Re: [Xen-users] Xen dom0 memory

So if it's not PAE, and I have already tried the grub patch and recompile,  what could it be?  I added the volatile clause to the cont variable and my xen system still thinks it only has 3199 MB of memory.

You'll have to use a PAE enabled kernel to get the full 4GB of RAM as
the pci-memory resides below the 4GB boundary and will prevent using
of your full physical memory without PAE.

That's a common problem but it doesn't apply in this case since he's using 
x86_64.  Assuming the version of Xen is built for 64-bit then there's no 
PAE / non-PAE distinction.  x86_64 effectively has PAE switched on all the
