X uses an excessive amount of memory! ~80Mb
I recently installed Mandrake 9.1 on an old computer (266Mhz AMD-K6, 96Mb RAM, Voodoo Banshee, ~7GB HD).
I am running with the gdm display manager, on a gnome desktop. When I check my memory usage I see that X uses about 80 MB of RAM - Is this really how it's supposed to be?
I'm running on a 750Mhz Athlon, 640MB RAM Mandrake 9.1 station right now where X uses approx. 319 MB !!!
Hmmm, nothing seems to be wrong elsewhere... Just wondering.
