MT-NW Manual: Frequently Asked Questions
Important Note: Your humble authors got tired of writing dry formal technical prose in the rest of this document, and succumbed to the temptation to try to be funny in parts of this appendix. Sarcasm abounds here. Please do not take any of this personally! The humor-impaired should interpret my comments not as attacks on them, but as an attempt to make fun of myself for being impatient with you, my devoted and valued, if sometimes demanding, users.
All of Memory FAQ
Consult your user/owner's manual for details about the original memory configuration and capacity. If you've misplaced the manual, you may be able to contact the retailer where you bought the PC from. If you have a hand-me-down PC or inherited a pre-owned PC, you probably may not have the user manual or know any detail of the original memory configuration or the memory configuration may have been changed.
LessTif Frequently Asked Questions
Obviously we don't like memory leaks in LessTif. A couple of tests have been done with commercial memory analysis tools, some of the apps in the tests/ tree help tracking some leaks as well. We believe we're not doing really bad. In fact we did run some simple comparisons with official Motif 1.2.
Ritual abuse FAQ
For many years, screen memory meant a sensory memory fragment that carried the emotion of the entire event. Thus a child who was staring down while being scolded might later only remember his or her shoes, along with a vivid sense of shame and anger. Or a whiff of cinnamon might evoke all the feelings of watching grandmother cook. In mind control terms, and more increasingly in general usage, a screen memory is a memory that hides, or screens, another memory.
Environment settings set by a batch file are not working.
Virtual Memory makes up for the lack of RAM in computers by using space on the hard disk as memory, Virtual Memory. When the actual RAM fills up (actually its before the RAM fills) then virtual memory is created on the hard disk. When physical memory runs out, the Virtual Memory Manager chooses sections of memory that have not been recently used and are of low priority and writes them to the swap file.
DOS FAQ by Christoph Fuchs
The first 640 KB of your RAM are called "conventional memory" under DOS. DOS can only address this first 640 KB of RAM directly, the other part won't be recognized if you don't load a memory manager like himem.sys. Most programs need a special amount of conventional memory to run, so it would be good to have as much free memory as possible within this 640 KB. How can you do this? Well, that's not quite difficult, but it is not fairly easy.
All of Memory FAQ
More memory will not increase the speed of the CPU, but it will reduce the time a CPU spends waiting for information from a hard drive. Since RAM provides data to a CPU faster than a hard drive, you will not have to wait as long for programs to execute. ensure environment is static safe by removing any unwanted plastic, bags from your workbench. Keep the computer system plugged into your AC unit but ensure that the power switch on the PC is turned off.
Unofficial comp.os.linux.development.* FAQ
On Linux you can use sysconf(_SC_PHYS_PAGES) to get the number of physical pages available on the system. This number does exclude some reserved pages, but it basically gives you the right number to use in your applications. You can use sysconf(_SC_PAGE_SIZE) to find out how large each page is. Notice that you cannot just multiply the two numbers to find the number of bytes of physical memory, as that multiplication might cause an overflow.

All media files that you use in the Blog Service are managed in the memory of the MAGIX Online Album.

PremioPC.com - S650 Series FAQ
You need to use an AGP video card; that will automatically disable the onboard video and free up the system memory.
The amount of memory rdiff-backup uses should not depend much on the size of directories being processed. Keeping track of hard links may use up memory, so if you have, say, hundreds of thousands of files hard linked together, rdiff-backup may need tens of MB. If rdiff-backup seems to be leaking memory, it is probably because it is using an early version of librsync. librsync 0.9.5 leaks lots of memory. Later versions should not leak and are available from the librsync homepage.
