So, I've been reading about linux for a while now and I am still a newbie in all this. At the moment I'm learning specifically about server administration, and I've come up with a question about memory in linux.
I was taught that ls -l /proc/kcore should inform me the amount of RAM that is installed in the computer. However, /proc/meminfo should do the same, but the results differ:
BOX4:/proc# ls -l kcore
-r-------- 1 root root 939528192 2011-08-03 16:15 kcore
BOX4:/proc# cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal: 2067480 kB
MemFree: 901352 kB
So, as you can see, the values are different. Am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance,
