Description of problem:
PAN use 45% of the memory after one or two days of usage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open PAN with some alt.binaries.* groups like .boneless
2. Use it normaly (post,download, etc.) during one or two days
3. Open top in a terminal and sort process by % of memory usage
PAN use 45% of memory ...
PAN is leaking heavily memory ...
No memory leak.
The memory leak should have been plugged upstream, i've not yet verify it nor valgrind pan yet ...
The problem is known upstream and was fixed with release 0.131 (440194 fix 0.127
memory leak (Charles)). Please see
As soon as F-7 is released and non-blocker updates are possible I will provide
an updated pan package. Not sooner to not break the upgrade path.
Please provide an update, it's really a show stopper for pan user, F7 is out and
it's the same pan version, though leaking heavily memory ... Could you please
push an upgrade for F7 and FC6 extras ?
(i'm running CVS version right now, but i'm thinking about beginners on fedora)
I can assure you that the update packages for F-7 and FC6 are on their way.
Please have a bit of patience. In the whole process I have to take care for a
sane upgrade path. So first F-7 updates-testing has to be passed and then, after
the stable update, the FC-6 update will appear soon after.
pan-0.131-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
So far this version do not leak heavily memory ... stable push time ? ;-)
pan-0.131-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
