how to enable more memory

Hi all, I used to have 1 GB memory and used Studio64, then I treated myself to another 3GB memory and obviously it wasn't recognised in Studio. So I tried to recomile the kernel with Big mem enabled. I tried it many times, however, it always fails. Then I decided to reinstall the Studio hoping that with the new hardware the installer will pick up the 4GB memory during the installation. It didn't. At the moment I'm distro-upgrading, and I'll probably have to try recompiling again. 1. Is there any other way of enabling high memory? (I am pretty sure there isn't but just in case I'm asking) 2. What kernel would you recommend for studio and what kernel parameters to choose to have real-time and all necessary things for sound. ? regards sycamorex

btw, I've got dual-core

Use the amd64 version for large amounts of RAM

The amd64 version of the 64 Studio installer should see all 4GB of RAM - please let us know if it doesn't. (64-bit x86 systems don't have the division into lower and upper memory).
