Linux RAM Disk

Howto setup a ram disk on linux

Make a mount point

sudo mkdir /ramdisk

First create the partition

sudo mount -t tmpfs none /ramdisk -o size=256M,mode=1777,noexec,nosuid,nodev

To make it automatic add this to /etc/fstab

none   /ramdisk   tmps size=256M,mode=1777,noexec,nosuid,nodev    0 0

There's no need to format the filesystem as the mount call does this already. Remember that this partition is volatile.
