I'm having a memory usage problem on my Red Hat 7.3 system using KDE 3.0.
From a fresh boot, my system has very little memory in use. But, as the days go on, the memory usage climbs higher and higher. I've tried logging out and restarting the X-Server, to no avail. The only solution seems to be a reboot.
Here is a pic of top, sorted by memory usage. This is after only 3 days of up time:
Notice the 363204K memory in use. Notice all of the kdeinits taking up a lot of memory.
Here is a pic of top right after a fresh boot, sorted by memory usage.
Notice only 161368K memory in use. Notice that the kdeinits are not taking up a lot of memory.
