Have noticed by running top, that after a some extended use, that the memory cache gets larger and larger, like right now mine is using 895 megs according to top, 116 megs buff and a whopping 537 megs in cache.

Any way to clear that out some? When I first fired it up last night it was using a fraction of that. I know it helps things along, just want to be able to zero it out now and then.

Is there a package with a bleachbit type utility by any chance?

Thanks for everything guys, i'm bragging about Puppy big-time, and with good reason, my friend who has a much newer and more expensive gaming rig came over earlier and about crapped himself when he saw how fast my old cobbled together machine is, lol!.

Hi Dragynn

Works well BTW.
