Description:
With last kernel I started getting this error on some gtk and QT apps, application are imposible to use sice they are rendered totaly wrong. This never happened to me before. Mainly I have problem with keepassx (GTK) and VirtualBox (QT).

keepassX:

QNativeImage: Unable to attach to shared memory segment.

(keepassx:18324): Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed: error 28 (No space left on device)
X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9
Major opcode: 62 (X_CopyArea)
Resource id: 0x0
[/code]

VirtualBox:
[code]
Qt WARNING: libpng warning: iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile
Qt WARNING: QNativeImage: Unable to attach to shared memory segment.

(VirtualBox:18190): Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed: error 28 (No space left on device)
Qt WARNING: X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) 9

I'm not sure if it's kernel problem or graphic driver.

Of course I have updated system kernel 4.1.2-2-ARCH. And HW is Intel Core i5-4440

Have you tried changing the acceleration method?

I switch to uxa, without change.

Having the same problem on nVidia hardware.

> uname -a
Linux desktop 4.1.2-2-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 15 08:30:32 UTC 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux

VLC and Skype give some strange UI glitches after a short time after being started.

Usually this error means your allowed SHM size is exhausted. Something on your system is allocating or leaking SHM.

I experienced this bug a few times just now (intel i7-4770), at first I rebooted which solved it.
However this time I closed Netbeans which seems to have cured it, so maybe its related to Java?

Same for me, this started to happen after the update yesterday.

I noted that
$ ipcs -m
shows an execessive amount of shared memory segments (all marked as dest=destroyed). Is there a way to find out where these come from?

Is  FS#45824  related to your problem?
Comment by Alfred Krohmer (devkid) - Wednesday, 29 July 2015, 21:54 GMT
Might be related, I didn't use any Java program today and didn't notice any misbehaviour.
Comment by Ondřej Hruška (MightyPork) - Thursday, 30 July 2015, 07:55 GMT
I think my  FS#45824  indeed duplicates this, though with different symptoms.
Can you try downgrading openjdk7 to see if the same fix works?
Comment by Martin Zajíc (zajca) - Thursday, 30 July 2015, 08:34 GMT
I'll try next week at work downgrade java. I'm using PHPStorm so java is in game.
Comment by Judju (captainju) - Thursday, 30 July 2015, 08:42 GMT
downgrading openjdk7 worked for me, no more shmget fails.
