linux and video memory management on a dell latitude
My notebook only has 4mb or 8 mb of ram. this is the only sore spot in its flawless character. When I am surfing the web I often have 25 or 30 windows open at one time. Is there some way with Linux to tell the computer to use some of the memory on the motherboard for videoram? Is there some install that would be better suited to do this task? I will be shortly upgrading the ram to 512 mb so will have a handy surplus.
Thanks for any suggestions you have.
