Some comments:
  • Don't use sudo with dpkg-buildpackage, it is dangerous!
  • Check before building that the patch is correctly applied
  • You have to install the libx11-xcb1 binary package in order to apply the fix, just a new libx11-6 is not enough

Hi all,
I wonder if this post is related with the post from user "Lludriga1956" in the forum "Backtraces" entitled "amule 2.2.6 crashes after hours of running".

Thanks in advance for your time.

I must say that I have seen similar behaviour with amuled on Solaris. I have traced it to failed connectivity to the aMule GUI: If the connection fails a few times somehow amuled starts to use the entire memory available to the user.

Luckily Solaris has advanced resource management features so the hogging can be limited to a few hundred megabytes. But it is very reproducable.
