[Bug 1385038] Re: Corrupted low memory error on Ubuntu 14.04


It bugs my PC too (8GiGs of RAM, 5 passes on memtest without an error).
But the Corrupted memory shows up after resuming from suspend.

  Corrupted low memory error on Ubuntu 14.04

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've read the forum post here regarding this error:
  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1557604 but it's from 2010
  and so am reporting this as a bug.

  I'm receiving relatively infrequent messages in the terminal of
  "Corrupted low memory at ffff88000006598 (6598 phys) = e50000000000"
  across multiple reboots. The error is especially prevalent when system
  load is heavy. Memtest through vendor bios checks out as OK.

  System boots fine, hangs occassionally, and I have to killall -u from
  a rescue terminal to have the GUI restart
