RE: Tux serving graphics only

Hi All,

I am a rather new user of Tux, I have installed and configured it as in
tux.readme. Now when I go to start it using 
'tux start' it says

"Cannot allocate memory: no RAM"

Can anybody please suggest ? I am using redhat 7.2 and Tux 2.1.0-2.

Does anyone here have experience getting tux to work on a recent 
Mandrake installation?

Such as Mandrake 9.0, 9.1 or 9.2?

Last time I tried, it would not recompile the kernel with tux 
enabled... though, I am unsure if the mdk kernels have included or 
discarded the tux code in the past couple revisions.

One of my customers is running a very high volume website, 65-75million 
hits/month  (~10million page views)  with heavy images and php mysql 

The server is a dual athlon 2000+ w/3.5G ram, U160 73G raid for main 
pages&images and 36G 15K U160 for mysql. The server is steadily slowing 
down under the user load and main partition becoming full of images 
(1-300MB/day incoming, only small% being removed...).  Apache2.0.44, 
php4.2.3, mysql4.0.13, Mandrake 9.0

Would tux help in this situation, or just suck more precious resources 
for a small% gain considering that 95% of the pages are dynamic mysql?

We are actively trying to move to a multi-server setup, but that will 
take some time to implement.
