Android & tmpfs


I have one of the early, early HTC Dreams which is critically short of memory perpetually. It's rooted and rund CyanogenMod-6.0, so I can do stuff.

df shows this
Code:
Filesystem   Size      Used   Available   Use%   Mounted on
tmpfs        47.7M     0      47.7M       0%     /dev
tmpfs        47.7M     0      47.7M       0%     /mnt/asec
That's HALF the ram! Not Used! or else it's lying. Did anyone get to the bottom of this one? How do I sort it?

TMPFS does not actually consume any memory unless it actually requires it (to contain data). As you can see from the output there, the "Used" size is zero for both mountpoints, so none of your RAM (or at least, nothing worth mentioning) is being used up.
