  • CPU: AMD A10-6800K

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Radeon HD 8670D
Replaced 2.8 with a fresh install of 3.4. With a separate /home partition, most of my settings and all my data were kept as I wanted. I'd been playing with a 3.2 virtual machine for sometime, as well as a hard install of the 3.4 beta on some older hardware, so I had notes on all the changes I wanted to make. The whole process went smoothly and took less than two hours. Everything appears to be working well.

Thanks to all for the great system!

When you upgrade to 3.4, you may find your system starting to use more swap again. That's because it may have reset the 'vm.swappiness' value back to the default value of 60. If you got lots of RAM, suggest you change it back to a low value (like 10).

Do a 'cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness' from a terminal to check its value.

To humdinger70: thanks for tip. Installed LL 3.4 on an extra machine that has 8gb ram. As you said, swappiness was 60 & I changed it to 10. Thanks again.

Thanks for the tip! But the issue still exists! Changed the swap value to 10 on my laptop and still have 900mb-1gb ram usage!  :-[

Close absolutely every single application that is open. Then open Lite Tweaks, Clear Memory. Then report total memory usage in Resource Usage.

You're running a web server? I see apache running. I see clamav running too just to name a few. No issue here, you're just running a lot of of things in the background that you've installed. Also be weary of web browsers that claim to be fast. The trade off is that they are memory hogs.

It's a test web server (probably forgot to switch it completely off -_-). Already had that applications on 3.2 (i upgraded) and no ram issues thats why it seemed strange to me! I'm going to uninstall some applications to see whats going on! Thanks for your tips, have a good one!

3.4 is working great for me but Lite Desktop Widget is totally missing. Menu, Settings, Session and Startup, Application Autostart doesn't list it. Menu search shows nothing and Synaptic doesn't list it. Can you provide any info?
As mentioned earlier, this was a new install over 2.8 and not an upgrade from 3.2.

Hmmm... you can manually add it then:

Menu, Settings, Session and Startup, Application Autostart, +Add

Name: Lite Desktop Widget
Description: Display system information on the Desktop
Command: bash -c "sleep 5; ~/.conky/start"

Sorry for seeming stupid and preferring Linux - I just don't know any better.
