At some point, I installed cksfv for some reason. The speed difference is incredible! cksfv beats cfv hands down (at least for SFVing). [this testing was done 2+ years ago]
Still, .torrent hashing is a pretty killer feature that I didn’t know about – maybe it’s newer than my experience]]>
Using the excuse “memory is cheap” is just a crap get out for people who don’t have the wherewithal to select the appropriate tool for the job.]]>
2GB ram costs 50 EUR, do you think really the time you’ll waste without this tool will cost less ?]]>
I doubt it’s anything like a 32/64-bit issue. I run 64-bit multilib and my machines are kept very clean in terms of maintenance (I always run both depclean and revdep-rebuild as part of my world updates, and my world file is kept perfect in terms of top-level contents. I don’t run any strange CFLAGS / LDFLAGS). KDE 3.5 works perfectly without any crashes.
Yes, KDE 3.5.10 currently exists and is supported, but for how much longer? It will one day (possibly fairly soon) become unsupported, and when that happens I want a usable replacement that is equivalent in terms of functionality.
Why do I use KDE? I’ve tried other desktop environments and just never got along with any of them. KDE 3.5 is perfect for my needs. I want KDE 4 to be the same when KDE 3 becomes unsupported.
Beyond the fact that this is my blog and part of its purpose is to be a place for me to rant, I have to disagree with about rants not helping to improve products. I’m voicing what I think is wrong with the products and what I want changed. If no one did this, the developers would continue to think that all is right with the world. If lots of people do this, and the developers have half a brain, they’ll listen and change things.
While I would love to contribute changes to improve these projects, I simply don’t have the time. The next best thing I can do, in my view, is voice my opinions and hope that someone listens.]]>
There is still KDE 3.5.10. I’m using it. A desktop enviroment has a lot of lines of code, and it’s not that easy to please everybody wish. Why do you use a peace of software that disturb You so much? I don’t get it. That’s why I dont use Gnome. I don’t like it. I don’t use it. Point. Amarok 2. You don’t like it, change it for Amarok 1.whatever. Problem solved. With too many rants You don’t aqctually help the devs to improve a new product. The revolutionary things always has a lot of discussion around. Still, try to work with Vista interface, which needs triple graphic card to produce 3 sad efects…….
- Run panel widget
plasma-runner doesn’t appear when I go through the download plasmoids dialogs. I really can’t be bothered to trawl through 1000s of “this is my first attempt at programming” entries to get functionality that is standard in KDE3.
- Memory/CPU panel widget
It’s not in as standard and doesn’t appear in the download plasma widgets dialog. Again, I can’t be bothered to trawl through 1000s of “this is my first attempt at programming” entries to get functionality that is standard in KDE3.
I use Gentoo (my laptop runs CFLAGS=”-O2 -march=native”, 64-bit userland, tuxonice-2.6.28, Athlon64 3200+). I’ve tested with the same or less amount of applications and Konqueror tabs open in KDE4.2 as KDE3.5. I have cache/buffer dropping enabled on hibernate for tuxonice.]]>
with regard to memory usage and crashes, which distro do you use? My experience says other different story.]]>
