Question Is my etch useing to much ram?


My ram is full when I boot to kde 3.5.3 whit etch on kernel 2.6.16
I got 512mb minus 64 for the graphics card.
There must be something wrong, right?

This is from "top"

Tasks: 88 total, 1 running, 87 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 37.1%us, 8.3%sy, 0.0%ni, 52.6%id, 0.7%wa, 1.3%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st
Mem: 451512k total, 440756k used, 10756k free, 95472k buffers
Swap: 48184k total, 0k used, 48184k free, 191116k cached


This is from "ps u -A" (mem was full when I booted, only apps that didnt start then is konquror and totem)

Yes, that is most likely the "issue".

There is no point in having 512Mb RAM and not using it, is there?
