Can I add slow RAM?

Sat Jun 17, 2017 8:25 pm

So I've been looking around the forum and I've seen lots of people who want more RAM on there Pi. So I saw several people who said you can add super slow RAM partions with the USB but I dont know how. I want to open Feed The Beast(modded Minecraft) and get it to the home screen just for lolz, anyway thanks!

Yes you can create temp/swap partions or even files. In some circumstances they will increase 'apparent' memory. Performance will plummet.

AFAIK minecraft is a java app, and they tend not to be too tolerant of swapfiles (as a memory boost).

Best to limit the java memory usage.
