I have configured Xubuntu 12.04 to login to terminal without any GUI/DisplayManager. I could see no process running related to XFCE in ps -eaf|grep -i xf*
But my memory consumption in top command does not show any significant improvements. In GUI mode, the system was taking up 340-350MB of RAM. In Terminal mode also it taking up the same RAM.
I thought of saving good amount of memory because of No GUI mode;but in vain. What could be the issue?
Please provide inputs.
Thanks, Harish Pathangay
