A fix of sorts for PowerBooks with lower RAM slot issues
Authored by: 1amzave on Mar 04, '08 03:21:44PM

Note: I am *far* from Open Firmware expert, so this may well be completely useless, and I *certainly* wouldn't recommend messing with this without a great deal more prior research, but:

From what I (think I) know, if this were to be made persistent, it would likely be done via nvram (non-volatile ram). You can check nvram variables via `nvram -p` - on my system, this lists a variable "ram-size" as a hex number tht reflects the amount of memory I have installed (0x40000000, or one GiB). I *highly* doubt just changing this to whatever your ram size should be would do it, but it seems like it might potentially be involved.

(Also note - I don't have this particular problem, so my system may be different than that of people who do have the problem.)
