Applications consume huge memory amount in kernel-2.6.4


Hi.
Finally managed to boot my RH9 with kernel 2.6.4, however I'm still helpless with these problems, hope you can help:
My 458MB RAM is gone and isn't recognized on boot;
Tomcat/Nautilus/Apache are chewing memory up considerably, i.e
222MB JAVA, Nautilus 74.1MB, httpd 16.3MB;
USB modules/Filesystem still won't load, even after module-util-tools was upgraded;
On shutdown I get "Mouse console services" FAILED, Is this a gpm related problem?; can the "aumix: Error opening mixer" problem be solved somehow?

Can anyone help?

I have nforce3 chipset nad I also get that aumix error problem. I tried 2.6.5 and that seems to fix it. I compiled my 2.6.5 kernel with 2.6.4 but I had to do mkinitrd with 2.4.20 kernel because 2.6.4 kernel complained that all my loopback devices were in use.

And if you use ACPI try adding pci=noacpi option to your bootloader menu. At least with nforce chipsets there seems to be some problems with ACPI but there is also workaround.

I was thinking of upgrading to kernel-2.6.5 as a last resort. The aumix problem b.t.w appears in bugzilla: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/...g.cgi?id=55803
Any idea why 2.6.4 won't recognize /proc? Is it the source of my memory problem?

I compiled my 2.6.5 kernel again with different settings and ques what..aumix problem comes back. Luckily I should aumix working config file still somewhere so I might be able to pinpoint this problem later.

/proc directory errors there are some options in filesystems under pseudofilesystems or misc filesystems if I remember correctly. I have disabled that /proc/dev support.
