RAM supported in UBUNTU linux 10.04

Asked by Linux_Cheeta on 2010-09-15

I'm having a RAM of 4 GB in my laptop but Ubuntu linux is only showing me 2.9 GB of ram. Please let me know how much of RAM is supported in this version of linux.

Question information

You have most likely installed the 32 bit version and only 4GB total (graphics, system and RAM) memory is usable. Suggest you install 64 bit version.

Andrew Taylor suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #669: “I have 4GB or more of RAM but can't see it in Ubuntu. How can I enable support for more than 3GB ? Do I need a 64 bit edition of Ubuntu ?”.

Can you help with this problem?
