high resource demand fron mldonkey

2007-07-23 Thread Tsu-Fan Cheng
Hi, I run mldonkey (mlnet+gui) on freebsd 6.2 and found it takes up a lot of CPU resources. Is this a common thing or just me. Also, is there something else, e.g. amule, xmule that runs a little lighters on the system?? thank you!! TFC ___

Re: high resource demand fron mldonkey

i see. After running just the mlnet_real itself, the app doesnt consume so much power anymore. So the gui is the real problem here, huh?? any attempt to improve this?? ciao, TFC On 7/23/07, Danny Woods [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: On Mon, Jul 23, 2007 at 04:44:17PM -0400, Tsu-Fan Cheng wrote
