I'm still relatively new to the Linux world, but I'm getting more proficient by the day... My question is that when I look at gkrellm while running intensive apps, it indicates about 900MB of my 1GB of RAM as being free. SWAP on the other hand, is nearly completely used (or at least being used much more than RAM is).
Is there any reason for this?
If so, is there a way to tell Linux to start using RAM when it can and forget about using up my SWAP partition?! ... Using Mandrake 9.1.
Thanks in advance!
