Hello.

I am writing a program, and in while in the process of desinging it, I got to thinking about how much RAM I would have to work with. I know the sl-c3100 (the model I have), comes with 64MB of RAM, but I'm unsure how much of that gets used up by the OS etc... Anyway, I went to system info and checked the memory tab, and I'm seeing that on my zaurus, 31.3MB is being used and 30.7MB is free.

I only have 2 programs, the dictionary and the notepad set to fast load, so I can't imagine why more than half of my memory is being used up. Is this about average for a sl-c3100 running the default japanese 1.02 ROM? Does the OS and all the background stuff use up HALF of the 64MB?

If you guys could let me know if my situation is normal, I would appreciate it.

Hey, guys.

Thanks for the help. It's good to know that my machine is "normal". smile.gif

So I am interested in trying out a swap file, and I picked up the memory manager applet that Meanie mentioned in his "Customisations" area. It does have a swap file tag, but the "panel" seems to be truncated - the bottom part (under "manage...") seems to be cut off.

So, I was wondering if you guys could point me to a fixed version of that applet?

Thanks again!
