Title: vanilla pIII - dsl toram fails
Post by: RobM on July 04, 2013, 03:21:48 PM
I have successfully run DSL 4.1.10 from CD on
    Pentium III 600MHz
    512MB Ram
   ASUS motherboard
Everything seemed to work, but it seemed a bit slow so I tried
boot: dsl toram

It spews messages like
   _alloc_pages: 0 order allocation failed - killing process bash
 then dies with a message
    "respawning too fast, disabled for 5 minutes" and also "no more processes at this runlevel"
5 minutes pass, same thing happens.

Is this my system or a known bug?
Can I provide info that will help developers?

Thanks,

Rob

Follow up - resolved 

The system did not have 512 MB ram, it had 64MB. Embarrasing, yes!

When I added another 256MB I was able to use the toram boot option.
