[mythtv-users] X Bad_alloc Error

I've had similar problems.

I'm curious if this is HD?  Also-  do you have any entries in your X log at
the same time?

(I'm also just going to say I had similar 'file handle' problems because the
video card and Ethernet port were sharing the same IRQ, while this is still
the case, that problem seems to have gone away with the BIOS set to 'assign
IRQ to video'.)

I cannot speak about the exact cause of your error but it sounds like a lack
of resources. Since you are running a svn version its anyones guess if you
have a problem or its the current version in svn. Probably the best thing to
do would be to fall back to the release version until you get it working and
then try upgrading. Maybe by then, the problem will be gone from svn. :)
