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

Thank you in advance,
