Subject description: 2.15
 

I have 256mb ram, but the 2.15 version tells me I only have 9.1 mb free after it loads! I burned a multisession cd. The machine is a gateway 850 p3 with 256mb ram. I ran memtest with knoppix and am using knoppix now live cd wise.

There are partitions on the hd and two hd's installed, each has a swap for a total of almost a gig of swap between the two. Knoppix finds both swap files fine and uses them.

Even the internet was 'boggy' with 2.15 unlike 2.11 that I had been using from a fixated cdrom.

????

Your whole cd is only 134 mb... ???? shouldn't cause the memory problems I experienced.

Freememapplet reports the amount of free space in the pup_save.2fs, NOT free RAM, if you did a Frugal (Coexist) install.

Use the Menu>Utility>Resize personal storage file utility to increase the size your pup_save.2fs storage file. It will require a reboot to take effect. Your system should then fly.

Hope that helps
