    Re: decent mem leak in nautilus > list view

    In my first comment I posted results when using Nautilus in grid view but then I looked again at the title of the thread mentioning that the problem lies in list view. Then I run helth-check again with Nautilus set to list view.

    This tool provides reports for multiple resources used by a one or more processes. Of course memory utilisation (including memory growth) is one of those things being reported./QUOTE]
    Thanks Mateusz Stachowski Useful Tool great for testing.
    If anybody is interested you can free up memory by
    Code
    Code:
    sudo sync && echo 3 | sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
    Or "sudo sysctl -w vm.drop_caches=3"

    Regards
    NOTE: this action won't make your system faster nor it will affect its stability and performance, it will just clean up memory used by the Linux Kernel on caches.

    Re: decent mem leak in nautilus > list view

    I wonder if this might be fixed now? The changelog doesn't reference a bug#:

    nautilus (1:3.10.1-0ubuntu2) trusty; urgency=medium

    * debian/patches/interactive_search.patch:
    - Fix memory leak

    I don't think so, I believe that was a mem leak caused by the return of 'type-ahead find'
    (will ck. later as currently running a general leak test on nautilus-3.10's toolbar actions

    Edit: still going strong & on the surface of little concern to gnome dev's
