Re: is debian eating my memory?

pay attention to what the memory is being used for.

take this for example:

[root@aphro /usr/local/games/quake2] free 
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:        253224     250956       2268      79044      72144      77588
-/+ buffers/cache:     101224     152000
Swap:       267108        268     266840

there are over 100megs in buffers there ..i only have 2megs free..but its
not a big deal.  don't worry about it, unless your close to running o ut
of swap.  that is a good sign you don't have enough memory.

There's dos/win on this pc too so I'm wondering if the tech person didn't enable shadow ram or something?
