    Memorymap issue in powerpc:can't allocate more than 256MB for DRAM module


    Hi all

    I have an mpc8360e processor (has e300 core and QE) for our networking application. I have to use 1GB DRAM module in my board, but u-boot for powerpc is not supporting that. It is supporting only 256MB DRAM module.

    And in kernel, /proc/meminfo gives me only 256MB.

    Is it a processor limitation? Is there any other way to do memory map, than address translation method?

    Please help me out to solve this

    Regards

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sorry, but I don't know about the limitations of this chip. You really need to contact the manufacturer, or distributor, for that sort of information.
