    Default Ubuntu 10.04 Is Hit By Major X.Org Memory Leak

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 10.04 Is Hit By Major X.Org Memory Leak

    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is set to be released next Thursday and a release candidate is poised to be released tomorrow, but there's some last minute problems within the Lucid Lynx camp. There's a last-minute X.Org Server update that's being looked at as a result of a "major memory leak" that has been found over the past week...

    I have a feeling that Ubuntu 10.04 is like a toy made of pieces of Lego.

    It's an LTS release, so they're stuck between not wanting to ship with old software versions that they'll have to support for years, and not wanting to ship new versions with major bugs that will affect users today.

    Yea, but I'm curious to see how stable it is now that it comes out, especially on the server side.

    Not surprised. Franken-Xserver -- freak. With all the backporting, it's surprising that it'll even boot up.

    With RHEL6 Beta being out (and RH employing developers rather than headless chickens), I really can't see too many people wasting their time on this hopeless mess.

    Then why do you care about a GLX issue?

    Yeah, just like every other Linux distro.

    Default Redemption Is At Hand

    From the ubuntu-dev mailing list -

    "Thanks to the tireless investigations of Robert Hooker and Tormod Volden ..."

    Well done guys. You may well have averted a disaster.

    These GLX 1.4 changes were from 1.8.0. Why backport them in the first place to a LTS?
