Ubuntu: Ubuntu 14.04(32-bit) : Is it necessary to reinstall ubuntu after adding more RAM?



Question:

I have 2 GB RAM , I want to add 2 GB of more RAM. Will it be necessary to reinstall ubuntu 14.04 after adding more RAM? I do not want to reinstall as well as I need ubuntu to fully use the newly added RAM.


Solution:1

From the comments...

The user wants to upgrade from 2G RAM to 4G RAM, and asks if anything else is required. They're running 32-bit 14.04. If they add more than 4G total RAM, they will have to install the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. We discussed it, and decided that the user would increase their swap partition (or swapfile) from 2G to 4-8G.

Update #1:

Everything is running fine now.
