How Much Memory left?
« on: December 19, 2003, 03:11:32 pm »
As I load more and more stuff on my C750, I\'m starting to get concerned about space. Is there an easy way to check to see how much space is left in RAM? I imagine there will be a sysinfo type app in the final release, but meanwhile is there a linux command that will display that info? \"top\" lumps all memory together so it\'s hard to tell how much is allocatable for user apps  (I\'m a linux newbie if you can\'t tell  :oops: )

TIA,

Jerry

df will tell you how much disk space (internal storage and mounted CF/SD cards) you have left.

top is telling you how much RAM is in use by processes.

Thanks zaphod, that\'s exactly what I was looking for. Yikes, 81% of mtdblock3 used  :cry: . Time to install games to the SD!

Use df -h , it gives you a more meaningful display. {rh}
