Hello,

Its a newbie question. I have been trying to look around and hit upon the following link.      
http://mail.nl.linux.org/linux-mm/1998-08/msg00028.html

I am a bit confused. When we call free in Linux, is the memory not given back to the system(just cached)? What is the state of the issue in the latest Linux Kernel?

Thanks,
V
