It's the way many "modern websites" are built: Take as many resources as possible!Maikel wrote: ↑Tue Oct 09, 2018 5:56 pmHi. I am very dissapointed because my use of the Raspberry is as a normal PC, for surfing, facebook and music. And all that was a very good experience with the Raspbian Jesse, but I am having a lot of problems with the Strecht version when its time to web surf.
I tried to change the CHROMIUM for the VIVALDI browser, but when I have aa lot of pages open at the same time I have to unplug the Raspberry. Maybe you can say I am expecting too much effort from the raspberry, but with jesse I had no problem.
Now, after two days of several times the same freeze, I am going to start to not open more than 5-6 web at the same time and I will tell to you the results, but there is someone who is experiencing the sme problems than me?
I always set mine to 192MB , the minimum required by Kodi. (or is it the max actually used by Kodi...)Imperf3kt wrote: I always increase the GPU memory to 224MB out of necessity for other uses, but like this the browser works great.
if you're going to try what I mentioned, I suggest doing a native USB boot on a good USB3.0 rated USB pendrive or better yet a USB HDD.Maikel wrote: I am going to try what you say, and hope it is going to help.
Code: Select all
sudo sed -i 's/^CONF_SWAPSIZE=[0-9]*$/CONF_SWAPSIZE=1024/' /etc/dphys-swapfile sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile stop sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile start
This is the only command that I use whenever I have a "need for speed"....Maikel wrote:Is there a faster way to "reset" the swap memory....
Code: Select all
~ $ /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile restart
before running the command, did you run htop on a separate terminal window? you will see the change there before and after running the command.Yotaphoner wrote: the command "sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile restart" does nothing.
Sorry I don't understand that. How is shared the USB bus with ethernet? Anyways I am not using ethernet and I am always using WIFI, but I would love to understand it.
I use an external 1 TB HDD sea gate expansion drive. This works fine with my Raspberry Pi 3b+ PINN setup. My SD card holds boot file systems and HDD has OSes. A SSD should work fine since SSD take less power draw then HDD. Some SATA cables do not work though. Try and find a external SSD with USB capabilities.Yotaphoner wrote: ↑Mon Oct 15, 2018 6:35 pmOk Ghans, now I get it.
About if it's worth or not to buy a SSD, I checked the web about that, and found many people sayint it really worth, so I search for a benchmark and found this one: https://www.jamesachambers.com/2018/03/ ... enchmarks/ . As we can see, the SSD is extremly more faster than the microSD or the pendrives, but it's the same on reading. On the dd test is much faster also, but I am asking myself if the reading speed is the same speed as a good microSD card (like mine) I will notice a really big difference.
Tomorrow I am going to receive the Raspberry pi 3 B+, which I read it has a improved USB boot capabilities so probably I am going to buy the SSD tomorrow, but just want to know if I am going to notice a big difference or not.
Someone knows if it exist a way to not have to power also the SSD? I mean just connecting it to the USB and no extra power
Sorry but what is the "PINN setup"?DarkPlatinum wrote: ↑Mon Oct 15, 2018 8:46 pmI use an external 1 TB HDD sea gate expansion drive. This works fine with my Raspberry Pi 3b+ PINN setup.
