ok currently running Cassandra XFCE
after booting, going to the terminal and using top reveals that im using over 400mb
right now top is saying 468... all ive done so far would be run a terminal, connect to the internet and open Firefox
maybe someone can give me a clue
services running - ive never added anything, ive actually turned off a number of them
5 user accounts have been created (not sure if that should be a factor)
all defaulted autostarting applications have been turned off (ie. update notification)
hardware specs (P3 667mhz, 768 of RAM). Using a dual boot (XP and Mint) from two separate HDs.
i cant think of where at least 200mb of ram is going.
any help? thanks
