pidin includes size of uncompressed boot image into proncto’s memory
usage. While actual memory used by process is about 300K (ls -l
/proc/boot/procnto) those 900K are still wasted (most of it). There’s
little you can do until 6.1 release comes out (it supports releasing of
memory allocated for boot image once it is not needed anymore).

Running ‘PIDIN MEM’ shows that the kernel (procnto) is using 933K of memory.
Is this correct? And how can I reduce this memory usage.
I am building an app on a 386SX with 2meg ram and am using serial, tiny tcp
and pcmcia with a minimal application. I am blowing out the ram. All the
other processes seem to be using an acceptable amount of memory.
