WS-X6148AGE-TX module install

We would like to install the module in object in a WS-C6509 with two WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE.
The minimum CatOs version to permit at ws-x6148ge-tx to go online is 8.(4), actually the CatOs version installed is 7.1(1). The Flash memory size is 32768K, we see that the 8.x version require a 256M to work and the MSFC2. Is this right? Is it possible to do a hardware upgrade to permit the consequent software upgrade on WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE? Or do we need to buy two new Sup32?

To support the WS-X6148A-GE-TX module under CatOS you need 8.4(1) at the minimum.
Now the first thing to make clear is to get your Sup II configuration. It is unlikely that you have WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE only (this is the motherboard). In addition to that you may also have PFC2 and MSFC2 (daugterboards). After you issue the CatOS "show module" command you may see something like this for the Sup II located at the position 1:
Console (enable) >
show module
Mod Slot Ports Module-Type Model Sub Status
--- ---- ----- ------------------------- ------------------- --- --------
1 1 2 1000BaseX Supervisor WS-X6K-SUP2-2GE yes ok
15 1 1 Multilayer Switch Feature WS-F6K-MSFC2 no OK
Mod Sub-Type Sub-Model Sub-Serial Sub-Hw
--- ----------------------- ------------------- ----------- ------
1 L3 Switching Engine II WS-F6K-PFC2 XXXX X.X
If this is the case you have both PFC2 and MSFC2 fitted.
You can get the ammount of memory fitted in Sup II via the "show version" CatOS command down under the heading "DRAM Total". As from the release notes the CatOS 8.X version is supported by both original default 128MB and later 256MB DRAM sizes (only if you have large number of routes you need 256MB of DRAM).
If you feel uncertain will you please post both "sh mod" and "sh ver" outputs.
