I have a single-CPU Xeon-based system running FreeBSD's amd64,
along with other computers running various OSs to use and look
Due to the quality of OpenBSD, I switched all my other computers
to OpenBSD and <gasp> even ordered a CD set.
However, this Xeon system is used for heavy numbercrunching; R
routinely gobbles up to 4.5 GB memory. My question is whether
OpenBSD will allow this memory allocation. This is work-related
stuff so I'm hesitant to try without some input.
Please forgive me if the answer is well-known. I spent an hour
Googling but didn't come up with much, especially for 3.9.
Thanks in advance,
