Megaraid 1.18 has 1 known highmem bug; the "896M works 1024M doesn't" sort of
points in that direction. Does SAP have access to the beta site so I can send a
kernel with that bug fixed ?
Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2001-12-06 06:50:20 EST
NB: It worked flawlessly without any mem= option (using the full 4GB).
Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2002-03-13 08:54:35 EST
Apparently is fixed in current kernels, please close.
