[kwlug-disc] 64bit upgrade bugs

Does this have anything to do with not using a ppa kernel? If I recall correctly, I threw 4 gigs into my work laptop and it was only showing as 3.1 gigs available until I switched over to a ppa kernel in ubuntu.  That seemed to do the trick for my issue, which may not be your issue.

Yes, looks like there's something called a PCI memory hole.  It also looks like I'm not getting my 1/2 gig of ram back :).

I wonder if this thread might give you some ideas about where you memory has gone:
