The top(1) output above indicates that only about 268 MB of physical memory exists (real + free) -- not 1 GB. The system is also running very close to the swap limit (about 1.7 GB are active out of 2 GB). > *ldm queue not set, ldm off* > > NO QUEUE, ldmadmin off > System: hmr-1 Sun Jan 15 > 14:26:56 2006 > Load averages: 0.03, 0.07, 0.05 > 146 processes: 126 sleeping, 19 running, 1 zombie > Cpu states: > LOAD USER NICE SYS IDLE BLOCK SWAIT INTR SSYS > 0.03 0.0% 0.0% 0.4% 99.6% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% > > Memory: 66932K (52740K) real, 690316K (590216K) virtual, 203000K free > Page# 1/1 Again, the above indicates that only about 270 MB of physical memory exists (real + free). It's possible that one of more of the memory chips aren't seated correctly or are faulty. It's also possible that top(1) is lying. You can check this by executing, as root, the command "dmesg | less". Search for "mem". The operating-system apparently copies the memory-mapped product-queue into the swap file because the amount of in-use swap-space increases from about 690 MB to about 1.7 GB when the LDM is running. I suspect that the operating-system is deciding that a larger product-queue can't be supported. If dmesg(1) indicates that you, indeed, have 2 GB of physical memory, then I suggest increasing the size of the swap file.
