I want to set RAM to 384MB. I've tried several things to try and get the RAM above the 184MB shown below by running
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 184M 73M 111M 0B 10M 38M
-/+ buffers/cache: 23M 160M
Swap: 99M 0B 99M
I followed the instructions here, there was no change. I also added the following line to /boot/config.txt:
Again, no change. I also tried following this guide, but it returned error 404. (I can't see the file
arm384_start.elf in my /boot directory).
What do I need to do to get it to work? I'm actually wondering if I loaded the correct image onto the SD card to start with - is it possible that I loaded the Model A's image? How can I tell?
Edit: As per the link posted by @avra, the contents of /proc/cpuinfo is as follows:
Processor : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 7 (v6l)
BogoMIPS : 697.95
Features : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java tls
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0xb76
CPU revision : 7
Hardware : BCM2708
Revision : 0003
Serial : 00000000da25038e
So since Revision < 5 it would seem it's the 256MB version?? It's odd since it has 2 USB ports and an ethernet port! Seems to conflict with the RPi FAQ:
What’s the difference between Model A and Model B? Model A has 256MB RAM, one USB port and no Ethernet (network connection). Model B has 512MB RAM, 2 USB port and an Ethernet port.
