It looks like you have no swap and don't have enough memory.

Hi


To aid in assisting you, would you please post :

The name of the Linux distribution that you are using and its version number.

A quick description of your PC. Including processor type, amount of RAM, and amount of hard disk free space.


Questions:

1) Have you looked up the minimum RAM and hard disk space requirements for the Linux distribution that you are using.

2) has this distribution installed and executed normally prior to the occurrence of these errors ? If so would you please specify the details of any significant changes that you made to the installation prior to the occurrence of these errors.


Regards

Chris
