Am I missing something?

I type:

Code:
emerge memtest86


and everything goes great. Then How do I run it?

I tried

memtest
memtest86
.memtest86

and about a dozen other commands. Nothing.

it's 3.0.?

Thanks[/code]

you run in grub/lilo ...it's a boot option - it's the only way to scan ram effectively :]

you have to add to your lilo/grub config the memtest option and then reboot and select it...

this is my /boot/grub/grub.conf (i use grub):
Code:
default 0
timeout 30
splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=linux
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hde1 /dev/hda=ide-scsi mem=nopentium

title=windows xp
root (hd0,2)
makeactive
chainloader +1

title=Memtest86
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/memtest86/memtest.bin


change the root and kernel options to match your own :]

if you use lilo ...i can't help you ...sorry (but as i know emerge grub prints the instructions at the end of the emerge)

This is what I used for my lilo.conf

# memtest86 begins
image = /boot/memtest86/memtest.bin
label = Memtest86
# memtest86 ends
