Ah, that's pretty useful. Is there somewhere a web page on this, so
that I can ask less stupid questions in future ;)

Interesting though that it seems to leak memory (?) or something, so
that I can watch just one video in a single sessson, trying to run
mplayer second time puts Zaurus into a continuous swapping mode and
usually it's easier just to reset the device. Is there any cure to this?
P.S. Waited patiently until it become at least partialy responsive
(took about 1 hour just to close mplayer :)). Very strange situation:
Tasks: 65 total, 1 running, 64 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 0.3%us, 9.5%sy, 0.0%ni, 0.0%id, 89.0%wa, 1.2%hi, 0.0%si
Mem: 62364k total, 33328k used, 29036k free, 60k buffers
Swap: 0k total, 0k used, 0k free, 704k cached
PID USER PR VIRT RES %CPU %MEM TIME+ GROUP COMMAND
60 root 10 0 0 6.0 0.0 7:36.15 root kswapd0
And with 29Mb free it swaps intensively and constantly, almost
impossible to do anything, launching top takes minutes.
It's a mystery to me what kswapd0 does with 29Mb RAM free.
