PS3: anaconda fails due to lack of memory
Last modified: 2009-02-25 00:38:45 EST
Description of problem:
On PS3 anaconda fails due to lack of memory.
With the current rawhide (Fedora 11) kernel the PS3 hotplug memory add fails and the system boots with just the 128 MiB of boot mem.
On Feb 17, 2009, two patches that fix this problem were merged to linux-2.6.29-rc6:
powerpc/mm: Fix numa reserve bootmem page selection
powerpc/ps3: Move ps3_mm_add_memory to device_initcall
These are (obviously) in the latest rawhide kernel, so they shouldn't cause you trouble in the future. :)
