NVidia driver causing memory leaks on Linux ?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Using the 1.0-3123 and 1.0-4191 for IA32,
I have reproductible crashes that involve the libGL.so.

running several apps with the valgrind debugger shows that it leaves unfreed pointers in memory.

I attached a trace.

Comments ?

Are you running wine? Can you reproduce leaks while not running wine?

According to valgrind's homepage, it won't work when the NVIDIA kernel module is loaded. I downloaded the latest CVS to try, and confirmed that I couldn't trace any GL programs.

I get some crashes with wine, thats a point.

These are not the only ones :
Using mplayer (www.mplayerhq.hu) I get the same crashes.

I tried this : using XFree86 nv driver with mplayer, I get an entire blue image, but no segfaults.

Last point : I have some system freeze if X is active, running these two apps or not.
