Default memory and rescource consumption

This would be a great how-to. Teach us how to lower memory and cpu usage yet, keep a balance with security and peice of mind.

Which brings to this question. What services can I disable and enable so that my "VPS" doesn't use so much memory? I commited my VPC to use 256mb of memory yet it persists in using 300mb. I set the swapfile the same as the tut for fedora 3 but I don't think it uses it . Does it really need 300mb? Can I lower it to 200mb? Does Gnome use memory even you aren't logged into the the gui?

You can run

Code:
ps aux
and

Code:
top
to see what's eating up your memory. And if you don't need the service, stop it.
And yes, Gnome's using memory. Why are you running a desktop on a server?

Yes, I know you are disappointed. I installed it just in case I need to do something I couldn't do in shell. I created a screen and I was wondering if you could help. I didn't install anything other than ez-ipupdate deamon RPM package which doesnt have a gui . Other than that, it's the stock install as you have instructed in that great How-To. Plus Gnome .

BTW, I did a YUM update and installed the new kernel plus all the updates. Things seam to be much faster and better response. I just hope it doesnt break ISPConfig during the process.

Damn Gnome munches down on memory. I don't know if I can trade the memory usage and how easy it is to configure if I was in gui. I gues I will have to ponder on that.

From what I gathered from memory, it's a HAL Deamon? I remember HAL being a sci-fi character and something to do with a processor.

Edit: here it is, hardware abstraction layer daemon for gnome's new hal. But I still don't know what it is..
