Hi Andrew, thanks for your reply.

Yea, i know that most of distros will load up a big chunk of mem.
Right now i'm using a ubuntu minimal - iso, it starts and it uses 36MB
aprox, then using the LiME module.
I'm trying to trim this footprint down...

Another tool that should be good to do this (problably the best) is the
scraper.bin that the "princeton research" guys did.
Has anyone ever used this to dump mem and then use volatility?
