    How to find out RAM Memory details on an embedded system?

    I know from /proc/meminfo vstat, free etc, but none of the commands give you exact RAM i have.

    Example, I have checked on a system where i know the RAM size of 256 Mb, but none of the above command displays 256Mb.

    is that correct or am i missing something?

    #8 says “Dispaly.” It should say “Display.”
