Kanotix has many processes running, which are safe to disable?
 
hi, i just installed kanotix and have like 90 processes running! almost all my memory is gone. how can i find process information, to find out whats safe to disable and how do i disable them?

Don't know the answer to your question, but where do you get that all your emmory is gone?
It's normal that top will show a low amount of free memory. That's nothing to worry about.
Is your system using swap space?

90 is quite a lot of running processes. I usually have some where between 69-80 running. As long as your not using a lot of swap I wouldn't worry to much.

Although you may want to see what processes are acessing the intenet.

netstat -a will show everything listening to the net.
When I am not browsing only two things show up on my system as active, ipp and boot.

thanks for the replies
 
yes, im using a swap space i believe. the process table shows me having 1gb of swap, but i've never seen it used. it looks like 7 processes are connected to the internet i believe. thanks guys.
