I have some doubt in use of near, far and huge pointers in Linux.
My current machine is P4 on intel915 chipset.
I not completely aware of memory segment in intel8086 but do it applies to P4 also? If yes, how we manages so large memory?
Do near, far and huge pointers carry any significance in Linux, since these were for dos ( as per my knowledge)? or there is one standard pointer in Linux , nohing like near,far ?
Are we based on flat memory model in linux?
