I’m on kernel 4.13.12, using Cinnamon 3.6.2.
I’m having a memory problem with Antergos: I have 8 GBs of memory, but with only a few hours of use my memory becomes full and the system has to use swap and everything gets real freaking slow, to the point where I can only use the mouse and my applications won’t respond to my interactions. Even logging to a TTYL takes a bit of time.
Today I realised that by playing Tibia (it’s an old MMO), the process starts with little memory, then it keeps asking the system for more, a few minutes in I was using 7 goddamn gigabytes of memory and of course, everything froze. I didn’t have this problem when I played it before formatting my PC though.
I think it’s important to say that I’ve got swappiness set to 10, since I don’t want my system to rely on swap memory any more than needed.
Does anyone have any suggestion on things I could try or maybe ways to diagnose the issue more accurately?
