As I've seen 64Gb highmem option in kernel, I thought everything should be ok with >4Gb RAM support.
Now I've got 6Gb of RAM on my E6600 workstation and recompiled the kernel. Just changed 4Gb highmem to 64Gb, and all.
After reboot on new kernel system froze on udev start. Ok, I disabled udev, rebooted - well, my E6600 is as speedy as P2 233 could be on modern distro. I mean, I'm using twm as a window manager to get GUI for reasonable time now.
So I grabbed the latest kernel release (188.8.131.52). Cool, now it's like K6-2 400. And I'm supposed to run many virtual machines.
Can someone help with advice other then switch on 64-bit distro
? I know about VL-5.9-pseudo, but it's kinda scary to use that on my production machine.
Motherboard is Intel on i965 chipset.
