Try to clear your kernel cache (and compile for about 5mins), it should be a directory like: C:\Users<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp\luxcorerender.org
I've a lot of instabillity with 2.5. I'm on CUDA optix . viewport crash a lot when switching from render preview to solid or wireframe. now i've a scen crashing automatically on GPU while rendering fine on CPU. I had cleared up the kernel cahe and redo the compiling phase but still the same issue.

here is the file :

Does it happen only the first time after you have delete the cached kernels (or installed a new version) ? I have the feeling it is related to long compilation time and BlendLuxCore applying the denoiser (before compilation time is over).

No it happen as soon as i started to use 2.5 on multiple scene but mostly in viewport. So i tried your tip about cache suppression.this time this file wann't work on GPu. Strangelly for this scene it is almost the first time i added glossy coating on multiple shader like carpaint.
Want to try to check that.

I encountered dozens of crashes so far with v2.5 when ending a viewport render, both on Linux and Windows. I suspect they are related to the OptiX denoiser, without it there are almost no crashes, but I can't reproduce them reliably.

I can 100% reproduce the problem in any scene by:

1) enable view port rendering
2) resize the view port
3) disable view port rendering
4) crash

@B.Y.O.B, Blender/BlendLuxCore is doing something very strange:

- when I resize the view port, the current LuxCore RenderSession is stopped but not deleted.
- a new session is created after the view port resize and the new rendering is started;
- when you switch back to wire frame view port rendering, all pending RenderSession(s) will be deleted (and a crash will occur).

In theory this may even work but: every pending RenderSession will keep a full copy of the scene in ram. You can just keep resizing the view port and the memory usage will increase and increase :!:

The crash doesn't happen if you disable Optix RTX and denoiser (i.e. in intersection and film devices) but the huge waste of memory is still there.

This looks like a Optix bug caused by the huge amount of contexts allocated and due to the RenderSession-not-delete problem.

I'll need to investigate this resize behaviour.
However, I rarely resize the viewport, so I'm fairly sure that the crashes I encountered so far were not related to resizing. Still, the same underlying problem with OptiX context might be at work there.
