thanks mike!

u've forgotten, I use your Puppy only in Ram, I only need to free up some space, in this case this about 100 Mb used by the built-in SM, in this session.

Anybody know what's this log file for that sometimes accumulates in /tmp folder to over 300 mb in a matter of a few hours? Practically eating up the free space in RAM. There's any way to prevent this in Slacko 5.7.2.CE?

As far as I know, every file your system accesses will be noted in the /tmp folder. So, yes, if you're doing a lot many entries will be written in a short amount of time.

I don't know how to turn that off, or even if doing so would be advisable. What I did was move the /tmp folder to /mnt/home/SOMEWHERE and symlink it back. That freed up RAM. But Puppies are designed to clear /tmp on shutdown/reboot*. Moving it to /mnt/home/SOMEWHERE means that the entries written to that folder are never automatically deleted. You have to remember to do so manually.

*Having moved it, I can't test whether merely restarting-x would also clear it.

mike,

For me restarting-x usually clears up /tmp files. That's how I solve it so far. I'll try this /home/SOMEWHERE solution too. Practically this log ate all of my free Ram by itself in a matter of a few hours.

Thanks

This command may free up memory:
sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

G'day Mike, I've tried installing this on a Toshiba NB200 NetBook N280 intel Atom CPU, Single Core 1.66 GHz, Maximum 2 GB RAMemory. Frugal install on an eXt4 FS.

Trouble iz it's Not finding ( & consequently Not loading ) the ce_slacko Directory or ceslackosave.4fs File inside, on the Next ReBoot & in Fact asks me 2 Create a New ceslackosave.4fs on Every ShutDown or ReBoot. Altho I Really want 2 Save 2 a Directory rather than a File.

Please Help me Solve this Frustrating issue...

Thanx

WinkK

"Toshiba... Atom,,, eXt4 FS". Emphasis supplied.

If you provide the menu.lst I'll take a look. But:

(1) I've had problems with Toshiba and avoid them, so can't be of much help.
(2) Many 'older' Puppies have problems with file-systems formatted as Linux Ext4. My hard-drives are Linux Ext3. I choose Linux Ext3 as the format for SaveFiles. Although Slacko 5.7.2.CE is 'updated', it still is an old Puppy. Don't know whether it can properly handle Linux Ext4. Don't have any way to test.
(3) I don't recommend this Puppy. I built and published it at a time I thought there was a need for an updated Puppy for 'old computers'. Shortly thereafter, radky published dpup-stretch, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=974590#974590. Later, jrb published precise-lite, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1024458#1024458. And both mistfire and 8Geee have continued their excellent work on Slacko based Puppies, refining and updating them: X-Slacko Slim 4.4r49, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=909819#909819; AtomicPup-XX66, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1054206#1054206. Note the latter is specifically built with Atom CPU's as a target.

All of these are much more versatile operating systems that work well on 'old computers'.

Where else other than in /tmp are .log files able to accumulate in CE Slacko Puppy 5.7.2?
