- Why is Ubuntu using so much memory? 2 answers
I've installed Ubuntu using the Microsoft Windows Installer, and it's running pretty slow.
I've got 3.8 GB ram on my computer, and by running
free -m I'm getting the following results :
total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 3920 3440 479 0 1174 1457 -/+ buffers/cache: 809 3110 Swap: 255 0 255
Only 479 out of 3440 MB is free, while to only process running at the moment if Firefox. I've changed the swappiness to 10, but still no change is seen. I'd like to know why so much memory is used and how could I fix it and possibly make my computer run faster. Any solution would be grateful , thanks in advance !
