Subject: Memory runs out fast with 2.6.0-test2 (and test1)
Date: Sun, 27 Jul 2003 21:17:23 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <200307272117.23398.mjferna@yahoo.com> (raw)

Everything works OK in my system... my only gripe is that I run out of memory 
quickly. I have a Fujitsu C-7651 Lifebook laptop, Pentium III, 512 Mb Ram, 
300 Mb swap.

When I start up (with KDE) I've alredy used 300 megs of ram. The if I open 
mozilla, and view some phostos with kuickshow, thats it, I use 700 Megs of 
physical and virtual memory...

Looking at ps aux shows that 5% goes to each of the 5 mozilla processes, 3% 
for this, 2% for that... It is all accounted for in different ways. It is 
just that running under 2.4.21, with the same programs I very rarely use my 
swap memory, let alone use all my physical and swap memory.

PS
I had the same issue with test1.

PPS
Could it be that I am doing something stupid when I configure the kernel... 
This is what I have in my config file.. may be config_nohighmem?:
