I have created a Ramdisk for Chrome following these instructions:
1) Most of our commands require superuser privileges, so we might as well just switch to root. sudo su - 2) Edit your startup script: nano /etc/rc.local Right above “exit 0″ we’ll add the commands that need to run each time at startup: mkdir /tmp/ram mount -t tmpfs -o size=512M,mode=750 tmpfs /tmp/ram/ chown -R yourUserName /tmp/ram/ (replace “yourUserName” with your user name) Save the changes and exit (ctrl-o, ctrl-x). 3) Edit your boot configuration: nano /etc/default/grub Change the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line to read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”ramdisk=512000″ and again save and exit. 4) Reboot and verify that /tmp/ram now exists with “drwxr-x—” rights with you as the owner. 5) Relocate your existing browser (no need to do this as root) cache and link to it: For Chromium: rm -rf ~/.cache/chromium ln -s /tmp/ram ~/.cache/chromium For Google Chrome: rm -rf ~/.cache/google-chrome/ ln -s /tmp/ram ~/.cache/google-chrome For Mozilla Firefox: The cache for Firefox can be found inside your Firefox profile (which includes a big random string in it). As long as you only have one Firefox profile you can do this: cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/*default rm -rf Cache ln -s /tmp/ram Cache
I'd like to use Lightread with a Ramdisk, what should I do to achieve that?
