Well, I think I found my vram issues. It's… i3, the, you know, minimalist window manager, which seems to render big empty pixmaps for each window: https://github.com/i3/i3/issues/3479
I can reproduce this by just opening ten empty consoles, which almost crash my whole system and the VRAM usage skyrockets. When hiding the window decorators, VRAM usage is down by a lot.
I'm so tired of this.
I actually moved away from awesomewm because I hated maintaining the lua config file, but this is just… oof.
