Hmm, it doesn't look right here. Looks like there is about 1gb installed in there and not 1.5gb but I might be wrong.

I remember a short while ago, I was supposed to have 512mb installed on a server but it show up as 384mb. In my case, it was later found to be faulty RAM.

errrr - it might also be possible, that your kernel simply doesn't support more than 1 gig.... go re-compile your own kernel... and make sure to enable the option(s) for big memory support.

I kinda had the same 'problem' with a 2gig/redhat server....


cheers,

Got a reply a couple of hours ago from Nocster support.

Apparently they sloted only 1GB RAM and realise the mistake when I email to them, they are ordering the missing 500MB RAM and will be available next week.

yeah, but probably not more than 3 minutes or less if they are fast enough and do not take a coffe break in the middle

I will give it a little more. You need to shut down the system, unscrew and remove a panel, install the RAM, put everything back and turning it on.

Maybe 10 minutes including shutdown and bootup time ? But it sure is worthwhile.
