Hmm, I thought that 768 MB RAM (minus 16 for integrated video) should be
enough for anyone ;) at least when just running fluxbox with no apps
started yet. Right now 'top' shows that no swap is being used and I have
Thunderbird, Firefox, xchat, xmms, xcalc and 5 xterms with ssh sessions:
last pid: 1264; load averages: 1.04, 1.04, 1.01 up 0+02:07:15 21:59:30
82 processes: 2 running, 80 sleeping
CPU states: 0.4% user, 98.5% nice, 1.1% system, 0.0% interrupt, 0.0% idle
Mem: 149M Active, 227M Inact, 100M Wired, 1388K Cache, 84M Buf, 251M Free
Swap: 512M Total, 512M Free
but of course I can't claim that swap wasn't being used when the problem
I do understand that there is virtually nothing in my initial posting that
could possibly help track down the problem. I just got this "me too" feeling.
