I used this topic

http://www.linuxscrew.com/2010/03/24/fa ... untulinux/

so I wrote

Code: Select all

olezha@olezha ~ $ free -m
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:          1615       1469        145          0         69        326
-/+ buffers/cache:       1073        542
Swap:         2913          6       2907
olezha@olezha ~ $ mkdir /tmp/ramdisk; chmod 777 /tmp/ramdisk
olezha@olezha ~ $ mount -t tmpfs -o size=256M tmpfs /tmp/ramdisk/
mount: only root can do that
olezha@olezha ~ $ sudo -s
[sudo] password for olezha: 
olezha ~ # mount -t tmpfs -o size=256M tmpfs /tmp/ramdisk/
olezha ~ # 
now how to move google chrome profile to that ram disk?

thanks

Here is a script that you can try:
Profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs

big thanks , Austin! I did script and it looks like it is working faster! Does it depend if I make RAM disk bigger and Chrome will work faster?
