Thanks in part to the great help I've found here especially in patching the serial driver, I've got a data logging program using binary input on the serial port.
Now I'd like to write the data to a file on the ramdisk (/var/myfile?) but would like to expand it beyond the half meg allocation. There's a line in the linux Makefile that seems to allow setting the size of the ramdisk but that line is commented out and I couldn't find references to the ramdisk in the ucsimm Makefile or deftemplate.sh.
Where can I set the size and what are the size limits? I'm using a very small program so would like to play with the largest ramdisk which, I'm guessing based on comments earlier in this forum, could be up to 7 Mbytes.
(I'm new to Linux so what might be considered obvious has escaped me here...)
