RAM drive in Linux


Hi all! I have a new comp with 4Gb 667 DDR2 RAM, and I need some advice, how to use this memory for maximum boost of my Linux system (Under winXP I use 1Gb ramdrive for temp files, and dll cache). Many thanks.

you probably already have one somewhere like /dev/shm check your /etc/fstab file for a filesystem using tmpfs. you can create additional ones whereever you want, of arbitrary sizes. check the mount page for options you can pass to it
