How do I free kernel memory pages?
I've fooled around with: root# strings -n 30 /proc/kcore | less
and discovered that all STDOUT/STDERR activities ( like ls, man etc ) had slowed down considerably.
Also, X and Opera seemed to struggle with a lack of memory.
Glance at: root# top revealed that there is about 20M of unaccountable used memory.
Maybe all I've described doesn't relate to any problem with memory, but if it is,
how do I free these memory pages?
Thanks a lot.
