I'm also using 2.1.130, for a couple days now. I only have 64MB memory,
128MB swap. As of this moment:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 63248 40928 22320 15500 6576 18272
-/+ buffers/cache: 16080 47168
Swap: 130748 94372 36376

This does not seem reasonable to me. I would like to use the little RAM
that I have, not the disk drive. Because all I'm doing right now is typing
this, what is shown above is pretty stable. As soon as I start compiling
something, it'll change, of course.
