Hi Everyone,

For those who were disappointed about the extreme high memory usage (increased shortly after boot) , caused by the "dde-session-daemon" process, here's a fix:
Or call it a workaround, the best fix would be of course a recompile with patches for the dde-daemon binaries, but that's beyond my capability.

Upgrade the dde-daemon package by using Synaptic (click "Reload" first) or from terminal:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install dde-daemon     # installs higher version 1:3.0.16-1 from custom XD repo


Included in the new package: initscript (in/etc/init.d) which calls the script /usr/local/bin/ddesessd-limitmem that controls memory usage of the "dde-session-daemon" process.

I tested on a machine with 2GB of RAM and works fine, not sure how it works with higher or lower amount of RAM, please anyone test ?? and let me know.

Edit 2016-12-23, After a lot more testing I'm pretty confident that this fix is solid
New ISO uploaded, fixed high memory usage caused by dde-session-daemon

Previous ISO removed from Github

Yes it's rather heavy, certainly compared to other dogs Wink
And 1GB of RAM is not much, make sure to have swap enabled.
To toggle on/off compiz, press Super+Tab

Hi fred !
What went wrong ?...........
I added one line in Boot Menu.lst ............
"find --set-root /DEEPIN/casper/vmlinuz
kernel /DEEPIN/casper/vmlinuz from=/DEEPIN noauto changes=EXIT:/DEEPIN/casper/"
Before it was
" kernel /DEEPIN/casper/vmlinuz from=/ noauto changes=EXIT:/DEEPIN/casper/"

I think that "from=/DEEPIN" did the job .

Idea Merry Christmas Idea

Me .....not so happy/merry with Terror Attack in Berlin Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Hi All,

I decided not to continue working on this XenialDog Deepin edition, reasons are:
- performance of the system is not good, e.g. starts using swap very soon after boot, can't really figure out why, maybe also has to do with the memory leak problems as mentioned in earlier posts.
- made a much lighter DebianDog-Stretch with Deepin DE and will focus on that.

Thread Closed

Fred

Thanks backi, testing always appreciated.
The Stretch Deepin may still not be your cup of tea, although it's much lighter than the Xenial version, it's still a lot heavier than e.g. openbox or jwm of course.
It runs fine on my 2GB RAM HP laptop, btw.

I'm just exploring other DE's and try to make as small and light as possible, and at the moment I sort of fell in love with Deepin Smile , I might come up later maybe with a Debiandog-Gnome also.

Happy New Year !!

Fred
