Moderators

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. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

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 Java for Phex in OSX

I've been using Phex 2.6.4
I'm operating in OSX 10.4.6 with Java 1.5 forced as the 1st preference Java for all applications. Yet I've just noticed Phex is using Java 1.4.2
I'd have thought Java 1.5 would be preferential. Do the newer Phex versions allow for Java 1.5 on OSX?
Is a high no. of threads normal for Phex? Last time I noticed around 450 or so I think it was (after a few days.)

Also I notice the firewall icon takes about 10 mins to turn off. I have a port forwarded for Phex. I was so concerned recently I re-port forwarded thinking I hadn't port forwarded correctly when I previously used Phex (2-3 mths ago.) Why does Phex take so long to see that the listening port is already open for it.

BTW it would be nice if the window settings/positioning were retained for each time we re-opened Phex.

Edit: I haven't downlded anything this time & threads is 30 odd after about 4 hours.

Well not sure why Phex is using 1.4.2 on OSX, Java 1.5 would be much preferred. Specially since OSX is still the only environment where Java 1.5 is not the dominating Java VM used. So if you find a solution why 1.4 is used I would be very interested about it.

A high number of threads is usuall for Phex. Maybe after a few days the number growed a bit too high because of unknown leaks but if you hold many connections, downloads and uploads you can expect numbers well over 150 threads.

The firewall icon is buggy in Phex, it is a know problem since some time. But since its only a visuall problem not much effort is made to fix this yet. You can be sure even with firewall icon Phex is able to accept incomming connections and upload requests when your port is forwarded correctly.

The window position and size should be retained, also the width of table columns. In case it is not working for you, it might be a platform specific problem somewhere.

Well you have to change a line in info.plist found in Phex.app->Contents
At the line
<string>1.4*</string>
change that line to
<string>1.4+</string>

Phex should now use default JVM.

LODR, you can open and save the file in TextEdit

GregorK, can you change that in Phex Os x project?

Ciao

Great info... I must admit I'm a noob in OSX
But I changed it in the osx build process, it should be in the next release.

Thanks et voilà it worked like a treat. I'm using Phex 2.8.4_93, I must have opened the earlier version by mistake yesterday. I thought it looked a little different to the previous occasion. It seems to work a little better than 2.6.4 also re: search results, though that might just have been the timing, peers, etc..

2.8.10 should run fin on OSX with Java 1.4.2. Can you try to raise the memory Java is allowed to use with Phex. I think Arne was having similar issues back when he used OSX.
Try to start Phex like this:
java -Xmx256m -jar phex.jar
Which will allows 256MB RAM to be used for Java heap space...
If that would be too much for your system, anything above 64 will give Java more maximum heap space then the default setting.

I ran 2.8.10 in OS 10.3.9 (Java 1.4.2) without crash but it didn't connect .... needed to find out the port I opened for it in router so I had to reboot into 10.4.8 Will recheck soon. 1st time I had run it in that installation of 10.3.9

Well this is a Java only way of telling that you allow the Java VM to allocate more Heap memory... its not Mac specific.
Sometimes when the heap fills up close to its limits the Java VM has to do a lot cleanup processing and can become slow... not sure if this is a memory leak or just a higher heap usage in the latest release. Apperently VMs on different plattforms can deal more or less good with this situation.

The crash you posted is most likely not Phex related, most crashes are due to Java bug or incompatibilities with driver, os libraries or these things..

AFAIK the Java for OSX is not that efficient. Memory leaks or threads not giving up memory used. That was probably more evident in Java 1.4.2 for mac. Just my 2 cents. Not sure how that should apply to launching however.

For what it's worth ... I rebooted into 10.3.9 & changed to appropriate port for Phex to match router setting, & bingo ... immediate connection ... no firewall issue. And opened up nicely & behaved nicely.

I then rebooted into 10.4.8 (with Java 1.5) & bingo, Phex immediately connected "healthily" with no firewall icon issue. Nice set of connections too for both OS's but even a couple better now. That's better than the previous versions which were slowish to wake up to an open port. So far thread use is consistent at 58-59 & VM is also consistent at 430-40 MB. Good version!!! Will see how it behaves after days of use. A good long busy session to test it out.

Maybe's OAH's Apple G3 architecture is getting a bit 'long in the tooth' to handle the newer ...
