    I updated last week to centos 4.4 running on a kernel 2.6.9-34.0.2.ELsmp. Everything was working stable. My box has 2 GB of RAM, and i had everyday like 1.5gb used and 500mb free.

    Today I updated to the new kernel 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp and I have everytime 1.9gb and and 99mb of free mem.

    whats going on, anyone is having this issue with this?? why eats more memory now?

    Thanks

    this is what I have when I ran free -m

    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 2026 1982 43 0 264 1235
    -/+ buffers/cache: 482 1544
    Swap: 1027 0 1027

    says 43mb free, tell me if its ok. Before the kernel update I had between 500 - 200mb free.

    Other thing I noticed, when I run ps aux, appeared some things I dont know that they are, and services Ive disabled.
    This are:

    gpm -m /dev/input/mice -t exps2 ?? (mouse support)????
    cupsd (printing service) Ive disabled it, but when i booted is running again!
    /bin/sh /etc/rc3.d/S99local start (what is this??)

    thank you

    your ram is fine you have over 1500 M free & in the cache

    /sbin/chkconfig cups off
    /sbin/chkconfig gpm off


    cups is printer
    gpm is mouse

    I did that but when I reboot this services appear again running :eek:
    Is there a way to get rid of them permanently?

    thanks!
