SubjectRe: Kernel 2.6.0-test2 vs 2.2.12 -- Some observations
Date
Here's the output of the system coming up, and 'free' and 'cat /proc/meminfo'.  Don't have a version of top currently compiled for it, but 'uptime' says 0.00 0.00 0.00 after it's sitting idle a bit.

Linux version 2.6.0-slimedr (root@linux.private.com) (gcc version 2.96 20000731
