3GB CF Card?



  • Is it possible to install pfsense 2.0 on a 3GB Microdrive?  … Can I just put the 2.0 GB image on it and loose 1.0 GB of storage.



  • I just install pfsense on a 4GB CF (no swap because I has 2GB RAM), no problem.

    /dev/md0        3694    50    3350    1%    /var/run

    The question wasn't really about RAM, it was more about the size of the CF card.  My CF card is a 3.0GB microdrive, but the images are available in 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB.  I'm trying to figure out if they will work on a 3GB card.

    You can always use a smaller image on a larger card/device. For example, on a 4GB CF you can use the 512MB, 1GB, 2GB or 4GB image.

    So on a 3GB microdrive, you could use the 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB image.
