Default Re: Intermittent "BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)" when maximizing vi

AaronP, thanks for your prompt reply. I have realized that closing a few windows helps (especially firefox). But occasionally, even with the video window alone, I receive the error (this would be launching mplayer from a terminal window without any other windows opened).

Now, is this a driver issue? Why should this happen anyway since my card has turbocache enabled and **should** (I could be wrong here) appropriate the necessary resources from main memory to accommodate any additional needs. Or, is my card just limited? My friends machine, with integrated video (Intel) seems not to have this issue. Please comment. Thanks
