Installed it today and testing. Probably it will be hard to see. I've got everything set to 0 i transitioncontrol so everything is fast for now

Thanks, all

Installed using dpkg -i and this seems to make a really nice difference.

Before I installed it, I began copying a large file to the N900 via wifi, which normally renders the phone basically unusable until it's done (or incredibly unpleasant to use at least).. I noticed this script kick in immediately and the device was almost as snappy as it would be without the file copying. Now that the file-copy is complete, it's quick as hell

Nice job!

Definite improvement and no adverse effects noticed so far!

You have my admiration and thanks!

I can confirm this. I experienced the same issue, but now I'm running this settings for 2 days (manually entered in xterminal) and the phone is very responsive. Guys this is really awesome job!

Great to see hacks and tweaks moving from being command line guru required to being nicely packaged up and reproducible by yourself and others!

However, because this is a package which will not appear to do anything, please do the following:

In the top post for this thread, indicate CLEARLY the actions and changes it makes
files modified and overwritten etc - do not send people to another thread and say "it similar to that over there"

In the package, add a clear indication of its actions in the README and potentially a man page and/or a backlink back to here so others can discover its actions easily.

Thanks for taking that small step beyond hackerdom and making it graspable by normal folks
