A1SRi-2758f and 2.2.4: Under 512 megabytes of ram detected



  • On my Supermicro A1SRi-2758f equipped with 4GB of RAM, running NanoBSD from a CF card,

    with v2.2.4 I get "2097152K of memory above 4GB ignored" and ">>> Under 512 megabytes of ram detected. Not enabling APC." It stops after configuring the third interface, complaining that "kern.ipc.nmbclusters limit reached".

    with v2.2.3 all is running perfectly; in dmesg I see this:
    real memory  = 4294967296 (4096 MB)
    avail memory = 4035674112 (3848 MB)
    also hw.physmem: 4229382144

    :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

    Something stupid with the first message at the beginning of the boot, "2097152K of memory above 4GB ignored" - the system has only 4GB, there's nothing above. What's that non-existing 2GB it's ignoring?



  • I was planning to use this version to install on my newly built hardware using the same motherboard and Mini-box M350  :-[



  • Is this ECC RAM memory or normal?
    Are this 2 x 2 GB or only 1 x 4 GB RAM?
    Is this a 32Bit or 64Bit OS on the USB Stick? (perhaps you tool one time a false image?)



  • It's ECC, 1x4GB.

    Shit… it's i386, thanks for the tip!

    Likes me before!



  • Lesson learned though. This seems to be more and more important.
