Description Christian Karlsen 2002-08-01 00:24:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020702

I first thought this was an issue with 'ps' (BUG: 70358) since 'free' and 'top'
 shows a normal and correct memory usage, but after some researching I found out
that ps shows normal memory usage with other kernels (I tested with
2.4.19-pre10). See the URL for the output.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.18-7.80

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.type 'ps aux'
