Hello,

anybody here using a Pegasos II board with more memory then the original 256MB bank? I tried combinations of several banks (no go - from segv to noboot) and also 512 and 1GB Kingston modules. Nothing works...

So, is here anybody using one or two 512 or better 1GB memory modules in his Pegasos II (I have openfirmware 1.2) which works (perhaps even tested with memtester? :-) ) and could kindly tell me the exact name/manufacturer/timings/etc.?

Thank you very much!
M

Sorry for bumping: but is here really nobody using the Pegasos with 1GB or more of memory? I don't even want to think about sth. like openoffice with 256MB ;-)

Also have problems with 1024 Mb on pegasos II. Single 512 Mb memory works OK.

My experience so far with Kingston KVR266x72C25/512 is random hangs (with or w/o xorg running) when I have the second stick in. Very reproducible with the SUSE 10.0 default kernel. Still troubleshooting on the Gentoo install / kernel config.

There is some info out there on "working" and "non-working" memory for Pegasos. Most seems to be on the morphos site, and to pertain to pegasos I.

On crucial.com I see for pegasos II: 512 MB sticks
DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • UNBUFFERED • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 64Meg x 64
