I might have found the solution to this..

I think it has to do with overo.conf setting for the UBIFS parameters.

I'll do a fresh bake and see if it is the cause of the missing 256MB.. (^^,)

I just laid my hand on a new Overo FE 512MB/512MB stick (R3119).

I've updated the MLO, U-Boot, Kernel and UBIFS (desktop-nand-image)
Filesystem to the latest from Gumstix.

The amount of RAM and NAND detected during booting is correct at

When I login to the console and check the freespace available, I got

and for the amount of RAM

root@overo:~# free -bl

The amount of freespace on the rootfs is less than 1%??!!! and the detected
size is only 256MB??
On my other Overo FE 256MB/256MB, this is expected but with a 512MB NAND and
the remaining space are gone??

I'm using Gumstix's script to write the UBIFS file and everything.

Anyone encountered this situation?

Or, do I need to build my own UBIFS nand-image and change some parameters in
the recipe to get the full 512MB NAND?

Please advise.
