Realtek Ethernet card disconnnects randomlyview story

http://askubuntu.com – My laptop has a Realtek RTL8168 Ethernet card, which works pretty well. Except at some times, where the connection just gets dropped and I have to un- and replug the cable in order to reset the connection. I've tried the preinstalled r8169 module, but now I'm using the r8168 module built with the source from Realtek's website. (HowTos)

X.org is allocating more than 900MB of RAM but xrestop says ~1/40th of that is actually used; how I force it to free the rest without restarting X?view story

http://askubuntu.com – So X.org is allocating an insane amount of RAM: right now 910MB (according to the RES column in htop), second only to Firefox (really Nightly) (at just over 1GB) and trailed by GNOME Shell (at only 256MB). I searched online for ways to force X to free leaked memory, and what I found suggested using xrestop to spot the cause. (HowTos)

[SOLVED] ttf-oxygen isn't then is then isn't a dependencyview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – alphaniner, after the initial -Rs failed to work as expected, I actually attempted `pacman -Qtd` to list orphans. This didn't list ttf-oxygen, so I presume that -Rs is recursive. (Or at least, lack of recursiveness is not to blame here.)
