Same problem when booting from DVD.
Free memory decreases slowly but constantly.
So, you've booted from DVD and then what? Just left the machine alone? Please try to provide as much detail as possible - we need to get to the bottom of this.
Booted from DVD, closed the installer window, and just let it alone.
After a while the screenblanker gets active and from time to time I hit <space> to deactivate it.
That's on a iBook G4 14" with 512MB.
I'm currently trying on another iBook G4 12". It seems to have the same effect. After booting it had 5.3% used memory.
By now (after 2 hours) it has 6.2% used memory. I'll let it run for a day to see if it's really increasing.
