Is this likely to be the case anytime soon? Because I too would like to be able to effectively disable the GPU and utilize those 'wasted' mb.

You would also need the compiler (not available)...it's not Arm....and an innate understanding of how it all works to be able to make changes as required.vlambrecht wrote:Hi, yes. I found the start.elf (various) in the /boot/ dir, and changed the RAM to 224/32, the thing I didn't know, was that you are essentially locked in with a minimum of 32MB for the GPU. Those additional 30BM could go a long way

Wow, today I looked into /boot/ and I saw start240.elf Very nice for headless serversSirLagz wrote:For anyone looking at this post, it looks like the minimum RAM required for the GPU is now down to 16mb thanks to Dom.
My script currently does not take that into account, I will be updating it accordingly soon.
