comment Set Volume to NOT delete on termination on AWS EC2 Management Console
my workaround was a little bit convoluted but less expensive: I created an ami image from the instance which created a snapshot I used to launch another instance (using the ami) unsetting "delete volume on termination", and when the instance terminates the volume is still there. If I make a snapshot of this volume I can attach it to a new instance and repeat the whole process (I know it's absurd to do this just to save a few bucks, but I guess tinkering with AWS is the best way to learn to use them...)

@Flup I forgot: dmesg|grep oom shows nothing.

comment segfaults while compiling VLC on low memory system
@Hennes the segfaults are random, the lines leading to it are all cc somemodule and the compiler displays a message saying it's a segfault and it cannot trace the problem and it must be SO related. echo 2 > /proc/cpu/alignment didn't help

comment segfaults while compiling VLC on low memory system
I just ran top in another terminal while compiling. Physical memory is almost full but swap is empty during compilation. I finally managed to compile it all just by trying a few times in a row. The whole process took me almost 4 hours, good thing it doesn't need to recompile already compiled modules!

comment Configuring DRAM size when compiling an ARM (linux-sunxi) kernel for an allwinner a10 tablet
It worked! I did dd bs=1 skip=72 if=/mnt/boot/boot.scr of=/mnt/boot/boot.script and edited boot.script line adding mem=512m setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait panic=rw mem=512m and then used mkimage from uboot-tools mkimage -A arm -T script -C none -n "My Boot.scr" -d /mnt/boot/boot.script /mnt/boot/boot.scr. Thanks for putting me into the right track :)
