Full Version: Memory problem with new C-750?
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > Cxx0 General discussions
Hi all,

Just got my new Zaurus C-750 this weekend. Out of the box the "Storage" tab shows 32768kb total and the "Memory" tab shows 62120kb. From the specs both of them should be 64mb. Any ideas before I hire some Ronin to hunt down my Japanese supplier?


Found this link- I think my "problem" is solved-


According to the System Info applet, total memory on the device is 96MB, divided between 32MB of Flash Memory (for storage of programs and the OS) and 64 MB of RAM, i.e. program ececution and data memory. Initially this was confusing; it seems to be at odds with Sharp's original press release and Dynamism's page, which both say that the C750 has 64 MB Flash and the C760 has 128 MB Flash. If you want to see for yourself, here are the Memory, Storage and Version tabs from that applet. Dynamism technial support explained to me that 32 MB of Flash Memory is reserved (and locked) by Sharp for the Operating System, which is why the apparent Flash is only 32 MB. "
Yep, that's correct. Your root filesystem (32mb) does not appear as it is "read only" and so should not change, no pont in making a graph for it.
