Yes. So it's not usable for us.

Hmm. I am thinking of another approach...

The internal programs are in romfs. romfs and kernel are packed together 
into dslinux.nds.

So I think we can create TWO .nds files:

dslinux.nds with maximum free space in internal RAM.
dslinuxm.nds with more programs in internal RAM, assuming external RAM 
for comfortable working.

I don't care about them.


We're back to the times when men were men 
and wrote their own device drivers.
