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



Since your system is very old, you should upgrade your BIOS first.
For example, on old HP DL380 G4 server, you can only get about 3.4G ram,
after upgrading, you can get 3.94G.

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