Re: Minimum RAM for ELKS?



Hey Dave
Use Bochs emulator. Set the RAM to how much ever your target machine
has, and use an elks image and see if it works.  iF it works on this
setting, it should work on your target hardware as well.

Hi,

I'm planning to fiddle with ELKS on an 8086 system at some time in the
near future. The system has very minimal RAM (~200k). Does anyone have
any idea (or even better, experience) about ELKS in such a low RAM
configuration?  I realise that I'll probably not get much more than the
kernel booting, as other software running will require more RAM than I have.

Getting to the stage where ELKS boots and my application prints "I'm
alive!" over the serial port is my first target.

cheers,
Dave
