Re: Free Memory bleeding in P 8(SOLVED)

Hi PCNetSpec, after changing out hard drives and doing a clean install of P8, I have that annoying memory loss again but this time the aforementioned code only recovers about 10 to 12% of free memory and the bleed will eat that up very quickly. This is very strange because prior to changing out the hard drive, I performed a clean install and ended up with almost no memory loss. Any ideas beside uninstalling Psensor?

Have you tried reseating your RAM modules ?

I haven't tried that, but I guess I'll try that right now and then report back.

Okay, if what you were referring to was to remove the memory cards from their slots on the mother board and reinserting them, I tried that. It didn't make any difference. I'm tempted to making a Timeshift snapshot and then doing a fresh install followed by the Timeshift snapshot restore.

Well there's obviously something weird going on because I'm not seeing a memory leak .. are you installing anything everyone else isn't ?

Might be worth a fresh install, then look for the memory leak after adding each piece of software to try figure out what introduces it.

That's what I was thinking. So I did and now it's holding real good. Another one of those, "what the heck is going on?" On the fresh install I didn't use Timeshift but rather Aptik. Thanks for the support.  :)

Not that I offered much.....

Keep a close eye on it every time you install something, or update .. if you can identify it as soon as it starts again we'll know roughly where to look in the apt logs.
