Out of memory

I have 2 GB memory in my X1000, but whenever the system reaches 400-something free, I get an out of memory alert, and cannot open any more windows. Why is that ?

Re: New X1000 and Linux install problems

Mostly means, that det '.' key on the numerical keyboard hangs. But anyway, who uses that part of the keyboard nowadays, except if you work in a bank? ;) Now, the drunken bastard has the model number A1243 and the EMC no. 2171. It is apparently made in 2007 (judging from the very very small text at ...

@nbache

Are you implying, that I misspell a lot? Hrmf! ;)

Dried the drunken bastard off on the radiator, and now it seems to work again. Well, at least mostly...

Re: New X1000 and Linux install problems

Accidentally killed my mac keyboard yesterday with a mix of clumsiness, tipsy and a perfectly good glass of scoth... Wonder if my insurance covers "easy living"... :-/

Re: New X1000 and Linux install problems

Apparently I am not able to have the kernel recognize my SATA drives unless I specify "-nousb" on the CFE command line. Is there an explanation for this?

Also for some reason I seem to not be able to use my standard wired mac keybioard in linux. It works perfectly well with AmigaOS.

Re: New X1000 and Linux install problems

Ok, I tried the MintPPC netinstall iso, and was able to run the installer. But I have the same problem as with Squeeze, that it complains. that it cannot find the root device. I noticed in another thread, that people mentioned a problem when using a partition number > 5 for the root. Is there a solu...

Re: Moving symbolic links on SFS partition??

@xenic

Hmm, I can see that. But how do you then explain the example I gave? And why is it impossible to move a link in any other way than moving its parent directory? Such behavior I can only interpret as "lack of functionality", because nothing is gained by removing this feature. Or is it?

Re: Moving symbolic links on SFS partition??

@Niels Look at the last example I gave (no. 10) with "ln -s"). Filer shows the linked file to be "RAM:lib///lib/test.txt", which would be very illogical, if Filer was constructing the path itself. This, and also the fact, that it shows this information for a link that points nowhere, indicates, that...

Re: Moving symbolic links on SFS partition??

@xenic I am positive. Try using "Filer" to view your files. In the file comments it will show the complete path to "myfile". Another irritating problem is caused by the same non-relative paradigm: 1) cd ram: 2) mkdir lib 3) echo >lib/test.txt "hello" 4) mkdir src 5) cd src 6) mkdir lib 7) cd lib 8) ...

Re: Moving symbolic links on SFS partition??

@tonyw As colin states, something has indeed changed, namely the way the link makes its reference: On FFS: possible relative path On SFS: always absolute path The reason this is problematic is, that the SFS behavior doesn't mimic the behavior of other operating systems. Qmake works with the same cod...
