Peppermint is getting Resource hungry?
« on: January 23, 2020, 02:35:54 am »
Hello everyone.
So when I first installed Peppermint os 10 respin, It used to allocate 390MB of my RAM after booting up the computer.
But after some update and installing LibreOffice, Audacity, Audacious and VLC, Now when I boot up the pc it allocates 597MB of my Ram.
Is this normal?

One thing comes to mind that after you performed the installs that some background service/program is running that was not before.  I would open the resource monitor to see what is running so you can confirm what is taking up the RAM.

on idle with compositing & conky active im only getting about 435mb ram, my guess is either some process didnt shutdown properly or theres something like an updater running just after boot. i also have all the above programs instead plus a few more so have a look at htop and see whats using the memory.
For wallpapers ive made you can download them here
