> Hi folks,
> I have two installs of Digikam, one on a desktop machine that works
> flawlessly and a second install on a laptop that grinds to a halt when I
> tag faces.
> It appears that I run out of both physical memory (8G) and swap (8G) on
> my laptop but not on the desktop machine (16G RAM and 34G swap).
> Digikam seems to correctly tag the photos (as evident next time I start
> Digikam), and gives the status of writing the metadata, but is left
> showing the "Applying processes" status... but doesn't proceed beyond
> that point.  The physical memory and swap file then get used up and
> eventually Digikam is killed by the system.
> I don't know if this is related to my digikam4.db being 118M, or if this
> is some other issue that I can fix on my end.  I did end up compiling
> the most recent version of sqlite that I could find (3.8.5) in hopes
> that I could head off the issue there.
> Any recommendations as to how to proceed?
