    Is my comp reading upgraded RAM?


    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    processor : 0
    vendor_id : GenuineIntel
    cpu family : 6
    model : 15
    model name : Intel(R) Celeron(R) M CPU 520 @ 1.60GHz
    stepping : 6
    cpu MHz : 1600.187
    cache size : 1024 KB
    fdiv_bug : no
    hlt_bug : no
    f00f_bug : no
    coma_bug : no
    fpu : yes
    fpu_exception : yes
    cpuid level : 10
    wp : yes
    flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss tm pbe nx lm constant_tsc up pni monitor ds_cpl tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr lahf_lm
    bogomips : 3203.82
    clflush size : 64


    It should be 1 MB now, so I'm thinking the 520 @ 1.60 GHz is just a hard written title, while the cache size of 1024 Kb indicates that both RAM cards are being read. Just not sure, since nothing actually says RAM.

    Uhhh...this is your CPU info...and besides bus-speed compatibility, has little relation to your system RAM.

    That cache size is a type of memory ON the CPU called L2 cache - it runs at a much higher speed than your RAM. And 1024K = 1MB = *A LOT* less than how much RAM you have.

    Try:

    Code:
    cat /proc/meminfo

    Execute this
    Code:
    free -m
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You could also try:
    Code:
    dmidecode -t memory
    or simply
    Code:
    dmidecode
    and then search for entry that describes installed Memory Device(s).

    Thanks all! It's working.

    Pavlo, dmidecode does not work on Suse for me, FYI.
