OS: Linux - 64-bit
Effect: Out of memory error on GIFs with lots of frames.
Not sure if this is a bug on XnView MP or in my Linux distro memory management, looking for confirmation.
I just downloaded the attached file and attempting to open it with XnView MP caused my machine to hang until, after a few minutes, the XnView MP process was killed making my machine responsive again. Checking the output of dmesg afterwards, I got this:
Code: Select all
[23111.612506] Out of memory: Kill process 8243 (XnView) score 649 or sacrifice child [23111.612509] Killed process 8243 (XnView) total-vm:3850004kB, anon-rss:2816232kB, file-rss:3940kB
1. Open the attached image.
Actual behaviour (bug): On my machine, XnView MP is killed with an Out of memory error after attempting to allocate nearly 4 GB of RAM
Expected behaviour: XnView MP to handle the file without attempting to allocate more RAM than available on the system, maybe?.
