Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

Ah now, I have never tested this (or even thought about that). I imagine flopswap now can't understand why your blocks value is lower than the saved value. I doubt it matters about the size change.

Re: What will happen after 2036?

If it gets to that point in the future then we would have to start looking at 64 bit time_t solutions.
Otherwise it's far enough ahead not to worry about IMO.

Re: Salvaging Parts from N900

N900 survived a trip in a washing machine!
Who'd have thought it.
Thanks for getting back to us.

Re: problem with used N900 phone wlan

Sometimes the contacts between the aerials and the motherboard need adjusting/cleaning; if you haven't tried that already.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

Also bear in mind FreEmantle may well be thumb compiled too. I feel we will still need swap, however, I think swapiness setting should be completely different.

I have had issues with album art after resetting the tracker, I assumed it was thumbnailerd/trackerd playing up but maybe it's related to the last OMP update?

Re: [ANNOUNCE] rtmpdump & get_iplayer

My impression from github was a pid linker from the iplayer website was a temporary workaround.
PID option still works, however, this is a PITA if you want a series.

I don't see why a API key...

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

I would suggest having a play with your swapiness settings instead of making your swap spaces smaller.

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

Re: [Announce][Fremantle] FlopSwap - Swap GUI Management

The point I was making is it would be down to a lot of variables. If the system has most of it's RAM used and a large swap space it could be moving large amounts of swap as per my example.
It would...
