Hi:

Knoppix was creating ramdisk after hardisk install.

solution:

umount /initrd
umount /dev/shm

i created a script and copied it to /etc/rc5.d as S95misc


Now i have more memory free

What was the script? I see all my memory gobbled. Sorry if it's obvious question.......

I think the script was
umount /initrd
umount /dev/shm

how do I check if a ramdisk is being used? (in /dev/ or /mnt/?) And if after a HDD install, are the above commands the *right* ones to use?
