I just installed antiX M11 486 to a ext4 partition on an SD card on my Asus 4G Surf mini-netbook. It's fast on this small pc and I like it. I did notice that only half my RAM is recognized, though. I upgraded the RAM to 2 GB and the BIOS shows 2 GB. However the free and top commands in antiX show that I have 903692k of RAM.

Can I change this?

Marty

I see you finally had success. Howdy and Welcome.

Post a
Code:
inxi -F


readout in terminal and post in code tags in next post.

My EEEpc 900 shows all 2 gig of ram in inxi -F readout. I only have 1 gig of ram on this EEEPc 701SD, that I transferred over from my 900, when I installed the 2 gig stick in it.

I'm updating M11 right now so I cannot run that command and year of updates is taking hours on this small pc. Maybe a new kernel will take care of this memory problem.

Maybe try the new 3.3 kernel Anti posted in the forum. I posted my 701 installing it and everything.
It works OK on my 701SD but mine is just a tad bit different 701 yours. Keep the 2.6.31 kernel in case
You need it.

is your kernel for the 701SD on the web?

EDIT:

The 2nd page of that post wouldn't show...I was thinking you might have put the link location there if it was available.

I used the kernel Anti posted on my 701. It is the link in the 1st post of the thread.

Couldn't get page 2. That is strange.

Code:
Testing if code tags work

If you want to install the kernel and everything else is updated, download linux-image-3.3.5-antix.1-486-smp_3.3.5-antix.1-486-smp-10.00.Custom_i386.deb and as root
Code:
dpkg -i linux-image-3.3.5-antix.1-486-smp_3.3.5-antix.1-486-smp-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
apt-get -f install
