Graphic Card change

Post by beatjunky99 » Fri Jul 27, 2012 5:32 pm

Hi,

downloaded LS 3.0 Preview, it's great, especially the incoming connection denial...

But... ^^ If you deinstall LS 3.0 and have other filesystem operations (copy/move/chmod...) running at the same time, next time you boot network speed is really limited (about 10% of original speed). (retried this several times, to fix just install LS 3.0 again, then quit all apps, have no filesystem operations running and then deinstall LS 3.0).

Next up: I remarked, that LS reqires my MacBookPro to run on the discrete graphiccard, so just about 3 hours with LS installed... Even disable network filter does not help, you first have to kill LSAgent from Terminal, then it changes back to integrated graphics mode... I think this change of graphics mode belongs to the new networkmonitor, but its also working well on my integrated if I force this mode with gfxCardStatus.app. So would it be possible to give me back my 7 hours of battery life even with LS enabled?

Greez and happy coding on new gorgeous Little Snitch,

+1 about the forced use of the discrete graphic card.
Specially as LS runs all the time…

On the opposite, I noticed a few apps that were triggering discrete card use have stopped since Mountain Lion, e.g. Delibar, Sparrow, Twitterrific, etc.
I really hope you can do it too.

I also noticed this. I don't see any reason why LS really has to use the discrete graphics. So, I agree that it would we nice if this can be fixed in the final release. Otherwise I'm really happy with the new stuff. Great work! Thanks!

Same problem.

Battery life adversely effected...

Bumped this and reported it as a bug. Suggest you do likewise as they may not have time to browse the forum...

For me upgrading to Preview 2 (3867) fixed this problem.

In my case (15'' MBP early 2011, OS 10.6) Preview 2 doesn't seem to have fixed anything. LS is still 'GPU dependend'.
