darktable becomes unresponsive after short time, using 16 G RAM
I was in the middle of submitting this and I think I just solved it - I ran
darktable -d all and noticed a log entry about a connected device (HTC M8 from ~2014). Once I unplugged it the problem resolved immediately.
Leaving it here as FYI - can be closed.
Shortly after loading darktable, it becomes extremely slow responding to input (unusable) and top showing 15 G or more, even with no images loaded.
I have been building dartable from git for about 6 months and this happened very recently (in the last week). I installed the rpm and the same behavior shows up.
fedora 29 with all updates.
pms@spidey ~$ /opt/darktable/bin/darktable --version
this is darktable 2.7.0+930~g85ccaaa16
