    With small memory you really need swap. And 4 gig is small these days

    Following your advice I've checked the system and noticed the SWAP partition was not mounted.
    I corrected that and now the SWAP is in used and the free memory has improved.

    Upgrading the system from a previous version may lead to an unmounted SWAP if the SWAP is reformatted, changing its UUID, and /etc/fstab is not changed as well and uses UUIDs to mount partitions.
    With the SWAP in use your RAM usage looks pretty normal now, you should not experience freezes anymore.
    I'm using Evolution as a mail client, so I'm not willing to disable it here, but I will come back if I find something useful.

    Trying to uninstall Evolution from a virtual machine install I ended up removing the following list of packages:
    Code:
    bijiben-lang
    evolution-data-server-lang
    evolution-ews-lang
    evolution-lang
    folks-lang
    gnome-contacts-lang
    gnome-maps-lang
    gnome-shell-calendar
    gnome-shell-search-provider-bijiben
    gnome-shell-search-provider-contacts
    evolution-ews
    bijiben
    gnome-contacts
    gnome-maps
    evolution
    libfolks-telepathy25
    libfolks-eds25
    libedataserverui-1_2-2
    libfolks25
    evolution-data-server
    libebook-1_2-19
    libedata-book-1_2-25
    libedata-cal-1_2-28
    libebackend-1_2-10
    libecal-1_2-19
    libebook-contacts-1_2-2
    libedataserver-1_2-23
    libcamel-1_2-61
    If you can really get without all of them you can uninstall all and spare some 200MB of RAM; I doubt that this is worth the effort, but your system... your choice.
    Expect a number of conflicts to be solved before the YaST-Software resolver accepts that list, maybe it is easier to start with the libe* packages.

    Thank you for your advice.
    With the swap activated, I no longer experience system freeze. well done.
    So I think I can accept to lose 200MB RAM, I will probably have more pb by removing all the evolution related packages.

    all the more as today I have an other pb : after lost of power supply when resuming from suspend, I no longer have internet connectivity..I'm going to start a new thread
