Re: how to free memory from ramdisk

What do you mean with "made up severl ramdisk for test" ?

Did you create an image file and mounted it as ramdisk ? Compile it as module and unload it when not needed, that should free the buffers it uses.

The RamDisc product manages ramdisk file systems and supports freeing the memory without rebooting the system.
