How many of you think litestep is not that stable as it used to be?
LS is 100's of times better than it used to be...just gotta get a good theme and yer good to go.
my point exactly. one fun part of using litestep is having lots of themes at ur disposal. but i have found that litestep crashes a lot nowadays when u swap between themes a lot. and these are random exits... thats it. i have been using litestep for ages now. it was a shell that never crashed even after 100s of recycle. cant say that now. I agree litestep is much better now. but will also say that its is a little less stable than before.
In previous versions many errors were unhandled and so gave the illusion of stability; Now in LS 0.24.7 there's more error detection, or at least the messages of faulting module(s) I get hint that ;)
But more than ever I do get ntdll.dll/msvcrt.dll errors in litestep.exe (when LS does happen to freak out).
All the problems that I have in that situation is faulty modules being used in themes. I actually had LS lock-up and die on me the other day over grdTray being used in a theme. I don't blame LS for my stability problems...just the bad themers that don't test.
i think that we should mark or comment on modules that areold and unsupported, that way people use the modules that will work. Look at the description of grdtray in loose-screws: A system tray replacement module for LiteStep which provides greater control over appearance, placement and icon layout.
if i were new to ls i'd use it.
That descripti9on works for that module fine...some versions of the module are great...some, which people seem to always use, are not. Again you get into the same problem of people using personal feelings to "mark" a module. I believe that comments are the best answer still.
Unfortunately there is only one version of grdtray which is "great", and that version was never released. A few copies are floating around here and there, but they're hard to identify as only the date of the file changed iirc, not the version number. But systray2 and vtray should still be superior.
