It's because it's in off-topic section.

In my experience, dwb doesn't release memory after I close the websites that used it, it waits for the browser restart. Since dwb is very fast and light, restarting it once in a while isn't a terrible thing and takes just a few seconds.

Well, I'm not complaining, I got a new laptop (well, rather new) and it can bear the memory leakage; Still, this is something one might want to fix sometime in the future.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Just wanted to let you know that I have been experiencing the browser crashes pretty consistently with dwb-hg. 

These are back, though not as frequent:

** (dwb:12620): CRITICAL **: dwb_update_status_text: assertion `gl == dwb.state.fview' failed

Also, I figure I might as well just throw the ouput of the last crash in here as well.

Of course, let me know if there is more information I might be able to collect for you.  I love this browser and am happy to be a test subject to help you make it better.  Unforuntaely, that is the extent to which I am able to help.


BTW, @Lord Bo, You linked to the other post, and I thought this issue might have been discussed in that thread. The only thing there was you saying the exact same thing. That was really of no help.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

".config/dwb/default/session" sometimes gets garbage written to it. The sessions works still, it's just that there are additional garbage sessions written to it.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

With garbage I mean a session I haven't added, named something like "?+"

Here is the relevant line in the session file:

g:?+^A

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@WonderWoofy: Sorry, but what I posted was completely unrelated to the issue. And also your backtrace looks a bit strange. Maybe something with the backtrace script is not correct? I will have a look at it. However: This assertion failure seems to stem from dwb.c:599 g_return_if_fail(gl == dwb.state.fview); .

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Lord Bo, are you looking at my backtrace from post #1274, or what I posted a couple posts up?  Because a couple posts up is just what was dumped into my terminal when the last crash occured.  I had been starting dwb from the terminal so that I might be able to get some useful information when it crashes.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I get similar crashes like reported in post #1226, they seem to happen preferably when either an image in a tab is still loading, it's a very big image or it's a very big gif. Even if I open another adress in the tab the image was in, closing it causes dwb to crash. I tried switching between dwb, dwb-hg, dwb-gtk3 and dwb-gtk3-hg, but this doesn't really help and seems to affect the gtk3 versions more. If there is anything I can do for debugging, tell me, because X just outputs generic messages like in post #1226.

edit: Output from backtrace.sh

Ok, sorry again, I was a bit confused since it didn't look like what I had expected. I'm now trying to use the mercurial version to, hopefully the browser will crash, too.

So it would be convenient to invoke dwb with gdb dwb and then wait until it crashes to invoke 'backtrace' from inside gdb? Just to sum it up.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Ohhh... Your script is supposed to do that, but it invokes make debug and doing that fails! I just compiled dwb with a simple make and gdb does not complain... .
No, it is allright. Just didn't notice that it invoked make debug from within the src directory.

Edit: There is something wrong with the Makefile. It is not complete. There is no debug version, but the normal version is compiled with the -g flag, whilst -O2 optimization is given. That is a bit strange... I think you should do something about that. That then seems not to lead to anything, too.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Oh, okay, I get it. Sorry portix.  I will try to do better now.  Gotta reboot anyway after a kenel update from graysky.  I will start it t via your script and let it run and try and get some data for you.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Ok portix, I got one for you. It is easily to reproduce (at least for me): Open dwb:keys and press Return. The browser will crash. I appended the log. However, I think this has rather low priority, if it is not related to the other crashes. gdb.log

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Okay, I think I did better this time.  I ran the script and used the browser it produced until it crashed.  Here is the gdb.log.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@WonderWoofy: Thanks, but that webkit bug.

@Lord Bo: That's not a bug, all gtk-applications don't paste on shift-insert. In dwb-hg i tried to implement shift insert but it doesn't always work because gtk sometimes returns the clipboard even if primary selection is requested.

I'm not sure but it seems to be webkit related, dwb calls gtk_widget_destroy but a the webview must be destroyed when the tab is closed. Do you have accelerated-compositing enabled? enable-accelerated-compositing is buggy in webkitgtk and it causes dwb and X to crash sometimes.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Ok, I'm trying to write some scripts, which shall be used with dwb. Doing that I got a little problem: I'd like to bind a keycombination to some function. This function has one or more parameters. Now the bind shall take that into account. Look at the following example:

#!javascript

function testprom(val) 
{
  var ret = io.prompt("testprom");
  if( ret != null )
  {
    io.error(val);
  }
}

bind("ex", testprom("No error occured!") );

Ok what I'd like to happen is, that if the user presses an 'e' followed by an 'x' and does not cancel at the prompt, the error message "No error occurred" appears. So how can I pass parameters together with the callback function to bind() ?

You have different possibilities, you can use a closure

bind("ex", function() { testprom("No error occured!"); });

or the native bind method that all functions have

bind("ex", testprom.bind(this, "No error occured!"));

or the curry method that dwb implements for every function

bind("ex", testprom.curry("No error occured");

The mistake in your code is, bind expects a function but if you just write testprom("No error occured"), testprom is executed immediately and the argument of bind is the return value of testprom which will be undefined in your example.

Edit: For function.curry you need dwb-hg.

Edit2: After writing this post i came to the conclusion that i should remove curry since bind does the same, so you should either use bind or the anonymous function.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@portix: I don't have it enabled, only a compositing manager. After I deactivated that, the resulting backtrace looks slightly different. Damn it.
