Description John Herdy 2004-08-18 06:45:53 UTC
kde is compiled with --enable-fast-malloc. You can use the fast malloc routine instead of the libc routine if enviroment-variable KDE_MALLOC is set to 1. Hereby I would like to make a request to add  KDE_MALLOC="1" to /etc/env.d/99kde-env if kde is compiled with --enable-fast-malloc (the default).

Also for people who don't read the documentation very carefully it might be an idea to add a commented out line KDE_IS_PRELINKED=true to /etc/env.d/99kde-env. Maybe more possible kde environment variables can be added to /etc/env.d/99kde-env (commented out).

For more kde environment variables see

probably will put this into kde-base/kde-env as a new version.
Comment 2 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-09-02 14:18:31 UTC
now in kde-env-3

thanks for the report.
Comment 3 Gregorio Guidi (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-02 01:22:01 UTC
Putting here just for reference:
probably the environment variable is not needed, and the use of
fast malloc is discouraged in certain cases.
