There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Bugs CPU usage and GTK-theme in linux

Hi, first of all I want to say: what a nice program. Much better than most alternatives because it's way more detailed. But there's a real annoying bug that spoils the fun. As soon as I start a download my CPU usage becomes very heavy. I'm on Ubuntu 6.10 linux. I have installed the newest Sun java: 1.5.0-10, Frostwire works fine with the same java installed.

Also the GTK theme doesn't take over my system look. When I start Phex in a terminal it says:
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:70: Engine "ubuntulooks" is unsupported, ignoring
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:240: Priority specification is unsupported, ignoring

This also happens when I use the default gnome theme, clearlooks.

Can this be solved, or do I have to install an older version of either java or Phex?

Ok thanks. No I don't run them simultaniously, I ran Frostwire only to test, I like Phex more.

Here are my pc specs:
Pentium III 500 mhz with 512MB-RAM

It shouldn't be a problem running Phex at all, but there is really something strange going on. When I do nothing everything works fine. But the moment I start a search the performance is already somewhat low: the GUI reacts slow and Phex slows down my system a bit. But the moment I start a single download with only few connections it gets much worse, the CPU starts ratteling whole the time and the whole system slows down to a crawl.

I doubt if I can go back to a previous java version because I can't find the older version on Suns website so I don't know how to get it, do you?

But first I'll try the previous version of Phex and let you know if the problem persists...

Well I've tried the previous version of Phex with java 1.5.0-10 but unfortunately the problem still persists. So I guess Phex can't get along with java 1.5 in linux so I 'm gonna test it with java 1.4. I've found the 1.4 version in the meantime and I will now install it and test Phex again with it...

The Ram should suffice, but we are working on tracking down a really nasty memory leak at the moment, which might well be one source of your problem.

Phex should work well with Java 1.5; in fact, the upcoming 3.0 will require at least java 1.5.

The somewhat higher memory useage of downloads might be due to the more complex download behaviour of Phex (it downloads rarest parts first, but can be configured to use employ other strategies like beginning of file first, or beginning and end).

As far as I know, Gregor is working on the Downloads at the moment, but I can't say how far he already got. If you can read Java code, the following subversion branch might give you some insight:

OK, thanks for the replies.

I've now tried both version 2.8.8.97 and 2.8.10.98 of Phex with Java 1.5 and 1.4 but unfortunately the problem persists.

I've also noticed that when I don't download it can be fine for a while but eventually the resources used by Phex although can become big and it even got to the point several times when it used 100% CPU.

I understand that Phex is an advanced program so it uses somewhat more resources, but this has to be a bug because the use of resources is so big I unfortunately can't use it because the system slows down too much so there's barely something left to do anything else.

I hope it gets solved in the near future because like i said before, I like the program...

GregorK, are you already around?
Is this bug already known to you?

The memory problem is known and we're working on it.

Just saw a new stable is out, 3.0. Guess it's already solved then? I will try it and report if the problem persists.

Yuck, 3.0 should solve that memory problem.
We had some old code which got accessed by new code more often than before and spilled some of its info into your Ram from time to time...
The old code is rewritten, now

I guess with theme you mean the look and feel you configure Phex to use, or? The GTK look and feel is something Sun Java provides, there is not much we can do about it. The best supported look and feel in Phex is PlasticXP.

To try to solve your CPU problem, try to reduce the max download connections global to 1. Ok, this will slow down your downloads very much, but it might help to find where the problem is. If you now have lower CPU, raise the value every few minutes and check if this is what makes your CPU suffer.
