Re: memory useage of X

This is unlikely as we are running the same top version. also the difference in memeory useage is considerably more then the meagre 32mb on
my graphics card.
also as i am running processes large enough to fill memory, i am overrunning the system memory when i need more than the remaining 3/4 of my system memory.

Is there some optimisation of x memory useage or is this a feature of redhat vs mandrake? ( as i need to reinstall my o.s. it would be useful to know as whilst i am a redhat man
if switching to mandrake will improve my memory performance which is key to my work it would be useful to know now)

  You are probably using a tool (e.g. top) that is including the
memory onboard the video card, as well as the system memory.
