Available Memory issues ..
I'm having an issue where only 1Gb of the installed 2Gb is being used by pfSense..
pfSense Version: 2.0-RC1 (i386)
built on Thu Mar 31 18:57:33 EDT 2011
real memory = 2147483648 (2048 MB)
avail memory = 1011212288 (964 MB)
Can anyone help me here??
Perhaps you have a motherboard with integrated graphics and the BIOS allocates about 1GB to the integrated graphics adapter.
Probably 8MB would be more than ample for use with pfSense.
I will have to check that, but it is a 19" rack mount appliance box with a low end video onboard (vga) card.
I just physically checked the box and to my embarrassment the box only has 1Gb of RAM in it .. must have been high when I built it hehehe :)
