X-Windows Virtual Memory Problem

X-Windows Virtual Memory Problem

Post by Jonathan McDona » Sat, 08 Jun 1996 04:00:00

I'm having Virtual Memory problems for X-Windows. I have  8Mb Ram and
20 mb Swap space.  X-Windows starts up, clear desktop, usual basic
setup.  Anyway, when I try to load a terminal up or a program the cpu
gets busy with activity but to no avail, nothing loads up.  I got a
e-mail message from CRON to root and it said that the Virtual Memory
was exhausted.  
Can anybody shine any light on the subject? or was in a similar

Also one more question, where can I find the file that contains BASH
shell path?

I'm new to Linux :) so any helpp would be appreciated.

1. X-windows in Windows 95 and type writers in X-windows


I have 3 questions about X-windows:

Is there a good graphical bases typewriter (not editor) in which
i can write and layout text in x-windows, without using a bunch
of codes as in e.g. latech.

Is it possible to make a telnet like connection in a MS windows
based PC to a unix machine which is capable to run the X-windows
system. So i could use for example Xmaple when I am sitting home
where i dont have unix, but I do have a fast pc and internet.

Is there a special X-windows newsgroup?

Please e-mail me because i cant read the newsgroups so often.
