fresh install - memory hogged ...
Posted on 2002-03-17
I've been looking back and forth through any possible manual on the web and found no solution.... I installed a fresh 7.2 Redhat on my AMD K6-2 400 box with 128 Mb of memory ... for some stupid reason, the freaking OS eats 90% of my RAM after startup leaving just enough room to do some browsing and working command line and standard tools. Upon installing Star/Open-office, my memory is saturated and the system hangs (thought that couldn't happen on linux anymore ?????)
tsss...tssss.tssss.... who can help me here ?
