Im using FreeBSD 6.2 on my computer as a desktop.
A few days ago, I deinstalled a package under the port tree, turned off the monitor and went outside. It was not until i came back did i realize i was standing at /usr/ports/
when deinstalling, oops
Then i reinstalled my packages one by one, starting with Xorg. This time, i decided that i wouldnt use a Display Manager anymore, and used startx instead. I installed IceWM and ROX, and put these lines into my ~/.xinitrc
exec /usr/local/bin/rox -p=MyPinboard &
After rebooting and starting up, from the output of the top command, i have 134MBs of free RAM. This is weird. Before the "disaster", when starting up with GDM, then icewm-session
(which included icewm itself, icembg, icemtray and some other things) and ROX, i still had 154MBs of free memory.
One more thing: Right after reinstalling Xorg, when i started up FreeBSD but not startx yet, i had 221MBs free. Now (i dont know after what package is installed) when i start FreeBSD without X, i have only 211MBs free.
Could there be any leak? Reinstalling packages can't duplicate anything right?
From the output of the top command, i see many similar command running, like 7 getty
's, 2 sendmail
's, 2 sh
's, and 2 dhclient
O, about the sendmail thing, it's already disabled in /etc/defaults/rc.conf
(and not enabled in /etc/rc.conf
), how could it still appear here?
