I'm running RedHat 6.2 and Gnome+Enlightenment on a pentium machine with
32 megs of ram and lots of swap space (about 200MB at least I think)
The ram is pretty much permanently 97% used (accorting to the gnome
system information proggie gtop) and 29MB used according to xosview and
Is there any way to free up a bit of ram without scrapping gnome and
moving to something simpler? This lack of ram leads to some funny
things like when I run netscape it loads fine - freezes for about 5 mins
and then works ok again.
Surely 32 megs should be enough, right? I mean, this is linux - no
The swap is barely being used - usually about 4 to 12 MB.
If I do have to switch away from gnome what would you guys reccomend I
use? KDE I would presume would be as big if not bigger than gnome so
it'll probably have to be something else.
well....thanks for the help
