    It's definitely working now.

    Does it work even after rebooting?

    It seems to be working now. Dunno why it didn't before though. Feel free to post here again if you have the same problem again in the future.

    And don't worry about RAM usage. You'll find the system is set up to make the best use of the resources available. It's no use having all that RAM if it's just gathering dust, is it?

    It's speeding up your system by keeping things in RAM, and once you start to fall short it'll kick some things out again. Sometimes you even see a decline in RAM usage after you load up another application.

    I ran this right after a fresh boot.
