Out of memory on Omega
Hum so I did a factory reset, installed python, pip and then attempted to add the soundcloud library but it says memory full.
The soundcloud library is only about 26K as far as I can tell.
Since its possible to install PHP I'm very surprised
How do I check memory usage?
Also how do i get more memory?
I have a first gen Omega not Omega2
Enter 'top' - to show what app need the most ressources
Enter 'free' - to show how much ram is used
Disable some services that are not needed.

you can set up swap. not sure if omega is same as omega2 but look at the document page onion has for omega2 to get idea,
Ok so I found how to check memory, the command to check memory is df
And to use USB memory as rootfs instructions @ https://github.com/OnionIoT/wiki/blob/master/Tutorials/Using-USB-Storage-as-Rootfs.md
However there is not enough memory onboard to complete this command
tar -C /tmp/cproot -cvf - . | tar -C /mnt/sda1 -xf -
It stops before complete saying out of memory.
There are slightly different instructions here for the Omega2, will that work on the Omega
Very disappointed with the product, Onion solution is to buy the Omega2
Are they suggesting the first gen omega is useless.
Forgot the other link
