One thing I fight with on Linux is RAM and SWAP that is being used in 10ths of GBs, yet tools like htop don't show any processes using that much memory (even when run as super user). I know that disk reads are cached, this is not the problem here though. What is eating up my RAM? Why I cannot identify processes that allocated this memory? How can I reclaim it without rebooting my system?
Help!

Wow, the Garuda Linux community really can't take any critcism...
forum.garudalinux.org/t/first-
I come to help them make their distro better and they close my topic after mocking me and refusing to discuss anything with merit.
Way to go.
Maybe I should make a video about this? :D

If you've been lurking on Fosstodon, intimidated by the more technical toots, feeling imposter syndrome, or just afraid to jump in, please toot an introduction, ask questions, learn, get to know others. There's nothing to be afraid of. This is a friendly and welcoming instance. Almost all of us want to get to know you except for a few grumps.😃

My Crust of Rust episode on subtyping and variance in is now up at youtu.be/iVYWDIW71jk. Even though it's a thorny topic that I'm fairly new to myself, I _think_ we managed to explain the concepts and their practical implications without too many 🍿 moments.

Hi all,

The company I work for (recently surpassed 500 full-time employees) is looking for helpdesk technicians and Sysadmins in the Montreal and Quebec City areas. If you're interested or want more information, send me a DM or an email at linuxliaison@fastmail.com.

If you know someone who's looking for a job, send them my way :)

Salut tout le monde! Mon ami de travail fait un stream de 24h avec ses amis, au profit d'Opération Enfant Soleil et Extra Life. Si vous pouvez dropper une visite pour y parler (et p-e faire un don), ça serait très apprécié!
