Linux drivers > 180.29 and memory allocator
We just notice that every driver > 180.29 will crash any opengl application when using hoard
( http://www.hoard.org/ ).
Hoard is a memory allocator that replace the standard glibc memory allocator and offer
better performance in multithreaded application. Hoard uses the LD_PRELOAD mechanism.

I read in another thread that driver appears to haev the same behaviour with tcmalloc
( thread Nvidia OpenGL borked since 180.22 ).

As anyone experience this behaviour with hoard ? Is there any workaround ?

Best regards,

Re: Linux drivers > 180.29 and memory allocator
Latests beta driver 185.18.10 fix trouble with alternate memory allocator ( hoard or nedmalloc).

There is still a problem, executable linked with -pie ( position independent executable ) crash even
with this new driver.

Any suggestions ?
