> I am using X.org on a s3 Prosavage video adapter, using video driver savage. I have been having significant problems with the vast amounts of memory that are being consumed, living very little space left for other applications. For instance, here is the readout from top that shows what i am talking about:
> 1 96 0 302M 20304K select 24.0H 3.61% Xorg
> This is really a huge problem has a have a limited amount of memory and disk space and because of this massive amount of memory consumed, other applications are running out of memory and crashing.
> I know X.org should probably not be using this much memory and there is a bug somewhere in the software that is doing this. If you need any logs or anything please ask.
