A) 16 megs... 200 meg swap if that makes a difference
B) in messages i have an error as follows
kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0xf0/0)
and some others that are similiar (__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed...)
not sure what that means...
also in syslog i find this
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-10-134
kernel: VM: killing process xkbcomp
kernel: VM: killing process X
that seems like a problem...but i'm not sure what to do about it...
C) as for video modes, i have tried just about everything. even put it in VGA mode and it still does the same thing
D) have no ideas what 'gtf' is supposed to do but i'll look into it...
