Subject: Re: Is there linux RAM filesystem with a fixed amount of memory?‏

I mounted a ramfs filesystem with 10M size, and have a check of
/proc/meminfo.
I find the ramfs also did not have the memory preallocation.

I just add one line into /etc/fstab
none 	/tmp	ramfs	size=10m	0	0 

Any wrong in my steps?
