    SubjectLinux and memory ECC on i386
    (Semi-off topic, but I would appreciate any help...)

    What does Linux do with memory parity and ECC errors on
    the i386 architectures? I find no references to same
    in the 2.0.x kernel sources. (There are references for
    some of the non-i386 architectures.)

    The hardware in question is an Intel PentiumPro with the
    Natoma (82440FX) chipset (Intel VS440FX motherboard).
    The technical specs say that ECC is supported if parity
    memory is used.

    Some of these hardware docs are also ambiguous.
    Would someone more knowledgeable than I be willing to go
    off-mailing-list to help me clear this up?

    Thanks,
    Doug
