free memory



    Hey guys. If I do a free on my gateway, I get:

[msoulier@jumpgate msoulier]$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         14308      13680        628       1468       2428       7068
-/+ buffers/cache:       4184      10124
Swap:        96764       6688      90076

    It has 16 Megs of RAM, so is there a reason why it would show 14.3?

    Similarly, I have 64 Megs on my PC, and

[msoulier@lupus msoulier]$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         62296      60908       1388      18792       1320      24168
-/+ buffers/cache:      35420      26876
Swap:       200772      27748     173024

    it shows 62.3. Some kind of overhead?

    Mike
