Memory (RAM)

  • The Gentoo packages memtest86 and memtest86+ provide tests for the memory in your computer. However, there is no way to run these programs from a running system. They must be ran from a special bootloader: the Gentoo packages basically install that bootloader and add an option to GRUB to start the tests.
