Dear bsd people,

I have this amd64 system running freebsd 6.1 with 1 GB
of RAM and everything worked very well. Then I've
added some  more ram, 2 gb extra, to be precise and
aft first it seemd everything worked fine. I could
load larger files and my java apps didn't give me
out-of -memory problems anymore.

But everytime I want to upgrade my ports or compile a
new kernel, the machine would freeze and the only way
to go was to use the reset button. I don't like the
look of that.

Has anyone had similar experiences? I've had two 512MB
corsair memory banks, and added two 1GB banks (oem).

I find it really strange that I can use the bigger RAM
but compiling gives problems. Could it also be that
the banks could be attached better in my motherboard?

What should I do now? Continue using it, without
portupgrading or compiling a new kernel or ask a new
pair of banks at the store?
