I'm using OS 9.0.4 on a Bondi iMac with 256 MB of built in ram, plus virtual memory is on for a total of 257 mb. I also have a disk cache of 7.96 MB, whatever that means.
Lately, I have been getting lots of "out of memory" errors- I can't print an e-mail from eudora on the Personal LaserWriter because of this error and often IE will tell me that there is not enough memory to run shockwave and one other plug in sometimes. This happens even if IE or eudora is the only thing running.
And then yesterday Mrs. Val had IE, eudora, Appleworks, Word and Excel 2001 and probably something else running too and no problems with out of memory errors.
I tried to allocate more memory to IE and eudora but it didn't help.
Any ideas? I'd be happy to respond with more information if anybody has any questions, but I thought I'd throw this one out there.
