My Ubuntu is using an insane amount of ram memory. When I boot the machine it is using around 1,5 to 2 gig ram without me launching any applications. When I start firefox and vlc it maxes out. Going to 6083716 used (almost max)
I can't find the source of this memory usage. But the vlc video sound is getting distorted because of it. Also when I shutdown everything running it still stays using over 5 gig of ram.
The graphical system monitor is saying only 18 % is used but top and free say its almost all in use.
