[CALUG] Fedora 11/12 and FF 3.5

Hopefully I'm replying to this properly, but to mention I had an issue with
FC11 and a memory leak, maybe I tweaked something on the install (though it
was a basic workstation install via their installer) after some testing it
was taking about 30hrs to eat 1.5GB of memory on my system. (By this I mean
I booted the system and let it sit at desktop, thirty hours later I ran top
and had 100MB of memory free, firefox and pigin were opened.)

I don't know if anyone else has had any issues with that or not, or if
there's a known fix, but I figured I mention this. Also I'm more than
willing to torrent a distro for anyone and bring ISOs to meetings.


P.S. Also, I put this system in place due to hardware failure so I didn't do
much in the way of troubleshooting FC11. At CPOSC and the last CALUG meeting
everyone seems to be talking about Ubuntu so I'm giving it a whirl. As I
write this with one FireFox 3.5 window open I am using almost a full gig of
RAM. I'm only posting the syntax incase I'm doing something wrong here and
giving bad input I openly admit to being abit of a nub with *nix.
