one part of the hard drive is set at 128mb and the second is set at 3.7 gb

Posted by abracadabra on Nov. 15 2006,06:39I have a similar problem. I have a 366mhz / 192mb / 390mb swap. I dl'd openoffice (it was a tar.gz file) and it placed icons on my desktop once complete. When i load the mdsl openoffice extension the swap file gets used and goes from 0mb used to 190mb used. this all seems normal i guess. but when i click on any of the oo icons the system does nothing. Please help!
