Briefly describe your issue below:
This is more of a question than it is a problem:
So, two months ago, i installed the lastest version of parrot available. But during apt ugrade
(sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade)
it filled all the RAM and froze, so I had to uninstall it.
I reinstalled today and it hapened again:
It incrementally used all the RAM available. I ctrl+c before it reached 100% and it came down to the base 20% used. I re ran the command and it incrementally used it again to download the rest of packets.
When actually unpacking and installing, it stayed at a 27% of RAM usage.
I now know I can stop the download and rerun the command for large enough downloads but:
Is it normal?
IS there a workaround or fix other than “add more RAM”?
Using swap is not an option beacause both disks I have are SSD
I have 8GB of RAM and no swap due to the reason mentioned above. I’m planning on adding another 8GB ram module to the laptop but for now I have to stick with what I have
