Default memory leak under compiz w/ 100.14.19

hi folks,

anyone out there seeing a serious memory leak when running compiz or other compositing framework under the 100.14.19 driver and nvidia
-glx-new? This has been a serious problem for a number of users of ubuntu gutsy; see the ubuntu bug report at
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...in/+bug/151168

James at nvidia has helpfully written me to let me know that a bug report has been started at nvidia forh tis issue; I'm mostly writing to try to find out whether anyone is seeing this issue on platforms other than ubuntu. And if someone has a fix they use...

thanks,

matt

Same problem for me, running compiz with geforce go 6200 128mb.

It's totally unusable.

Like written on the ubuntu bug report, I think it's a TFP related problem.

Same here

Using a integrated Geforce Go 6150 with 128 shared memory on a HP Pavilion dv6106 Laptop.

Hopefully Nvidia fixes this soon.

Any comments from a Nvidia dev?

I can reproduce this with a Go6200 with 64MB of memory.

As the original poster mentioned, we are aware of this issue and it is being debugged. No root cause or workarounds have been found yet. Could someone affected by this bug try the following experiment and report back: Does this get any better/worse if compiz is run with/without the --loose-binding option?

what would the experiment be?
I tried maximize/restore with single "ksysguard" window and didn't see any difference - both times memory usage (I was looking at "VMSize" tab) grow by 11MB

I tried running compiz both with and without --loose-binding, and in both cases see the same problem as described above. Minimizing and maximizing a window leads to an increase in Compiz memory usage of about 9MB each time I do it (but only if I have several windows open already).

I have the same problem with Gutsy with driver 100.14.23 and GeForce Go 7400. Using loose-binding does not resolve the problem.

Hi,

Only to answer to the question about other platforms I see no apparent memory leak bug.

It would be possible that a slowness on restore, maximize, resize could be associated to this bug? This is the only difference I see with my brand new compiz-fusion compared with the an old beryl running on a Intel videocard.


My system: Open SuSE10.3 x86_64
4GB Ram
Geforce 8600M GT
compiz-0.6.2-2.1
Driver: 100.14.19


BTW: is thera a 100.14.23 driver?

Hope this to be helpful.

100.14.23 ..since I am using Gutsy I used a Debian package that pulled the driver from nvidia site: http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

Using indirect-rendering mitigates the leak problem, but I don't know if this ideal.
