archlinux-hf-2012-09-18.img set ramsize promblem,modle b

Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:40 am

I fired the image to sdcard. then boot the PI, and use commend line type "top",i find out that archlinux just use 189Mb ram only. then i modify "/boot/config.txt" file, append "gpu_mem=16 \n gpu_mem_512=16", reboot it . use "top", but it was 189Mb ram.

how can i do ? i want archlinux to use 512ram.

:?

The image is very old, pre 512MB, maybe use the latest image ?

No need to rewrite the image to your SD-card, just run "pacman -Syu" to update your system.
