Just wondering if there are there any known issues with detecting the
memory. We have an AMD Opteron dual processor machine, and Dragonfly
only sees 2 GB with 4 GB in the machine. This is Dragonfly
v126.96.36.1991.g48d80-DEVELOPMENT. We tried with both a regular default
kernel that installed from a snapshot ISO image and an SMP enabled
kernel that I compiled.
It also only sees 2GB on Dragonfly 2.4.1-release.
We tested with 4GB and 5GB of RAM.
The BIOS sees the full amount of memory.
The motherboard is a Iwill DK8S2-SATA with two single core AMD
