You just don't get it, do you?

I know how the memory is managed in Linux. I know it is completly normal to have only 70 mb "free" of 1 gb. I know linux puts loads of stuff in the memory to speed up stuff. I know all that. There is just one tiny little problem over here. Cedegta decided to fill my memory with completely useless stuff! Stuff that only cedega appears to use. (i have thrown it out of my system now), witch resuslts in everythings else getting slowed down. Instead of having useful stuff in the RAM to speed up my daily work, it is filled with cache from cedega (probaly the installation of the game i tried, witch is by the way uninstalled too), so now my computer is reallt slowed down.

Hope this helped you understand, since you obviously did not read my previous posts with attention.

Telling somebody that is asking for help to sod off and stop bothering everyone else is not a good way to show you are good at linux, as many people seem to think.
