RAMDISK for LiveCD - Ubuntu

Hi All, Do you know when a Ubuntu LiveCD boots up, how dose the system allocate physical memory for RAMDISK and normal memory opearation for application? Is the RAMDISK size preconfigured in the some configuration file in the CD or the system would set up a suitable size dynamically depending on how much physical memory your pc has? I booted LiveCD from a machine which has a Linux installed in hard disk. Looked like Ubuntu LiveCD system would mount the swap partititon from hrad disk too. How will it setup swap if a pc dose not have a swap partition ...

    Default RAMDISK for LiveCD

    Hi All,

    Do you know when a Ubuntu LiveCD boots up, how dose the system allocate
    physical memory for RAMDISK and normal memory opearation for application? Is
    the RAMDISK size preconfigured in the some configuration file in the CD or
    the system would set up a suitable size dynamically depending on how much
    physical memory your pc has?


    I booted LiveCD from a machine which has a Linux installed in hard disk.
    Looked like Ubuntu LiveCD system would mount the swap partititon from hrad
    disk too. How will it setup swap if a pc dose not have a swap partition in
    the hard disk?

    Any pointers to the doent would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    The live-cd normally does not use this swap-partition as a swap-partition.
    It mounts what it can, but that's it.
