(Arch) Linux Raspberry Pi Set GPU Memory

If you want to use your raspberry pi in headless mode (no monitor connected), you can decrese the number of memory from your gpu to gain more free memory.
Open the file "/boot/config.txt" and search for something like "gpu_mem_". The advice is to set it to something like "64" or "48". Otherwise it is possible that your pi will not boot.
