    Subjecttmpfs?
    Date
    Hello,

    I've configured my kernel (2.4.13-ac8) to use tmpfs, but it seems that it
    only uses half my physical memory (64 of 128MB).

    >From Configure/help
    /*
    Tmpfs is a file system which keeps all files in virtual memory.

    In contrast to RAM disks, which get allocated a ficed aount of physical
    RAM, tmps grows and shrinks to accommodate the files it contains and is able
    to swap unneeded pages out to swap space.
    */

    Well, it doesn't grows, neither shrinks, but maybe it's only me because I'm
    a newbie with this. How does tmpfs works, and how do I configure it
    correctly.

    Thank you in advance,
    Norberto
