Default Re: Possible memory leak in nvidia drivers?

oh and i forgot something, i also added this to my "/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc"

export QT_NO_GLIB=1
nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 -a GlyphCache=1

correct pixmapcachesize i mean the following: lots of ppl suggest various settings for it, for example 2000000, i used that, but then i thought.. hmm isnt that too high for my 128 mb ram? so im using 70000 now, and this is much better.

initialpixmapplacement=2 does the following: it trys to fill your video ram before it touches your systemram, so _maybe_ if you set the pixmapcachesize higher than your videoram (in conjunction with pixmapplacement=2) , after some while it starts to fill up your systemram to, but just forgets too release it again, so that the memory usage is slowly growing....

i have no clue if this is right or whatsoever maybe im completely wrong even at the basics...
