This is a little out of context, but you were talking about it, and I hope
that at least you can point me to the right way...
Is there a way to set up in a "normal" system a little particion (say 32Mb
or so, defined somewhere by the user) in Ram, so that one could use it to
speed up development/compilation stuff ?
( Well , I'm also looking for feedback if this is a nonsense or not... a
friend told me that we could maybe get increased speed of some 10x ,
justified by the diferent acess and transfer time of RAM when comparing to
the hard drive.. It made sense, but I'm willing to double check his
Anyway, if this is possible, do you think it was possible too to get
everything that was in that RamDisk particion saved to hard disk
automaticaly when umounting the partition? That way , if we forgot that we
were working there and rebooted or shutdown (the normal way , not the
"windows power button press" way) , the work wold be saved, for example in
/tmp/ramdisk_backup, or maybe /tmp/ramdisk_[time]_backup
I believe this wold be possible tweaking some script (wich one?) that wold
do this check on unmount...
like running a service? the S script wold mount , the K script wold check,
save, and umount ?
What do you think ? Thanks

Well... it's not really a leak, is it?
The memory will be returned when the user reboots ...
