You should install Kubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-Bit.

These can be enabled through the use of the /sys filesystem using root credentials. For the CPU, you change the "0" to a "1" in to the appropriate file of the pattern: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/online. For the RAM, you find the state in the files /sys/devices/system/memory/memory*/state and change the contents from offline to online. The script below ...

PHP has a setting that limits how much memory a single script can use. It doesn't matter how much total RAM your system has if you exceed that value. If you're running at the console, the file that affects it is likely /etc/php5/cli/php.ini and has a line that reads: memory_limit = XXXXXXX To remove the limit entirely, change it to read: memory_limit = ...

I like the output that sudo dmidecode -t 17 gives. Here's what it says about my machine: # dmidecode 2.12 # SMBIOS entry point at 0x000f0480 SMBIOS 2.7 present. Handle 0x0009, DMI type 17, 34 bytes Memory Device Array Handle: 0x0007 Error Information Handle: Not Provided Total Width: 64 bits Data Width: 64 bits Size: 4096 MB Form ...

It was a BIOS firmware problem, While the motherboard supported 8gb of RAM, the motherboard firmware (Dell) didn't. After updating this it worked - for anyone reading who has a Dell Inspiron 530, with a foxconn g33m motherboard, I did have to use HPUSBDISK tool to create a DOS usb to flash the bios, as I received memory errors when I used Rufus

This could be a hardware or a BIOS firmware problem. First if all I'd try to identify that the RAM modules are OK, by putting the new ones into slots 0-1 (or which definitely work). If that doesn't help, I would check the modules on another motherboard. If that doesn't help, I'd try to update the BIOS firmware. If that sounds too risky, try replacing the ...

I'm also running 16.04 and had a problem with this process just today. It wasn't smashing my RAM or swap, but mediascanner-service-2.0 and mediascanner-extractor-2.0 were preventing me from safely ejecting a USB drive with a lot of photos on it. Attempts to pskill the processes were immediately followed by the process restarting and continuing to hammer the ...

According to df, your /dev filesystem is full. This is a tmpfs, and so is stored in shared memory. Normally it should only contain a very small amount of data, mainly device nodes that provide a file interface to kernel drivers, so something is incorrectly filling it up. You can dig around with du to see what files are taking up all of the space.

I think you have 1024MB installed memory plus 1200MB or so swap. Use free -m to see the memory and swap amount in megabytes or free -h for a "human readable" representation. (Use cat /proc/meminfo to see complete details about memory )

Thank you for reminding me to finish this ! Indeed, after looking at the lines, I noticed that: slot:0 was the problem. Assuming it was bad memory, I took it out (Slots are allocated by your motherboard, or at least in mine, slot zero was slot 1 of the mother board) Thus I took it out, tested for 48 hours, and no errors appeared. Sent the RAM to ...

you can type the following commands in the terminal sudo su dmidecode --type 17 you will then see your RAM properties displayed... bingo! Hope this helps you.

Still tracking this issue? It seems like you have a bad memory module, the machine pauses just waiting for the hardware to correct this error by itself. You may need to try to remove or replace the memory at your first CPU, second channel and first slot.

I believe htop defaults on how many threads the main process is using and will show all of them. You can edit this out in the htop config file. goto: ~/.config/htop/htoprc. or try in htop press F2 and goto display options and press space select "hide kernel threads" and "hid userland threads" Should trim it down for you.

In simple terms, VIRT colmn is how much memory the process can use for that process. E.g. artifacto mapped it self 4612M to use. RES- This represents how much memory it is currently using. For Artifacto is is currently using 722M. Here is a link with some more info subject; HTOP reference

You can indeed use swapfile as temporary addition to your system memory. Personally, I have an SSD and use 1 GB swap file for protection instead of having a partition , since it's a compromise between using the limited disk space, but having extra memory if I ever run out of RAM First create the file itself sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1M ...

Your kernel is 64-bit. That's why you see that x86_64 GNU/Linux in that output of uname. You might try posting the output of the Linux command line the free command. It shows how much memory the kernel thinks you have and how much is currently free. I don't know why you would see less memory than you think you have. If you interrupt the boot sequence in ...

I switched from source building to Prebuilt chromium and it fixed. Track the Prebuilt changes from Omni gerrit by typing: 'Prebuilt chromium cm'. This error is related to low memory (RAM). The one who has 8GB+ RAM, he/she don't need Prebuilt chromium :-)

We experienced the same problem with CUDA jobs running on Debian Jessie machines with GTX 970 and GTX 980Ti GPUs. Your test case also caused our machines to run out of memory within minutes. What eventually fixed this annoying behavior for us was to install the most current beta driver from nvidia - version 364.12 at the time of writing. It appears to be ...
