After upgrade, excessive RAM usage
 
Hi,
I'm running Debian Etch on my box, but yesterday enabled the Sid repository and made ran "apt-get upgrade" from there.
Well, nothing seems to be broken, but my 'conky' shows constant RAM use on ~70% when I ust boot to the desktop
I have 512MB of RAM. Before the upgrade it was using ~100-200MB.
'Top' and 'System Monitor' don't show the hogging program(s).
I need suggestions, how to get the usage down.


Thanks

The task panel load monitor shows that most of the RAM is used for cache :S How can i disable that.

You don't want to - do some searching, there must be thousands of threads on memory usage in Linux.
