Does anyone know anywhere I can get memory tested? I believe I've got a
defective 32m board.
I've been crying on your shoulders for a good week now, regarding my sig
11 problems and other issues with my box. I believe I've nailed down
this time. REALLY.
I installed RH 5.2 and when I rebooted, with kernel 2.0.34, my box came
up and appeared to be very stable. I compiled a number of kernels to
test the sig 11 issue. Things looked great. I then upgraded my kernel
to 2.0.36 which apparently recognizes my full 128m memory without a
modification to lilo or any boot parms. I then attempted to recompile
my kernel and got a sig 11. I then added an 'append="mem=64m"' to my
lilo.conf, executed lilo and reboot. Booted great and my box has been
working like a charm for a number of days now. I've recompiled a couple
of kernels and put it through some other stuff to test it and things
Therefore, I believe I've got a bad memory card, but since pentiums
require pairs, I've got to figure out which one is bad. I could swap
them around with the first two chips, but I hate to do all that and risk
