Default Re: memory leak under compiz w/ 100.14.19

Hi guys. Sorry for the slow response, but I just haven't had any news in a while. I can not for the life of me reproduce this bug anymore. However, while debugging an unrelated problem the other day, I found a possible memory leak by inspection and fixed it. Hopefully that will help out those who are still experiencing this issue. And yes, I will also apply the fix to the legacy drivers that support texture from pixmap after it has been thoroughly tested.

I can't say for sure when drivers will be out with this fix, but I can say it won't be in the next beta release. Sorry Hopefully the one after that.

why not ask someone to send their hardware with that bug to you? I'm sure someone is willing to do it considering the amount of reports about this issue https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...22/+bug/151168

Hi everyone!

I decided to register here, because getting bored of memleaks, window decorations and black windows bugs (again!).

I noticed, that black windows bug is back again in driver 169.09. This bug is definitely caused by memory leak after few hours of uptime. The memory leak is caused by screensavers (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/101943, it caused not only by braid) and maybe also by compiz itself.

I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy 32 bit, GF 5700LE card with twinview dualhead 2*1280x1024.

There were enough bug reports here, I don't think mine one will tell more.
I'd better like to know, how to get debug info (and what info) when experiencing a black windows bug.

Here is a description of this problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/101943 (in comments, lower)

This is not compiz leak, this is old driver problem: it doesn't free texture memory, which it allocates in compiz address space.

If you do 20 more (and then minimize or close the windows) does the memory usage keep climbing?

Ok, did this test myself:
Process compiz VmSize / VmRss
36 / 29

and no matter how many times I minimize / maximize... it just stays as it is.
NOTE: I use compiz from git (if you use opensuse you can get git packages from cyberorg for testing).
Driver 169.12, using loose binding and indirect rendering (without performance is not good).

no wonder, since you use indirect rendering

@ctheo: are there any advantages when not using indirect rendering?
