  • Thread-topic: dom0 incorrect mem size

Hey all,
just compiled xen 3.4.2 and linux  I followed the instructions on the Xen wiki to get the install running.
my issue here is that in my grub memnu config i set dom0_mem=512M
when i login to the dom0 and i do a free -m i get that the system only has 432 under the total section.
booting into the stock debian kernel 2.6.26-2-amd64 kernel gives me 8192 free memory for i did not limit that.
when i run xm info |grep memory under the xen kernel I get the following.
total_memory           : 8191
free_memory            : 7578
node_to_memory         : node0:7578
the server only has 8gb of memory installed which is confirmed via the system bios.
is there anyway to figure out what is going on here?
