how do i view ram size in non graphic debian?
 
Have installed debian base system without X windows.
Is there any command i can use to see the size of physical ram i currently have installed?

free
cat /proc/meminfo
lshw
dmidecode

Does the free command give you the info you want?

When you say ram size do you mean the total amount of ram installed?

Try cat /proc/meminfo.

You will probably need to press shift-pageup to read all the information in text mode.

Edit:Sorry too slow.

Also, top will show you what the system can see; should be the same as what's installed physically.
