Regarding Auto-Update: Not sure about others, but on my Linux system, I have never had a problem with the freenet auto update in well over a year.
> - Freenet 0.7.5 Build #1237 build01237 > - Freenet-ext Build #26 r23771 > > Lot's of people are saying they got slow downloads. I have never bitched > about it but I can offer you some info. > I use WinXpPro with 1GB allocated to freenet and big rambuckets. > The problem isn't just with this release but older ones as well. > Downloads with high availability come as fast as ever. > > But these downloads I'm trying aren't all completely available and the ones > that are, are almost extinct on datablocks from freenet. > > What I think happens with global queue vs non-global downloads: > Global: FN tries one download for a while, then tries a bit from another > one and so on. Result: Slow download > NonGlobal: FN tries several files at the same time, when blocks are found > it continues to leech them, the concurrent downloads that cant find > blocks, only slow it down a bit. > > I present you with my graph. I'm downloading music from freenet. > > Look at my bandwidth meter on the top. > Starting from the left, you can see 8 hours of downloading these tunes with > global queue. > On the right, you can see 2 hours of when I switched on Frost's Non-Global > downloading. > If I were to put that in numbers of downloaded bytes, non-global downloads > 3 times as much in the same time, with the same downloads. > I have been testing this for months, but finally decided to nag about it. > > I recommend global queue that leeches the files it finds blocks for, or > download several threads to several files at once. > ====== > Also, the automatic update still doesn't work, just remove it. > When it tries to update, freenet restarts 4-7 times without updating. > Then Freenet stops and won't restart anymore. At that point, the update has > been completed, but node is left dead or unstarted. > > Update script works as brilliant as ever, but it doesnt make use of update > files downloaded from freenet, I'm fine with that. > I would like a notification of a new version so I can manually run the > update script. > Bye. > _______________________________________________ Support mailing list Support@freenetproject.org http://news.gmane.org/gmane.network.freenet.support Unsubscribe at http://emu.freenetproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/support Or mailto:support-requ...@freenetproject.org?subject=unsubscribe
