >= 4GB memory? Is it a kernel argument or something else?

Does the system have an onboard graphics subsystem which might be snaffling some of your system RAM?
