Pamac allocates 12GB of memory every time I install/remove/update a package
Pamac 10.4.0-2 - libpamac 11.3.0-1
Variant in use
What's not working
Every time I install, remove or update a package, I guess in the "refreshing things" phase, pamac spawns around 22
pamac processes (besides
pamac-daemon which were already there), each one of them using at peak around 500/600MB of memory, for a total CPU usage of 100%, which of course completely locks up my computer for 2-3 minutes after lots and lots of swapping.
I have no idea what is causing this, which started happening something like 3 weeks ago I think, but it's quite insane
Please tell me how I can better understand what pamac is doing and help you fix this because, as you might guess, it's totally unusable in my system right now.
I only tried deleting
~/.config/pamac to try starting fresh again, but without any success.
