If possible, could cpu or gpu temperatures be monitored?
Comment by: ddni ( 11 Jan 2014, 15:02File version: 1.59
Thanks for the update. It seems that Amiupdate does not find 1.59.
Should it be installed manually?

Comment by: Phantom ( 10 Feb 2013, 12:33File version: 1.56
AmiUpdate didn't notice me of this new (1.56) update, so I had to downloaded it from here. Just an info.
Comment by: cha05e90 ( 04 Feb 2013, 19:15File version: 1.54
Oops - typo in the version string (2012 vs. 2013), AmiUpdates still thinks it should be updated... ;-)

It was an Os4 problem : with the update 1, it's OK
Comment by: shadowsun ( 05 Jan 2010, 07:12File version: 1.43
I don't know if it is a ranger problem or an Os4 problem, but the graphics bug in the exec tab is still here (windows' minimum size is not enough = graphics corruption)
Comment by: kas1e ( 02 Jan 2010, 12:23File version: 1.43
1.43 version works fine, but still, many tabs not have "auto-refreshing". As i read on amigans.net, author do not want to make it automatically, becouse of some "forbid/permit" calls, but when user press on "refresh" button, the same calls are happenes, so, why not make it just "auto-pressing" when user swith on any tab ?
Comment by: kas1e ( 15 Dec 2009, 09:09File version: 1.41
The same corruption while resizing in exec tab in 1.41 version, and a suggestion:
why need to press "refresh" for first time ? Imho for first time when i go to any tab, it must be "auto-refreshing" (first time). Or maybe even better just do always auto-refreshing while user press on any tab.
Comment by: shadowsun ( 15 Dec 2009, 07:16File version: 1.41
- in the exec tab, windows' minimum size is not enough (graphics corruption) (version 1.40, not tried yet 1.41)
Comment by: meet.mrnrg ( 12 Apr 2009, 16:30File version: 1.36
Disk Block Sizes??? Doesn't seem to be reporting 4096, as per right-click-information tab.
Comment by: Lio ( 23 Sep 2008, 08:57File version: 1.33
in the BIOS tab, I dont see lsi53c8xx_override, scsi_pci_override,
lsi53c8xx_timeout and lsi53c8xx_verbose variables listed although I see them
with the nvget command !
thanks anyway for updating this nice tool !

Steven Solie informs me that he refuses to take any input in the form of bug
reports, requests etc in any other way than by email.

When selecting the DOS part I always get this message in a requester:

FTP connection to .                    has been refused 

Looks like the ftpmount handler doesn't like the way you are querying it for
Comment by: Jack ( 23 Jul 2008, 14:12File version: 1.25
Ooops, I meant window size and location.
Comment by: Jack ( 23 Jul 2008, 14:10File version: 1.25
Just noticed that ranger stores the location in prefs automatically. Should be
optional imho.

DejaVu Sans/12 is to small on 1280x1024!

thanks and

Works well on classic too! :-)

Comment by: Lio ( 22 Dec 2007, 14:49File version: 1.16
how do I snapshot the window's position ?
anyway thanks a lot, lots of interesting info delivered by this "Swiss army
knife" tool !
Comment by: ssolie ( 13 Dec 2007, 18:55File version: 1.14
AmiUpdate support was added back at version 1.6 guys.
Comment by: Lio ( 12 Dec 2007, 17:28File version: 1.14
I second the amiupdate support request because releases are so close that I can
not follow :-)

thanks a lot for this tool !
Comment by: walkero ( 10 Dec 2007, 06:14File version: 1.13
Great program. I wish I could close or end some processes and windows/screens.
Keep up the good work.

AmigaOS3.x ?????
Comment by: MichaelMerkel ( 30 Sep 2007, 18:31File version: 1.2
- amiupdate support ;-) (every program should offer this)
- sort the task some way - seems completely unsorted currently? (alphabetically
would be handy)

thanks and
Comment by: anonymous ( 30 Sep 2007, 16:58File version: 1.2
This is a very handy tool. Thanks. Very helpful.

It would be nice to scroll with the mouse scroller button. I have been testing
the program and had 2 strange "input" freezes on WorkBench. I can drag
windows and open menus but no programs are launched and icons don't show a
selected state when clicked. I can't seem to reliably reproduce the problem and
it may not be a Ranger issue. If I can find a way to reproduce the problem I'll
let you know.
Comment by: TSK ( 12 Jan 2007, 11:40File version: 1.0
Could you add "kill process" button to it ? (I know there's also
Comment by: spot ( 11 Jan 2007, 09:45File version: 1.0
Nice tool SSolie. =)
Heh, I've never seen all processes on an Amiga visually like this before. It
gives you a great overview. One thing that struck me is that I know what 95% of
the processes do (well roughly atleast) while under windows i know what 10% do
and 20% of the processes looks like spyware. Aaaah... the beautiful simplicity
of AmigaOS.
