well I had enormous swap problems in 7.2 with 2.4.4 and 256 megs of ram. the motherbard which was a cheapo didn't help. I moved to a new motherbard, use 2.4.7 and have 512 megs in it and it doesn't swap anymore. I still don't trust it though since I got nfs/nis turned off too to lower the load.
There was that root exploit in < 2.4.12. SuSE released updates to the kernel just last week but they didn't release a 2.4.12 or so kernel but patched a 2.4.7. I hate it when they do this. The suse kernels tie us down with patches and I am always scared to update a kernel myself feeling I break features of my distro by doing so.
why can't suse stick to a Linus or alan kernel and rather than spend time patching this and that work on getting these patches into the linus or alan kernel?
this is getting insane and kernels today are more forked than they ever have been.
Hey dude what kernel are u using?
I use Linus 2.4.13-ac4-aa23-pre6 patched up to comply with suse distro 7.3 otpimized for amd k6-2 up to 4 gb of ram patched up with -acl-ea support for ext3 from acl.bestbits.at.
Hey I love choice and all but all of this is getting too complicated and I lose sight of what actually my kernel include and doesn't include.

Scratch that last mail about success. Something started eating VM up
around 3 minutes ago. Looks like 2.4.X problem above 2.4.7..this blows
and is way unacceptable. To have 167M of RAM open and 28M of swap taken
up is just unacceptable. *sigh* Something's up.
