Hi all, I've been a happy user of LM 8 and 9 for the past few years, and now I've moved on to LMDE.
I'd like to create a ramdisk for my firefox cache (I know firefox can already store it's cache in ram, this is a learning experience and unless there is a very good reason to not do it this way - and I'd appreciate a comparison by someone more knowledgeable than myself - I'd like to try).
I have 2 GB of ram, even with firefox, bloated as it is, I rarely use more than 512MB and zero page file (less than what I used with ubuntu/gnome based mint!). I'd like the ram disk to be 512MB in size (as recommended by some walkthroughs etc. that I've linked to at the bottom).
I'd just do it myself, but I'd like to run a sanity check by the members here since (at least for me) the relationship between debian (and lmde) and ubuntu is a little confusing, and I feel like modifying the boot process and ram allocation is something I shouldn't be doing without caution.
TL;DR - what of the two ubuntu options in the link below will work for me? is there a better way? how does doing it this way compare to any other methods of storing firefox's cache in ram?
Thanks!http://www.linuxreaders.com/2011/01/11/ ... ra-ubuntu/
