I use ubuntu and found it really frustrating that it stops working really frequently. The circumstances are:
- Opened Android Studio WITHOUT any emulators (I mean device emulator, I use real devices for debugging).
- Opened Chrome with 4-5 tabs. Bug reproduction scenario is as simple as it is: open one or two more tabs in Chrome, then Chrome goes grey and entire system stops responding to any input event. REALLY rarely it happens so I can open console and kill Chrome processes, but not anytime. Only thing what's left is Alt+PrintScreen+REISUB, which reboots the system.
My PC's specs are:
4Gb DDR2 RAM
Quad Core Intel CPU
Radeon R9 270x video
Are 4Gb not enough, or there is another reason for such behavior? What's for Windows, it does not crush entirely when some app starts consuming too much memory, it just closes the app, so goes for Android, btw. So, my questions are:
- What can be the cause of my suffering(unresponsive Ubuntu)?
- If it's RAM, are there some kind of apps that'll help the system to handle such situations correctly?
UPDATE: I looked at the limits.conf file and found the following info:
#<domain> <type> <item> <value> # #* soft core 0 #root hard core 100000 #* hard rss 10000 #@student hard nproc 20 #@faculty soft nproc 20 #@faculty hard nproc 50 #ftp hard nproc 0 #ftp - chroot /ftp #@student - maxlogins 4
I'm suspecting, that 100000 Kb limit is the reason. Am I right?
