    Fedora 8 Aperture Beyond 4 GB on boot

    Thank you for your time and assistance.

    I just noticed after applying a number of updates/system configuration changes this past week that I am receiving the following message when I boot to my Fedora 8 drive:

    Aperture beyond 4 GB.

    Is this a memory problem? I have 2 GB of 800 Mhz DDR 2 chips on the system, but I can't imagine Fedora is using all of that on boot. The system itself boots and performs as usual otherwise. Anyone else seen this issue?

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    This was taken after startup while the system was grabbing updates. Is there a way to monitor it during boot up when the message is received?

    More message details:

    Aperture beyond 4 GB. Ignoring.
    Red Hat nash version 6.0.19 starting.
    exception Emask .... frozen.

    then OS boots
