|Sidenote: Wait, is that's all that is required to make a ram disk in linux? I needed a way of storing a continuous written to file without writing it to a harddrive/flash.|
Yes. Although the max size is defined when compiling the kernel and is usually 4MB, and the max number of ramdisks is also defined compile-time, the default is 16. Most people use tmpfs instead, since it's newer, faster, and can be resized on the fly, but old-fashioned ramdisks have their uses.
