Memory is allocated on all GPUs

When an application is started, the memory is allocated on all GPUs. This affects both the X11 session and Cuda applications. I am not sure by which setting this is caused. It also does not occur in the multi-user target, so I suspect it has to do with the X11 session.

2x NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000
Fedora 33 (5.12.12-200.fc33.x86_64)
CUDA Version: 11.3
Driver Version: 465.19.01

You have basemosaic enabled so this is expected.

this is the solution, I added:

Option         "BaseMosaic"   "FALSE"

to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
