    Allocate Memory to Certain Process?


    Hello guys!

    Here is my output for

    Code:
    jun@jun:~$ free
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:       2961916    1472280    1489636          0     122132     921636
    -/+ buffers/cache:     428512    2533404
    Swap:      3197948          0    3197948
    jun@jun:~$
    May I please ask if it's possible to tweak my system to make use of the "free-1472280" to a certain process? And how can I do it please if ever.

    Thanks!

    regards,

    If the Linux kernel needs memory for a process, don't worry, it'll take it - or crash your system if none is left. but there probably is plenty.
