Patch for ROX-Filer fix possible slow running

November 04, 2018 — BarryK

Puppy Forum member jamesbond posted a patch that fixes a potential slow-down of ROX-Filer:

That was posted in 2016! I have only just seen it. This is the thing with the Puppy Forum, so much going on, so many great things happening, it is very easy to miss stuff.

You will see in the above link, some testers had difficulty applying the patch. That's because there is different source and they were patching a later fork of ROX-Filer. My source is the original from 2011, with various patches applied.

For EasyOS, ROX-Filer is compiled in 'oe-qky-src', and I have now applied jamesbond's patch:

Thanks James!
