Ok so I guess last few days there was a kernel upgrade in apt, cause I had to reboot. And since then, X shows up in htop eating 50% or more of my ram!
And the swap is totally eaten too. I haven't seen that happen in years.
Using 10.10 w/ compiz and an nvidia 6150 with the official nvidia drivers.
This has made my computer unusable. I disable AWN and changed my theme and no effect on X ram usage.
I tried looking with the 'tree' mode in htop for anything that stood out but didn't see anything.
Help, cause now I have to boot up into Vista.
