Re: DL580 G5

Hi, as far as I can say it should work.

http://www.novell.com/products/server10/techspecs.html

Release notes for 10 SP2 only mentions some issues for 32-bit.

What if you install and then add the rest of the DIMMs? Does it boot then?

If not, maybe there is a high-mem something you need to set?

Re: DL580 G5

Cool.

Well this problem is also for example seen when installing an OS via the smartstart CD - were you doing that?

I am not so awesome on these kinds of things - but maybe the linux kernel used on the installation media/boot system doesn't support that much RAM.
