    Highmem_config kernel options

    I have recently installed the 32-bit version of debian testing on my machine. I have a 64-bit processor and 6Gb of RAM but my system only sees up to 4Gb. A few years ago i had installed the 64-bit version of stable, and ended up switching back to 32-bit because it seemed like many programs didnt want to work correctly and i needed 64-bit and 32-bit libraries installed for certain programs. At least thats what i remember, but it has been a while. So im trying to rebuild a 3.1 kernel and using menuconfig to up the allowable memory but the only choice it gives me is 4G. Should i go ahead and reinstall the debian 64-bit version? is there any way to allow a 32-bit system to see more than 4G? My old system, which was 32-bit had a rebuilt kernel which saw all 6.

    Hi I don't know if you have fixed this or not, I found this that may help RAM I know this is a Ubuntu how to, but it should work with debian also.
