I would like to create a large ramdisk to keep a database which will be
searched often, but not changed.
The only thing I currently know how to do to create a ramdisk is:
mount /dev/ram0 /tmp/ramdisk0
The only problem is that this creates a 4MB ramdisk, and I would like
something on the order of 1GB.
I tried running menuconfig and changing the default ramdisk size to 1GB,
making the kernel, and rebooting. Now when I run menuconfig, it shows
the ramdisk size as 1GB, but when I execute the mke2fs /dev/ram0, it
still only creates a 4MB ramdisk.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
