well, i used the "free" command while i was running crystal synth (with
"no memory lock" enabled - otherwise, no work) and it gave this output:
total used free shared buffers
Mem: 515292 458256 57036 0 11888
-/+ buffers/cache: 188064 327228
Swap: 666688 1732 664956
so yes, i am using way more than half of my ram and a tiny bit of swap
... stupid gkrellm :(
should this be preventing me from using memory lock in jack?
