Description of problem:
After change kernel from 2.4.23-pre6 to 2.6-test8 in System Monitor info about
memory & swap utilization is wrong. I see that it is used 0 bytes of 4K of
memory and 0 bytes of 11K of swap (second values change sametimes).
I think Top's report is correct. Maybe problem is not in System Monitor but in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Linux with 2.6-test8 kernel
2.Open System Monitor
3.Look at memory & swap utilization

After your report I had changed bug qualification from system-monitor
to libgtop (at gnome Bugzilla
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134422)) and I got reply
Does FC2-test1 contain actual version of libgtop? Try to upgrade (if
accessible) and if everything goes ok mark bugs as RESOLVED.
Sorry for the bugspam... adding myself to cc list
I'm running FC2-test1, and am seeing the same problem.
What libgtop2 version do You have? libgtop2-2.5.1-1 ? If not try to
upgrade to FC development version (e.g. from
People from Gnome said that this problem was solved and shouldn't
exist in libgtop2 versions released after January (but in FC2-test1 is
file created on 26 January which can be too old).
I updated today, and the problem is indeed fixed now.
I think I can mark this bug as RESOLVED (of course if I had needed
privileges :) ).
To the next bug ;)
