View Full Version : solid state problem

04-08-2003, 05:28 PM
I have created three solid state machines that use a mounted copy of the Knoppix image. All well and good and VERY quiet, but Knoppix seems to time out searching for a CD before settling on the mounted image when I call up a program and that makes the wait unacceptably long. Is there an adjustment to the path I can make and save without resorting to a remaster? All three machines are identical and they all use a 2 GB electronic hard disk

Heh. Found the solution. I had a 256 MB swap file and programs like Open Office were being written block by block to the swap and that made the delay - it wasn't the CD at all. I dumped the swapfile and upped the memory on each machine to 756 MB. Virtually instant now. Oh, man! A silent computer the size of a VCR with an OS and settings that can't corrupt. It doesn't get any better than that, does it?
