Re: [gtk-list] drawing area size


I think it is simply too much memory you are asking for.

I am not sure what amount of data you need per pixel, I guess it is 4
Bytes at least. Then you have 5000*5000*4Bytes=100MB.

This would cause many systems to drop the application like a red glowing
piece of lava.
