Yes, I think so, too.

I was told the same by someone on debian-user-de@jfl.de - but he didn't
elaborate any further. I read the manpage and tried linking xmem to xload
and running it as xmem - but that didn't help either.

Meanwhile I've been using xosview, too, but what I used to love about xmem
is its ability to show a "history" of the ram usage - xosview and most other
tools just show the present state.

I received an email from David Stern <dstern@u.washington.edu>, who
provided an URL to the xmem source on sunsite:


First I'll try that one (thanks David!), and in case it fails, I'll try
unpacking the xmem executable off the old bo xcontrib package and use that.
