Palm port of Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation

This website features a Blank Page according to the recommendations of the TPILB-Project.


Won't be long: The next version of ramdefrag is to be expected in the end of Discord/beginning of Confusion 3178 (May 2012 in old dates).

Happy New Year! Yes, releases keep coming very slowly, mainly because our development team is very busy finding new algorithms and new theoretical approaches to the problem. However, we're working very hard on the project, and we're looking forward to the next release.

We are very pleased to announce that there is a new port of Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation coming alive: Version 0.4.0 has been ported to the maemo development platform, and there's already a preliminary binary package for the Nokia 770 Internet Tablet, so you can defragment your free RAM as soon as this great device hits the shelves. The port is not perfect, yet; we're working on making defragmentation of your handheld even faster, and on nicer integration in the maemo framework.

This news entry comes a little bit late perhaps, because as some of you might already have noticed, we finally released Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation version 0.4.0. Major change for this release is the use of version 2 GTK+ libraries but of course there are also uncountable improvements under the hood. Head for the download page and get the latest version of Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation to keep your memory efficient.

Long time no news, the transition to GTK+-2.x is being worked on, but in the meanwhile we have two important news for you defraggers out there. First (and probably most of you noticed it already) we have a RSS feed, so you don't have to check back to this site every now and then just to see that nothing happened. Just enter this URL in your favourite RSS-reader and you're all set up. Second, we compiled binary packages for our AMD64 users. So you can finally defrag all your 18 Exabytes of RAM. Download the packages here.

SO, 37. Dsc 3171

Finally, version 0.3.2 has been released, with new features to ease automation of RAM defragmentation runs. This is going to be the last release of ramdefrag which uses GTK+-1.2; we're now working on the transition to GTK+-2.x.

Older News

You'll find some outdated news on a seperate page.

What is it?

'Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation' is a so-called Memory Defragmenter, also called RAM defragmenter, RAM/memory booster, RAM/memory optimizer, etc.
By its visionary design, 'Multi Platform RAM Defragmentation' makes your computing platform run faster while simultaneously increasing system stability, and testers all over the world report that it also does a great job in delivering world peace and harmony.

What platforms does it run on?

Basically, anything vaguely Unix-like which can run GTK+ applications. You can get binary and source packages for RPM- and dpkg-based systems at our Sourceforge file releases page, as well as a source tarball which is known to compile under at least Linux, Solaris, NetBSD and FreeBSD.
The Palm OS-port homepage can be found on a seperate page.

How does it work?

Well, maybe we'll add an exact description of the RAM defragmentation theory here if we find one. Until then, try to use Google to search for similar products with maybe better descriptions.
Or maybe our description used to register the project at will lead you.

Note: If you're looking for usage information, see the "Download and Usage" section below.


Download and Usage

Download the binary .deb or .rpm packages from our Sourceforge file releases page and install them with your favourite package manager.
If you can't find binary packages for your flavour of unix, then download the .tar.gz archive, extract it with gunzip and/or tar, and try the good ol' ./configure; make; make install trick. You should then be able to use it by the command 'ramdefrag'.
Well, and don't forget to send us bug reports and/or patches.

Detailed usage instructions can be obtained by reading the manual page for ramdefrag; either by trying man ramdefrag on a system where ramdefrag is installed, or by having a look at our on-line html version. There is also a A4 postscript version for those who want to print it. Note that these on-line versions of the manual page apply to the latest CVS version of ramdefrag and may be slightly inaccurate for other (e.g., stable) versions.

Again: Send us reports of your experiences, please.
