15.0 > System > memtest86 (4.3.7)

Memtest86 is a thorough, stand-alone memory test for x86 architecture
computers. BIOS based memory tests are a quick, cursory check and
often miss many of the failures that are detected by Memtest86.

This package installs a bootable image to /boot/memtest86.bin
which is similar to the kernel images in the same directory.

LILO users: Append this to your /etc/lilo.conf:

image = /boot/memtest86.bin
label = memtest86

Then run `/sbin/lilo` to update the boot loader.
Don't forget to re-run `/sbin/lilo` if you upgrade this package.

GRUB Legacy users: Append something like this to your

title memtest86
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/memtest86.bin

GRUB 2 users: Auto-detected by the /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86 script.
Run `grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg` to update the boot menu.

See /usr/doc/memtest86-$VERSION/README for more info.
