Hello, maybe this regards the kernel issue, but haven't anywhere to post it.
Recently, after having a lots of system crash i discovered, that ram in my
computer has flaws(I mean some of the cells are broken, and can't access
them, sorry for my english). The thing is I don't wanna to buy a new one. I
thougt it might be possible to install a kernel module which would use my
memory, in such a way that it would ommit the bad storege places, if he
knows them them. Is it possible, or it is rather science fiction ?
