I have SuSE Linux 7.3 on an Athlon XP 2100 (very different from a P4 I
think, but also new ...) but only 512 MB memory.
12:20pm up 4 days, 18:05, 5 users, load average: 1.02
Yes I crashed it (or at least I crashed X) four days ago, with
darned Netscape 7 I think. I hit the case reset button afair.
I have a pre-order in for 8.2
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 514972 509428 5544 0 13760 147532
-/+ buffers/cache: 348136 166836
Swap: 152576 876 151700
'free' is an easier way to check memory usage than 'top' on SuSE Linux.
The second line of numbers is the important one for performance. I
find the 'Mem used' number on the first line grows close to 'Mem
total' a few hours after boot.
(My swap space is much too small according to all guidelines - but I
rarely need swap anyway - only 1 or 2 light users - I will fix this
I think we have drifted off-topic.
