Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

Thanks! Going to test this new stuff.

Does this mean you need more ram memory?
does it gives problems with permissions? (gdm)
is it faster? Is it safe? (crash...)

Thanks!

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

You put compact flash cards in a raid0?  Asd, once synced, accesses at RAM speeds, I.e. nanoseconds whereas HDD and SSD access on the order of milliseconds.  Raid or no raid.  Enjoy.

Yes, raid0 is outlined in my installation post.

I appreciate the response and will give the asd a go!

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

graysky:

Cannot get the package to install.

Your post says to insatll like a normal package,, thus pacman -U package.

Doesn't install,

Used tar xvJf to untar the tarball and find nine items in /var/local.

What next?

EDIT:  sh-4.2# cd /var/local
sh-4.2# makepkg --asroot PKGBUILD
==> ERROR: install file (readme.install) does not exist.

@lil - did you download the tarball or the PKGBUILD?  I'm guessing the PKGBUILD.  Download the tarball.

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

This is what happens with my attempts:

sh-4.2# cd /var/local
sh-4.2# makepkg -s /var/local/anything-sync-daemon-1.3.tar.xz
==> ERROR: Running makepkg as root is a BAD idea and can cause permanent,

sh-4.2# makepkg -s --asroot /var/local/anything-sync-daemon.tar.gz
==> ERROR: install file (readme.install) does not exist.

Probably don't follow your posting correctly but do not find the readme-install file anywhere.

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

First, never run makepkg as root.  Do it as your user.
Second, do this:

$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/an/anything-sync-daemon/anything-sync-daemon.tar.gz
$ tar zxf anything-sync-daemon.tar.gz
$ cd anything-sync-daemon
$ makepkg -srci

graysky:

I have no usr just root.  I always use --asroot with PKGBUILDS.

Anyhow, I have to try again.

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

I have been root for ten years or more.

I successfully ran the .gz version --asroot.

The readme-install file was in the list and the install progressed forthwith.

It did not perform with the xz format.

I appreciate your patient reponses and am pleased that it is now available.

Have a good May time!

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

Hi, thanks for providing this package.

I have been using the profile-sync daemon for a while and it works fine, now i want to use asd, too.
So is it a good idea to use both?

I also like the idea to have only one daemon, as mentioned before.
Maybe it is better to setup asd to do psd's job, and how would i do that?
(i use firefox)

Re: anything-sync-daemon - keep ANYTHING in tmpfs and sync'ed

i think the right path for firefox is /home/yourusername/.mozilla .
Put it in asd.conf and everything should work (i use asd with chromium)

See post #7, and the rest of this thread.  I use both since myself.  They aren't really daemons.  They are just scripts.  In other words, they both don't run in memory, rather, they both get called from cron when needed.  There is no extra overhead.
