Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdemultimedia

KMix uses too much memory on Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64. Over the course of hours or days, KMix will gradually use up more and more memory, quickly getting to hundreds of megabytes. I killed it once at over a gigabyte.

Same here for x86 , after fresh reboot , more than 700 Mo of ram...

Killing Kmix , deleted ~/.kde/share/config/kmix* & ~/.kde/share/apps/kmix/ and relaunched Kmix to have a decent ram usage.

But it will come back if kmix is not corrected

I haven't had this problem in a couple of weeks. Not sure what fixed it, but it seems fine now.
