Re: Model B RPi only showing 128M

That did the trick, Microbitsuk, I now have 4587252K total system memory. Thank you very much for pointing me to the correct files on the github. I was wandering around in there a few minutes earlier, as I had been reading the thread on ROOL re porting of RISCOS to RPI, and it eventually became clea...

Re: Model B RPi only showing 128M

OK, it appears that Fixup.dat isn't needed on the NOOBS RISCOS distro, but something is telling RISCOS as it boots up that it only has 128M to play with. What does this? Is this passed as a parameter to something else that invokes RISCOS, or does something in RISCOS identify how much RAM there is? I...

Re: Model B RPi only showing 128M

The NOOBS RISCOS distro does not have a FIXUP.DAT file in it, and elsewhere on the net this seems to be fairly critical, and you have to have the correct one for the specific release of RISCOS. The NOOBS release is RC8 March 2013.

Re: Model B RPi only showing 128M

OK, Thanks for that, these were both unmodified distros, and the Raspbian showed the 512M RAM is definitely present, but for some reason not recognised by RISCOS RC8 or RC10. I also verified while in Raspbian that rpi-update says it is fully up to date. I've spent the day looking at several RPi-rela...

Re: Model B RPi only showing 128M

I already decided to check with an alternative OS, just after I first posted. Raspbian's task manager shows 49M used out of 438M, so I guess that means the full 512M is present, even if it can't use all of it. This would suggest a limitation/error in the RISCOS RC10 or NOOBS/RISCOS RC8 distro. As it...

Model B RPi only showing 128M [resolved]

I have what is supposed to be a Model B RaspPi with 512M RAM. I have just installed RISCOS onto it, which seems to tell me it only has 128M. Is this a limitation of the current RISCOS (17th June RC10) on the Pi? Or is there a problem on my Pi? I had also tried the RISCOS RC8 in the NOOBS distro, and...
