I see some crazy memory leaking going on with Cinnamon 3.8.9. I tried stripping out applets, it made no difference. It gets pretty sluggish above 5 gig.

Hello, can you please post the result of the following terminal command, and enclose it in code tags? That's the button marked </>.
This is needed for pretty much any question about your system, so it's a good habit to post it straight away.

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
If you're having trouble doing this, let me know and I'll explain more

Hi, Moem,

I have a similar problem in Cinnamon 4.0.9 described in viewtopic.php?f=208&t=287614. My inxi output is there as an attachment. I didn't see your post on this topic until today. I'll try to get updates emailed to me for this thread, too.

What app are you using to monitor the memory use of Cinnamon?
