Within the system memory 256 and not 512
« on: January 14, 2013, 06:22:56 AM »
My Raspberry Pi Model B is 512MB.
But using Picore he only gets 256MB.
How do I enable the 512MB?

Sorry for my english, I'm brazilian and I'm starting with Tinycore now and so far I'm loving it.

Current image is for the 256M version. I have to grab an 512M version, please wait for few days.

Carlos,

please try this image:

http://www.hasix.org/tc/piCore-X-beta130114a.img.xz

It is expected to recognize 512M. Let me know the result.

Bela


P.S: It is compatible with the 256M version too.

 Hope you don't mind me jumping in here but i've been planning to try the X version of TC for some time and on seeing this i had to give it a go and it works a treat on my 512mb Pi.
 Free reports total memory as 448724 so i guess that means 64mb reserved for the video core as standard? Early impressions are very good and it is extremely fast so i'll throw a few apps at it and see how it goes.
 Cheers, Protaganist.

Thanks bmarkus, I still had not seen the post.
I will test and home tonight, I'm at work now.

I wanted only the MicroCore, but I will also test the PicoreX.

In my project I need to run ruby redis-server and only that.

Can you tell me if the communication with the GPIO is working?

Please be more specific. How do you want to use GPIO?
