pleased to say i just booted ok with a 1gb Kingston KVR400X64C3A/1G
on my thecus rouster none pro
i need to install the software to check its reading 1GB though.
installed the same module and seems to be running fine. What do you use to check if the NAS see's 1gb of RAM?
I am now running the same RAM module also (Kingston KVR400X64C3A/1G).
Everything booted OK and the 5200 modules that use webpages / graphics definitely seem to run faster. I do not know where to start to check the memory stats though. If someone knows how then please share and I will confirm my results.
It did seem as thought the overall total increased from the start of my measuring with the UTILS module until I took a final reading. This was over a period of approx. 30 mins. The DDR module had been installed and the 5200 rebooted for approx. 80 mins at the time I started measuring.
The totals started at around 720 MB and slowly moved up to the 900 MB mark. I have no idea if this movement was an erroneous reading or did the DDR somehow need to 'propagate' into the system - and if that sounds like a totally brainless concept then please cut me the slack a clueless Linux user deserves...
Thanks gonz0. I did the digging to find the UTILS module while you were posting. I have never heard of the concept of 'memory leak' but to have a piece of silicon come up to capacity so slowly like that was kinda strange.
