after working with Openwrt I tried to install LEDE on a Wrap. First Problem, the Image didn´t fit on a 256MB CF, before I used a 64MB one. Second Problem, it didn´t boot. I did make a Test in a VM with different Memory-Sizes: 512MB no boot, 1GB successfull boot. Remeber, a Wrap has 128Mb.
To be clear...what's a Wrap?
The uncompressed v17.01.4 image is 285.7 MB...this is greater then 256 MB.
This isn't a problem, your CF card isn't large enough.
Well...I last created an 17.01.4 x86 machine in VM to test config and boot for another thread...it booted successfully with 256 MB...
I suggest setting up a working virtual HDD and system config, first.
This is a Wrap:
I tried the generic Version, why needs this so much memory?
This is a Wrap
I also used the Generic Version.
I just tested booting 128 MB of RAM, it worked!
Can you explan this? Must I assemble my own image?
The computer works fine for years without any memory problems
Topic updated accordingly.
root@LEDE:/# df -h

tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev
why do I need such a big CF for this small system?
But this is not really important, more imprtant is the memory problem

Again, the image is 285.7 MB. If you wish to resize it, you can do so with tools such as GParted.
GParted (acronym of GNOME Partition Editor) is a GTK+ front-end to GNU Parted and an official GNOME partition-editing application (alongside Disks). GParted is used for creating, deleting, resizing, moving, checking, and copying disk partitions and their file systems. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks, and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).
GParted uses libparted to detect and manipulate de...
To store a filesystem with 10.2 Mb ...
But as I told before, this is a minor problem, the real problem is the memory
Again, it boots with 128 MB...
Also, I just tested with 64 MB, it works too!
What error do you receive???
Have you tested the memory, though?
The problem is on two computers, the wrap, and the host for the vm, I can try the vm at an other host or check the memory on the host with memtest, but I´m sure I will get the same result.
I always tested the image with an 2G CF, so as I told before, this is a minor problem
Consider marking this thread "SOLVED."
The memory is still my problem
regarding the VM, consider making a new thread, as the x86 image works with: 256, 128 and 64 MB RAM.
The Wrap issue is SOLVED. Consider making a new thread for memory issues on the VM.
this means, the test on the wrap was negative, like in the vm.
I can´t change the memory on the wrap.
@jsffm...I 100% understand, as I've said mutiple times:
check your memory
