Dear Andrew S. Tanenbaum professor and Dear predecessors:
I'm a college student in Nanjing Xiaozhuang University/Jiangsu/China. I modified the alloc.c in /usr/src/servers/pm folder. Only modified the alloc_mem function. Detailed code, I have managed to GitHub.
【This is the modified detailed code-alloc.c's url link: https://github.com/Jaya0455/os-experiments-code-notes/blob/master/ex6/alloc.c
After modifying alloc.c, I entered the command to change the directory to /usr/src/tools folder. then entered the command: "make image && make install" to install the new Minix3.1.0. Next I entered the command: "shutdown && boot c0d0p0" to restart the os.
After entering the Minix3.1.0, I tapped the command: "ls" to verify that MINIX memory management adopts the first adaptation algorithm of dynamic partition allocation. The results are shown in the
attachment picture.

From the results, we can see that the operating system allocated memory blocks to the process twice. However, the ls command should only create one process. I don't understand the reason why the operating system allocates memory blocks for the process twice. My operating system teacher and search engines can't answer my doubts. So I take the liberty to find your email on the Internet and think about asking you for advice. I look forward to your reply.
