I am facing an issue with memory allocation.
Host OS: Microsoft Windows XP - Professional x64 Edition - Version 2003 - Service Pack 2.
Host Physical Memory: 8 GB
Guest OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update 5). I am not sure if it is 32 or 64 bits. The
lsb_release -a command says that argument LSB Version: core-3.0-ia32, so I guess that would be 32 bits...
VMware Player Version: 2.5.2 build-156735
I would like that VMware Player could allocate more that 4 GB, but when I go to the setting, it only lists 4 GB. If I choose the "About" option, it actually says that I have 8 GB installed in the host machine.
This VMware image created by someone else and provided to me, apparently done with VMware Workstation 5.
Why can't I allocate 8 GB?
Where is the problem?
In the WMware Player Version, Guest OS or Host OS?
How can I solve this?
I understand that for this version of player there isn't one version for 32 and another for 64 bits.
