My Linux machine is having issues with faulty RAM. I ran
PCMemTest-64, and I determined the following patterns:
Now, I have stock Ubuntu which doesn't seem to have the BadRAM patch, and I'm a bit nervous about compiling Linux from scratch. So I'm wondering if there is an easy way to disable these fault RAM addresses using existing tools in GRUB and Linux, for example using the
memmap kernel parameter. I'm happy to lose a bit of RAM other than the faulty addresses (in the order of kilobytes and not gigabytes ideally) to take this shortcut.
- Linux 5.19.0-32
- Grub 2.06
- Ubuntu 22.04
What should I do?
memtest=17kernel parameter (check
memtestis not part of the default kernel?
