G6.a. What tips in general do you have to keep MachTen stable?
Watch your memory. Running Netscape 3.0 and MachTen at the same time is a
bad idea if you have only 16 MB of RAM. Run a disk error checker often and a
disk defragmenter at least once every three weeks (assuming daily use of
MachTen). Install all necessary patches and updates.
G6.b. Why does MachTen give the error message 'vmunix: file: table is full'
when I try to run a program?
This error is caused by the open files value in the MachTen control panel
being set to low. Increase the number of files allowed to be opened in the
control panel and the error message will disappear. Don't increase the open
files value too drastically, because each file handle requires memory.
Ideally, increase the open files value in increments of 20, until the error
message no longer appears.
