Essentially I've made a live cd, told grub to boot it into ram, have it so that it links my home folder on the hard disk to the user's home folder in squahsfs.
The image is 1.7gb, I have 4gb of ram in my box, so I am set with plenty of ram to run stuff and even game. It is blazing fast and great, then out of nowhere everything comes to a grinding halt.
I then noticed in the gnome system monitor that this seems to correlate almost perfectly to when my system is trying to use around 2.3 gb of ram or more.
Why doesn't my Ubuntu realize that theres 1.7gb loaded in ram already?
Is there anyway that I can trick my box? Ideally, allow it to realize that the root is in ram?
