This question already has an answer here:
Please, the memory and the cache are getting to the full level quite quickly under my linux mint 9 - isadora system. I used Ubuntu and Debian before, and it was not causing this issue at all. At the current time i typing the following command frequently to empty the cache "echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches".
Please any way around this? or do you know what's going wrong? | I am only programming on this machine; no graphics, no games nothing.
Thanks in advance for your help!
