Upgraded Lenovo 3000 v200 to 4GB

Now the reason I was on TigerDirect in the first place. I was ordering upgrade memory to take the Lenovo 3000 v200 that I had gotten from them from its stock 2GB to 4GB (max).

It had said that the 32-bit Vista on the machine wasn't going to see it all, but I blew that away immediately...so I didn't care.

I probably should've shutdown down (turned off) laptop before I swapped the memory...instead of doing it while it was in its suspended state. But, I had a brain fart.

Booting up, I saw that it was 4GB in the BIOS...but then only 3GB in Ubuntu. After a quick search, I found that the desktop kernel is config'd that way. And, the solution was to install the server kernel.

I did that, and now it sees all 4GB. I had gone 32-bit because of certain repos...namely Boxee....didn't support 64-bit.

After booting up, I tested a few key apps to make sure there wasn't any issue in the installing the server kernel. Namely, VirtualBox (booting my XP VM), Boxee (clicked the wrong shortcut), Skype+Webcam (sudo modprobe gspca_m5602 and then starting skype with the v4lcompat1.so PRELOAD). And, then confirm that it'll suspend when I close the lid, and resume when I open it.

Now off to stir up some other trouble....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
