Memory consumption of 4.1 FE

Post by Gregor »

Has anyone who has both 4.1.6 and FE classic, compared whether there is any difference between them in memory (RAM) consumption? How much free RAM do you have after FE has loaded itself?

With 4.1.6 I have been able to get around 79MB free RAM by removing useless modules from Kickstart and by making rarely used partitions non-automounting and by minimizing disk buffers for others.

On a 128MB system, after 4.1FE loads I have about 76 MB available.
But I do have quite a few partitions, a working network and a 1024x768x24bit screen + anything that it loads by default (have not done any serious nodding so far).

disabling kernel modules did not give back extra RAM, at least in my case.

it is probably better to reduce the screen resolution and depth + turn off composition (in case you have the right gfx card)

Ok, thanks for your answer! Sounds quite similar to 4.1.6...
