RE: Swap space reduced?
I agree that swap can kill flash storage, but in current state, my phone is hardly usable.
I did experiment:
- Rebooted so that OS memory would be as clear as posible.
- ssh'ed into it and watched free -m output - it started with about (only!) 270MB avaialble memory
- Launched uNav, and kept scrolling as I if was driving.
- After some time, available memory got down to tenths of megabytes, and whole Untiy crashed!
I have these crashes when browsing with browser, or Reddit webapp, or similar. Just click on some link and boom - crash.
Swap HAS to be much bigger on such small memory devices as BQ E5...
I'll try to create bigger swap file and modify fstab to mount it...
Swap space reduced?
I've discovered that swap space is "only" 32MB on my BQ E5 with OTA-5:
$ free -m total used free shared buff/cache available Mem: 951 705 44 1 201 214 Swap: 31 31 0 phablet@ubuntu-phablet:~$ cat /proc/swaps Filename Type Size Used Priority /userdata/SWAP.img file 32764 32504 -1
I feel pretty sure (thought I could be wrong) that swap was bigger, about 512MB, could that be the case that swap was reduced during OTA-4/5?
I have noticed that after OTA-5, unity, browser and other webapps crashes more often. I thought maybe I get out of memory errors more often, and so I discovered swap space being only 32M.
How to introduce new keyboard language?
I would like to contribute Lithuanian (my native language) keyboard layout, don't know how's that done.
Is there a tutorial/notes on developing keyboard language?
Also, how could I test it without potentially breaking my daily driver Aquaris E5 phone?
P.S. I have C++, QML experience, just don't know where to start...
RE: Ubuntu Touch Programming Course
@talkless In my containers I replaced all urls by http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
also the ports ones
vivid vivid-security vivid-backports vivid-updates (main / multiverse / restricted / universe) are all included there
But there's no
ubuntu-portsrepository (directory) inside http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/
