XF86_SVGA consuming over 60% of my memory
I'm running Debian potato, so I have the pre version 4 of XFree.
It used to run like a champ. After installing a few more packages
and doing an update here or there, it appears I have a memory
I barely have anything running compared to when it ran like
a champ and now I'm always on the border line of memory
with 256 Mbytes of ram I tend to have only 50 Mbytes or less free.
a 128 Mbyte swap file is down to 36 Mbytes or less free.
Here's what I do have running:
- mini_commander applet
wah! my machine is running like a win98 machine!
used to be I could have 2 emacs sessions, an xterm,
gqview, several netscape windows, and more and run
for over a month with no lose of resources. It was rock
solid, now its limping like a sick puppy.
