Failed to allocate memory recource #6

Asked by Sbn on 2007-08-18

Thats the error message that appears on the screen when booting. My laptop is a dual-core Intel PC, with two memorychips installed; could it be that ubuntu is using only one of them? I've had a feeling my pc is a bit slow being brand new and compared to my old centrino.

In short, no.

To find out how much physical memory the Linux kernel has detected use this command:-

grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo

For example, here's what I get on this laptop:-

alan@hactar:~$ grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 1035552 kB

You can try to run a memory test (it is available from the boot menu of the LiveCD)

Well the result was over 2000000 kb so I guess I don't have a memory problem.
