Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189486
PyGTK 2.8.4 contains a memory leak
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:50:16 EDT
FC5 currently includes pygtk2-2.8.4-1.1, and using it with flumotion and (at
least) DV capture exposes a nasty memory leak which has been fixed in 2.8.6.
Please see the two last announcements for 2.8.5 and 2.8.6 :
Those are bugfix only releases.
Oh, for extra karma points, the pygtk2 spec file could be renamed from
pygtk.spec to pygtk2.spec :-)
Updated in rawhide and pushing to FC5 testing soon. Can you check it out and if
you give the thumbs up I will release it. As of the spec file name change that
would mean we lose CVS history on the file and actually most of our specs follow
the format of being named after the tarball which in this case is pygtk.
pygtk2-2.8.6-0.fc5.1 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Thanks a lot!
Closing as ERRATA since the released update fixed the problem.
