Description Antoine Saroufim 2017-03-14 12:16:44 UTC
After reverting packagekit to the upstream configs, I've noticed that it always runs in the background as a root process and always uses 300 MiB of memory. Is this the intended behavior? If so, packagekit does use quite a lot of memory for something that isn't always actively working. 

OS: OpenSUSE Tumbleweed
Kernel: 4.10

We moved the upstream bugtracker to GitHub a long time ago. If this issue still affects you please re-create the issue here: https://github.com/hughsie/PackageKit/issues
Sorry for the impersonal message, and fingers crossed your issue no longer happens. Thanks.
