iMX6 Linux Multimedia with just than 256MB of total RAM?

Hi all,

 

I'm trying to get gstreamer and gplay working with just 256MB of total RAM.

 

I've noticed that the kernel configurations for boards with 512MB (like Wandboard Solo for example) have a setting of 256MB for CMA (contiguous memory allocator).

 

I can't use that on our board because our overall memory size is just 256MB.

 

So I've lowered CMA to 128MB but with that setting gplay just crashes, even on the wandboard on which it worked before.

 

Do you think there's any chance of getting gstreamer and gplay to work on a 256MB system at all? Can they be configured to get along with just 128MB of contiguous memory from the CMA driver?

 

Thanks,

Thomas
