    Subjectfree output still a bit fsck'ed...
    Hi,

    I've noticed this a few times before -- the +/- buffers info
    given by free goes negative sometimes.

    This from 2.1.63 while compiling kernels over NFS from localhost:

    pc29:~$ free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 62980 54244 8736 11860 4140
    -/+ buffers: 50104 4596
    Swap: 68508 4 68504 40484
    pc29:~$ free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 62980 59248 3732 14084 4140
    -/+ buffers: 55108 4193896
    Swap: 68508 4 68504 40656
    pc29:~$ free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 62980 58752 4228 14336 4204
    -/+ buffers: 54548 24
    Swap: 68508 4 68504 41060
    pc29:~$ free
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 62980 58424 4556 14060 4204
    -/+ buffers: 54220 352
    Swap: 68508 4 68504 41068

    Are these number supposed to be approximate, or is there a
    bug/race/whatever somewhere?

    Matthew.
