Subjectfree/cache/buffer horror in 2.4.13
From
Date
I apologize for posting this if this is something "normal". But i
noticed strange behaviour in 2.4.13

Machine:
intel PIII 500Mhz, 256Mb RAM kernel 2.4.13

I'm using linux almost 5 years from now, and I never seen such weird
thing. Machine is up 2-3 days after compiling kernel, and all was OK
but now I see ... this:


(root){crolvax}[mail]# free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 255768 146392 109376 0 75376 4294953228
-/+ buffers/cache: -4294882212 4295137980
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Swap: 530104 100612 429492

(root){crolvax}[mail]# cat /proc/meminfo

Is this behaviour normal? Log files and syslog are not reporting
anything about that.
