Assuming a 2.4.x kernel on ia32, is it possible to malloc memory chunks > 2GB?
If not, is there any way to change this via /proc or kernel recompile?
(I don't think so because size_t is 4 bytes, but I need to ask ...)
Can I assume that this particular limitation does not exist on ia64?
Pointers to documentation (other than the kernel sources ;-) are also welcome.
