Are these actually different? Or do I really have redundant instances running? I'm concerned because I have an old system with limited RAM, and all the plugins together make an impact. If they are all neccessary and needed for RipperX, is there a way to have them load up when RipperX is started, rather than at boot-time? I'm still new to Ubuntu, if I can provide any other helpful info, please let me know.
Thanks for any input.
