Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender


Let's take care of your message that never made it to the list :)
because it seems that BerliOS is back on track.

I'd go with "romfs", it tells exactly what's going on.

That's no longer true. On my LPC2888, with the new "multiple"
allocator, all of them are working (as the board has an external 32MB
SDRAM that is now used when the internal chip memory (64k) runs out).
I suspect we'll have more boards with this behaviour, so let's leave
it like this for now. But we should indeed "exchange" the contents of
the "romfs" and examples directories, it makes more sense this way.
By the way, on my LM3S board the "nsieveb.lua" sample does run. Have
you try running it right after a reset? I suspect we might have some
memory holes (no idea why yet), so running it right after reset it
helps. And use the old (newlib) allocator, the new one seems to have a
larger memory overhead.
