I installed Red Hat Linux 7.1 on my laptop. First I tried installing custom packages but used to run into dependency errors (depmod, while booting). So reinstalled it completely (all options). Now everything is working well. But I have all these extra processes (sendmail etc) which are starting up at the boot time. Since I won't be using them, is there a way to stop them from starting up at boot time.
2ndly. When my machine boots, the memory usage is close to 30% in KDE environment. (384MB RAM in total). But after accessing some gnome application the memory usage goes upto 80%. Any reason why it is doing that.
Thanks in advance.
