Subject: [gentoo-user] artsd using a TON of memory
Date: Sun, 29 Jan 2006 10:28:49

I have noticed this for a while but can't figure it out.  After I have
been logged into KDE for a long while, artsd starts using a LOT of
memory.  Keep in mine this rig has 1GB or ram if you go by the
percentage.  This is from top:

Why is it using so much memory? Is this a bug with KDE 3.5 and I need to report it? Any ideas at all. Come on Holly, you have to know something about this. LOL Oh, I can log out and back in, it's back to normal. I hate logging out almost as much as I hate to reboot. I like my slideshow OK. o_O What you folks think?? Dale :-) -- To err is human, I'm most certainly human. I have four rigs: 1: Home built; Abit NF7 ver 2.0 w/ AMD 2500+ CPU, 1GB of ram and right now two 80GB hard drives. Named Smoker 2: Home built; Iwill KK266-R w/ AMD 1GHz CPU, 256MBs of ram and a 4GB drive. Named Swifty 3: Home built; Gigabyte GA-71XE4 w/ 800MHz CPU, 224MBs of ram and a 2.5GB drive. Named Pokey 4: Compaq Proliant 6000 Server w/ Quad 200MHz CPUs, 128MBs of ram and a 4.3GB SCSI drive. Named Putput All run Gentoo Linux, all run folding. #1 is my desktop, 2, 3, and 4 are set up as servers. -- gentoo-user@g.o mailing list
