Can you check how much free memory you have when it glitches?It seems like if I go through menus too quickly, then it'll glitch like that and then every single button I press turns into the 'next' button. It may be because I'm on a G4 Mac Mini.
Rebooted the computer, and it still refuses to start. I have to force quit the process.
All I changed was the fact that I added about 10000 Mp3's. This simply might be too much for the PowerPC processor to handle. I may have to rethink my CarPC plans, or just upgrade to an Intel Mac Mini.
I'm guessing quite a large chunk of that "~900 MB" is actually a swap file? ICEł will definitely slow down once it creates a swap file.Hmm, I went to go check that for you, and now it won't start. I clicked it and it's just bouncing in the dock, with CPU usage at 90%, VM memory usage for the thread at 3.85 GB, Real Memory usage at ~900 MB. And it wouldn't start.
It will probably get there, eventually.Rebooted the computer, and it still refuses to start. I have to force quit the process.
10000 tracks with a PowerPC? Are there any other PowerPC users with a library of this size?All I changed was the fact that I added about 10000 Mp3's. This simply might be too much for the PowerPC processor to handle. I may have to rethink my CarPC plans, or just upgrade to an Intel Mac Mini.
It eventually crashed and quit on its own, I can't get it to open anymore. I think the VM usage would be the swap file, the ~900 MB is real memory usage. My free memory goes to like 5 MB as Ice3 tries to start up.
Hmm, as soon as I rename the music folder where Ice3 is looking, it'll start up just fine. Any thoughts?
If you're changing where ICE is looking, but leaving the music where it is, I'd say that you've maxed out your memory/processing capabilities on your computer. 10,000 songs is crazy big. I think I have 400...if that
I mean, of course I don't know the indepth programming of the front end, but if iTunes can handle the 10000 songs, then I don't know what could be the problem. While I was switching songs in Ice3, it came across a deauthorized song, and an iTunes warning came up, so I'm assuming the frontend is using something iTunes related.
Checking memory usage with no songs loaded into Ice3, I'm at 838 MB VM, and 100 MB of real RAM. That is acceptable.
But you did say you were at 90% CPU usage, that's not so good
