I want this because i need to compare the performance of Raspberry PI by enabling and disabling cache.Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks in Advance. – Shiny Fathima Jan 5 '13 at 9:03

The config file is even optional itself, so just add the disable_l2cache option as you wish.


Actually this is the default value, so if you want to ENABLE ARM's access to L2 cache, you need not to do anything. But for how to make sure it is disabled, sorry I don't know either.
