MintUpdate Mem Usage Bug - perhaps fix before mint5?

Postby ranyardm » Thu May 08, 2008 5:56 am


I'm on a fairly regular basis getting mintupdate falling into a VERY high mem usage pattern. It really kills the machine, I have to switch to a text terminal and killall MintUpdate - the swapping just makes the machine unusable. I have a gut instinct that it's some kind of error that it's not expecting because mintUpdate gets launched whilst the wireless is still getting a connection.

If it doesn't happen on login, it doesn't happen at all, but it is a problem to debug, as I can't even use the machine to right-click mintUpdate and exit, let alone try and determine the cause.

Code: Select all

martyn@martyn-laptop:~$ dpkg -l mintupdate
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-f/Unpacked/Failed-cfg/Half-inst/t-aWait/T-pend

I think this is solved in the newest version of mintUpdate, or is it mentMenu I am thinking about..??
