Re: OOM killer "Out of Memory: Killed process" SOLUTIONS / SUMMARY



64bits is not an option cause we have some applications (homemade)  that are
not 64bits compatible,  there's a chance to migrate them to 64 but nothing
in the short term.

I configured the kernel to use less memory now, so ill see how it goes and
ill post my results.


cheers,
C
