Fedora :: Minimize / Prevent The Memory Leak Other Than Waiting For The Next Version Of Gnome 3?

May 27, 2011

I'm using Fedora 15 with Gnome 3 on a 32 bit laptop. I noticed that there seems to be a huge memory leak issue with Gnome shell. When I restart it, it is around 20 MB. But it keeps rising, and after around eight hours, I noticed it was around 250 MB! I found a solution online that said to simply restart the shell if the gnome-shell memory consumption becomes too large. While this is fine as a temporary solution, I am looking for a permanent one. Is there a way to minimize/prevent the memory leak other than waiting for the next version of Gnome 3?

Programming :: Memory Leak In C++?

Mar 3, 2011

I'm currently developping a program in C++, using Qt, for an embedded board (SBC9261).It works well but crashes after some time, due to a system memory overload (my program uses more and more memory until 100%, when it crashes).I've been able to figure out the source of the memory leak :The function f is called by my program every second. f instanciates a new object (a QImage from the Qt lib), does a bunch of processing on it, and returns it to the calling function :

QImage *MyClass::f(QString filename) {// Open image
QImage *image = new QImage(filename);

Hardware :: Memory Leak On CentOS?

Jan 24, 2011

root@XXXXX:~# uname -a Linux myserver 2.6.18-194.11.4.el5 #1 SMP Tue Sep 21 05:40:24 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux I'm having serious memory leak issues on a server running CentOS. Running 'top' I can't find any proccess with an unusual memory usage. Is there any other way to check what is using this memory? Right now it shows that I have 4.8GB of RAM used, but top shows only few proccesses, one with 4% and lots of 0.0%.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Serious Xorg Memory Leak KDE 4.2 OS 11.0?

Feb 3, 2009

I have 4 gigs of ram and xorg goobles up 70+% in a matter of an hour or so. I'm running a java app with lots of 2D graphics, firefox, pidgin, and one other java app. I recently upgraded to KDE 4.2 and got dual ATI firepro 3700 cards running 3 22" widescreens. The memory gets eaten until my java app crashes.

I'm using the fglrx driver as it seems the radeonhd one doesn't recognize the firepro 3700. Can one only have a single KDE4 version on the machine. I would like to be able to swtch back and forth between 4.1 and 4.2 in order to troubleshoot without all the downloading and installing in yast.

Server :: Malloc-64 Memory Leak/trashing?

Mar 2, 2011

I'm afraid I have a huge issue with my newest Fedora 14 server. I recently migrated to Fedora 14 from Centos 5, which was very stable, but had ancient packages and libraries and my users were revolting...The machine is a HP ProLiant 360 G7, with 12G RAM and 6 SAS drives in RAID 5.After I migrated to Fedora 14, I noticed that for some reason, during the course of about 24 hours, all usable RAM "disappears" and applications are forced down to swap space. Needless to say I didn't have this issue on CentOS.

The server does heavy IO as per it's function (it's a heavily loaded file processing server and user simulation computing station among other things, which causes lots of random IO), so I thought it may be the cache, but then I realized it cannot be - because obviously Linux will use onyl "unused" RAM for caching and frees it up as soon as an app need it. Then, I thought to check the "slabtop" to see what's going on in Kernel memory. Unfortunately I don't have the screenshot from the time just before the latest crash, but there's a certain value displayed by slabtop, which slowly, byte-from-byte creeps over all available RAM, eventually forcing applications down to the swap. This is malloc-64, and as you can see from the bellow copy-paste, it's building up again even now...

Active / Total Objects (% used) : 9118075 / 9153600 (99.6%)
Active / Total Slabs (% used) : 152157 / 152157 (100.0%)

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 195.36.24 Driver 10.04 Lucid Memory Leak?

May 21, 2010

I dont know if this issue has already been solved, or if there are other threads dealing with it, but Im quite desperate with this bug that has been annoying me since I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04.

Firs I thought it would be GEM related, but Im using a proprietary graphics card, so thats not the way to solve it. I experience the problems a memory leak provokes, mainly that, as time goes by with the laptop turned on, the system needs more resources to execute simple actions, and it freezes too many times. Plus IBUS will, suddenly, stop working (I still don't know if it is related or not), and, most of the times I log in, Notification Area 2.30.0 will load with errors.

Ubuntu Installation :: Memory Leak Lenovo Ideapad Y560?

Nov 18, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.4 and everything works great "out of the box"! I didn't install any drivers.blem, a major one...When I type "top" right after a reboot, around 1GB of RAM is in use. After a few min it grows to 2GB, even 2.5GB for no reason. Luckily, my machine has 6GB of RAM but it's still a major issue for me.I read on another forum another user with the same problem on the same Lenovo machine and he solved it by installing the newest driver for his ATI device. I don't have ATI, but I have the impression that I can solve my problem the same way. Do you have any idea what driver my cause that? I checked the Intel site for a new Intel HD graphics driver but they don't have ones for Linux.

CentOS 5 :: Apache Memory Leak Since Glibc-2.5-42.el5_4.2 Update?

Jan 4, 2010

I updated several packages on one of my servers on Dec 21st and have been seeing excessive swapfile usage since then. The problem process seems to be httpd which in our environment runs a subversion server as well as serving a number of php pages over https. At present I am having to bounce apache approximately every 5 days as it has used all 8GB swap in that time.


Of the updates listed as installed, the only one that looks likely to affect apache is glibc. Looking at the stats from sar -r I can see swap usage increasing by approx 3% (of 8GB) every hour.

Fedora :: Minimize Resize Close Buttons Window 15 Gnome 3 Gconf 2

Jun 4, 2011

No where are how enable get back minimize resize close buttons windows top tab Fedora 15 Gnome3 gconf2

There is a question about this in this thread but the thread title did not have any of the above words in it and since most "new" folks don't think to use the "posts" option, I thought I'd make a new titled post.

This seems to be a big irritant of a lot of people around the net with Gnome 3 so I'm going to confirm what other people have said about how to fix the situation.

In "add software" enter this search term:


You will see quite a few returns, you should click the following:

A process-transparent configuration system (G Conf1-2.3 yada yada)

Graphical Gconf untilities (it may be pulled with the above however).

Install it/them.

One can then type "Gconf2" in terminal and it will open but then close when the terminal is closed, or one can go to activities/applications/tweak advanced settings( the symbol will be the same as for settings in Gnome 3).

In the "Shell" button one will see "Arrangement of buttons on the title bar". Surprisingly, "All" will already be apparent. One need merely verify that it is on "all".

Close gconf.

Nothing will have happened in terms of new buttons even if one closes and opens, say FireFox.

Then reboot.

After the reboot, all three buttons will be present.

There are not a LOT of configuration items in gconf2 but this one seems to be of paramount importance to a lot of people.

One can also do it from command line, and if someone wants to post that please feel free it won't hurt my feelings.

Fedora :: Prevent Some Apps From Appearing In Gnome 3 (Activities->Applications)

Jun 11, 2011

I don't want to install alacarte to do this. I've copied the .desktop files from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications that I don't want appearing in the gnome 3 applications list (e.g., email settings for evolution), and added 'NoDisplay=true' to the end of each desktop file. Restarted gnome shell, even tried logging out and back in, but they still appear there. Previously, in gnome2, desktop files under the home dir superceded the global directory. Do I need to edit them directly as root to effect the changes, or could this be a selinux problem?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Version 10 Won't Boot After Installing 4Gb Of System Memory

May 9, 2009

I have been using for over a year now, my 64-bit computer first with Fedora 8 and now with Fedora 10 with 2Gb of RAM just fine. Today I purchased an extra 2Gb for the system and upon installation from the GRUB screen Fedora 10 simply won't boot. It does boot with 3Gb, and it doesn't matter which stick I use for the 3Gb configuration, or what slot do I put the sticks into the motherboard, however if I place the four sticks, F10 simply won't boot. Should I pass a command line argument tot he kernel? If so, which?

Debian Multimedia :: Save Gnome Minimize Window Always On Top Option?

May 15, 2011

When I open either my user or root terminal, by right-clicking on the Minimise Window option in the top right-hand corner (beside the Restore Window and Close Window options), if I tick the Always on Top option from the drop-down menu, then the terminal Window (or any other window when this option is selected) will not minimise automatically on clicking the mouse in another open window like, for example, Iceweasel. This is particularly useful, for example, when cutting and pasting commands from the browser to the terminal and I recommend it. But how can the Always on Top option be set to permanent for a specific program, like the the Terminal so that it will be saved for the next time one logs in to a Gnome session?
