yes, it was at 0. I echoed 8 millions into it, and now apache
starts. I had no problem with X though.
And, yes, I do have powertweak installed.
It can be configured by editing /etc/powertweak.config directly,
because powertweak-config looks like it is not finished yet (at least
in Debian).

What is a reasonable value to put in there ?
