Thank you.
 My comment that the update is enabled in Linux Mint is outdated, and no longer true.
I use this to enable updating inxi:
 
Code: [Select]
sudo sed -i 's/^B_ALLOW_UPDATE=false/B_ALLOW_UPDATE=true/' /etc/inxi.conf (which conforms to the link you posted)

My original suggestion that it should be enabled by default still applies.

Hi

I installed LL 3.0 64 on my netbook and have found on Help Guide for a step-by-step to how enable daily TRIM for SSD drives, but I'm not secure enough to do this myself.

If the "Lite Tweaks" could add this funcionality, would be great!

I did look at this once, but it's very complex and I'm somewhat reluctant to write any software that configures peoples storage devices. Data loss is somewhere I'd like to stay well away from.

I think some of this is being done automatically.  Recently I installed an SSD into my mother's laptop.  When I went to follow the "Enabling TRIM for your SSD" part of the Help Manual, it seemed like some gremlins beat me to it.  The noatime part was already done.  And if I recall correctly, I only had to edit the /etc/rc.local file and move the cron.weekly job.  The edited rc.local file covered every partition I had set for the drive, so this seems like something that Lite Tweaks could do for a drive running only Linux Lite, but it could become dicey for drives with a multi-boot setup.  But then, what do I know?

For the record, I'm still learning.  It seems if one does nothing, fstrim will run on a weekly basis.  And the Help Manual appears to instruct us to have it run at startup instead, while creating a log file listing what was trimmed for each partition.

New feature, 'Clear memory' frees up system memory. Will prove useful for older machines.

TRIM (or fstrim) is already installed.  To configure it to run on each boot, and to see a log file of its results, see the Help Manual. 

Menu > Favorites > Help Manual, and then select:
    * Install (or Install Guide)
       and then
    * Enabling TRIM on your SSD

Thank you, torreydale. Does LL ship without root user activated?

Hey Jerry,


Am a bit confused regarding this tweak.


Would you please be so kind and give some background information?


I've learned that the system is managing and utilizing the memory as efficiently as possible. And it's not a bad sign that the physical memory is utilized as much as possible to increase access speed (referring to the difference between used and active memory -> vmstat -s). The only way that makes sense to influence the memory usage as a user and avoid undesired swappping is basically to close applications and stop unnecessary services and use a lightweight (desktop) system itself, to reduce the load on the system by being mindful of how many applications are run in parallel.


Here two links reflecting what I knew so far:
http://serverfault.com/questions/597115/why-drop-caches-in-linux
http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/87908/how-do-you-empty-the-buffers-and-cache-on-a-linux-system


Open to learn something new though... :)
