[mythtv-users] Possible Crashing Solution

I recently upgraded to Fedora 1, which is great by the way.  Anyways, once 
I had upgraded I started running into a problem with my system crashing 
every night.  I finally narrowed it down to mythfilldatabase.  After some 
further testing, and even when not testing, mythfrontend would crash on me 
when doing things in the background.

The problem was that I didn't have enough ram.  I was using 256 with my 
RedHat 9 system without any problems, but apparently Fedora needs a bit 
more, and without it just shuts down programs that are demanding too 
much?  something like that..

I popped in another 128 and things seemed to work better, but it still 
occasionally crashed.  Finally, after adding another 128 for a total of 
512, I find that things run nicely.  Display from my pvr250s even seems a 
bit smoother, not much though.

If you are seeing any problems, this might be the problem.
