    SubjectRe: PROBLEM: Incorrect RAM Detected at kernel init
    Date
    I have not been able to get the memory hole turned off at the 16M mark
    Going through some of the Documentation files, I noticed that I can specify
    a ram map with the mem boot option. I know the mem=768M hasn't worked, so
    what about trying the memory map option? Could that be a solution to my
    problem? If so, what would be the proper way to put the command?
    As well I have downloaded the 2.4.18 kernel and in the latest distro of
    Slackware, 10.1, it doesn't want to compile, I can't remember the exact
    error, but it was referenced back to one of the asm headers as the problem.
    I will dig that error up and maybe post based on that to get that kernel
    running.
    As well, going to a 2.6 kernel just in not overly feasable at this time as
    it takes 24 hrs to compile with the state the machine is in right now.
