Swap, RAM and Kernel 2.6.7
I've just finished compilingthe new kernel 2.6.7 (stable release) but I noticed that X is very slow (especially when i run Mozilla). I "free -m" and the results are :
Total USed Free
Mem : 107 105 1
swap : 125 0 125
Why wasnt swap used? But When I boot to kernel 2.4 everything is OK.
When I run "System Monitor" (GNOME) the "used swap" is 0 of 1k and "used memory" is [B]0 of 1k[/B} ???? Why 1k ? I have a 128 MB SDRAM (16mb is used by my video card) and I have 130mb swap. Please Help ! Thanks

First off... GNOME is almost as bloated as Windows....
Second.... What services are running?
THird... Does your kernel "overcommit" memory?
Real security doesn't come with an installer.

nevermind, it's "fixed" already. I recompiled the kernel and it's alright now. However, the sound is stupid. When i try to play mp3 using XMMS crap sound goes out from my speaker. The sound sounds like static, or noise or hiss. Please help !
