Ubuntu is using all of my ram...
I just installed Ubuntu, and I love it, by far my favorite out of the box distro.
Anyways, I'm having some problems with my RAM, I am using 100% of my RAM(with firefox open) but I have 230 MB of RAM(I only have firefox running!!). Is there anything I can do to shrink the amount of RAM I am using? I have tried going into System Monitor and closing down some un-needed aps, but to no avail. It says that 45% of the memory I am using is cache, is there any way I could bring my cache down? Or make it so it uses the swap more? I also am unable to use any OpenOffice programs.
Thanks, for any help you can give me!!
