Sorry, I should have been clearer... my real problem seems to be that I'm
swapping like crazy -- even worse during a compile. In order to minimize
HD seeks, long ago I setup my Linux on sdb and the primary swap on part
of sda which still contains the original Win7...
NAME TYPE SIZE USED PRIO
/dev/sda2 partition 20G 4G -1
/dev/sdb5 partition 19.7G 0B -2
Looks like no matter how much RAM I have, it eventually gets used
up... :} [as my recollection drifts back to the days where replacing a
4KB chip with a 16KB one on a TRS-80 was a huge memory upgrade... LOL]
Sorry for the noise; maybe this will help someone someday... :)
