I'm trying to create a ramdisk on my workstation. I have 16GB of physical memory and I'd like to make a ramdisk of size 8GB.
I've found plenty of online tutorials but they seem to assume I have /dev/ram* entries inside my /dev directory.
My Fedora 16 install doesn't seem to have *any* /dev/ram* entries.
Is this normal under FC16? Do I have a faulty install?
Can anyone tell me how I go about creating the ramdisk on FC16 in this situation?
I'm running F16 64-bit if that helps.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
