Description Neal Nuckolls 2004-07-28 18:00:29 EDT
Description of problem:
Start "wish" on RedHat 7.3 (tk8.3.3) and "ps -gaxl" shows
it's using around 2Mbytes resident.  ok.
Start "wish" on RedHat 9.0 (tk8.3.5) and "ps -gaxl" shows
it's using around 20Mbytes .

I used tkdiff a lot and when I ran it after installing
the tcl/tk in RedHat-9.0 it would use up 60-70 Mbytes (!)
of RSS, swapping everything else out, when viewing a large
source file.  Downgrading my tcl/tk to 8.3.3 and everything
is fine again.  I could not find an 8.4.x tcl/tcl RPM handy
so have not tested it.

This sounds a bit like bug 100793, but the ucs4 patch for tcltk
is disabled in the RHEL3 update... so it can't be that.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-08-06 04:15:12 EDT
What exact tcltk package version and release are you using?
Comment 3 Neal Nuckolls 2004-08-12 20:39:25 EDT
tcl-8.3.5-88.i386.rpm and tk-8.3.5-88.i386.rpm ,
the ones that came in RedHat 9.0 .
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2004-08-13 08:31:08 EDT
Then you, I'm sorry, but you shouldn't file against RHEL3 U3-beta. ;-)

RHL 9.0 is no longer supported.  If you're using RHEL please upgrade
to the tcltk packages there, otherwise I suggest upgrading to Rawhide.
Fedora Legacy may also be able to help support 9.0 still.

If you can't upgrade, try rebuilding the RHEL3 tcltk package on
9.0 and if you still have problems please reopen this bug.
