OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2
(2013-09-01, 22:01)MilhouseVH Wrote: Not just 128MB GPU, but yes, OpenELEC will, by default, load SYSTEM into RAM whenever it determines there is sufficient memory available (more than 102MB available, to be precise). On a 512MB Pi with 128MB GPU, there will be 382MB RAM available at boot.

However I don't see a significant performance difference with SYSTEM loaded into RAM, so have opted to have more free memory by adding "noram" to cmdline.txt.

If you are seeing 300MB free with Gotham, I've a sneaking suspicion you're not loading SYSTEM into RAM. A recent Gotham build (128MB GPU) with SYSTEM not loaded into RAM only has ~75MB free.

If you have a file called /dev/SYSTEM then you are booting with SYSTEM loaded into RAM.

I do have /dev/SYSTEM and the debug OSD currently shows 296000/382000KB but free -m shows

OpenELEC:~ # free -m
              total         used         free       shared      buffers
Mem:           373          350           23            0           42
-/+ buffers:                307           66
Swap:            0            0            0

LiveTV (Mediaportal PVR) isn't working for me either on the 31/08 build and it takes a looong time to reboot or poweroff.

EDIT: Reverted to the 18/08 build and both problems are fixed
