    I have a different problem with this figures. Shouldn't
    Active+Inactive+Cached+Buffers+MemFree == MemTotal?

    In fact I was about to also post a cat of meminfo because
    I'm having really poor interactive perfomance on my G4-500
    with 2.4.14-pre5-ben0 and I think it's memory related. The
    problems weren't that bad a few subreleases ago.

    total: used: free: shared: buffers: cached:
    Mem: 261517312 252518400 8998912 0 1175552 66686976
    Swap: 268427264 79831040 188596224
    MemTotal: 255388 kB
    MemFree: 8788 kB
    MemShared: 0 kB
    Buffers: 1148 kB
    Cached: 49420 kB
    SwapCached: 15704 kB
    Active: 49748 kB
    Inactive: 60160 kB
    HighTotal: 0 kB
    HighFree: 0 kB
    LowTotal: 255388 kB
    LowFree: 8788 kB
    SwapTotal: 262136 kB
    SwapFree: 184176 kB

    All the machine is running right now is the GNOME desktop, a mailreader
    and a webbrowser as well as 4 terminals.
