Why 4Gb RAM only seen as 1Gb withing LMDE3 (Deb9.4)

#1 Post by k829king »

on a Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) 3 Cindy system i.e. Debian 9.4 based running Cinnamon the unit has 4Gb (though 512Mb shared for graphics) but only 1Gb shows as system total?
BIOS shows 4Gb
MemTest shows 3060Mb
but in LMDE3 System Info shows 1Gib
free -h shows Total Mem: 993M
inxi -Fxn under info: shows Memory 993.1Mib
thoughts?

Ask on the Mint forums, they will have a better idea of what they've broken :D
