Re: [PLUG] swap on ram disk

Which extra 800Mb? Are you talking about memory eaten up by using PAE, 
or something else?

You know you can run a 64bit kernel, and still run 32bit Firefox & 
Openoffice? Each process will be limited to 4Gb, but you can access the 
full 4Gb of system memory. That said, I believe there is a 64bit version 
of Flash available for Linux.
