2010-11-25 10:59:21     Allocation failure / total amount of memory

Hello,

 

I've got problems loading an application with the 2010R1-RC3 release

that started with an earlier release. The kernel says that there is not

enought memory (allocation failed).

 

"free" gives me these values (2010R1-RC3):

 

              total         used         free       shared      buffers

  Mem:        16880         6964         9916            0           76

 

and on an 2009 kernel (different settings!):

 

              total         used         free       shared      buffers

  Mem:        21680         5008        16672            0           76

 

Shouldn't the "total" column be the same value? The board has 32 Megs of RAM,

so I would expect something like 33554 or so.

 

Note: This is the DNP/5370 board for which the support was just added

to the SVN trunk. So it may well be that I made a mistake with the

board files.

Ok, found the reason myself: the total mem managed by the kernel is reduced by the image size. I'll have to reduce the image or move some stuff somewhere else.
