Re: Configuration of memory in rp5470

This is most assuredly incorrect:

Slot Num Configured and Slot label for each DIMM (MB)

-------- --------------------------------------------

0a 2a 1a 3a 3b 1b 2b 0b

---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----



EXT 0 512 512 512 512 512 512 512 512

EXT 1 256 256 256 256 256 256 256 256


This is correct:

Extender

Slot Num Configured and Slot label for each DIMM (MB)

-------- --------------------------------------------

0a 2a 1a 3a 3b 1b 2b 0b

---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----



EXT 0 512 256 512 256 256 512 256 512

EXT 1 512 256 512 256 256 512 256 512



You always go from highest capacity dimms in the lowest numbered slots to the lower capacity dimms in higher numbered slots. AND, if possible, balance between the extenders.

Re: Configuration of memory in rp5470

Hi,

your suggestion looks good!

Starting with the 512MB modules you should start like this:

EXT0 - 0A/B
EXT1 - 0A/B

EXT0 - 1A/B
EXT1 - 1A/B

and so on ...

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
