Interlink is a fork of Mozilla's Emailclient
, and like Palemoon, the people behind Interlink concentrate on the main core, making the source code more stable and more efficient than adding unnecessary flashy features. Only Linux x86-64 is supported, no Linux i486/i586 support for Interlink. (There is 32 Bit and 64 Bit support for SM-Windoze,but on here, who would care about that. :crazy: )

And it is quite the performant little program, seems not to drag the system down as much as Thunderbird did when I last used it. Your mileage might vary.

I created the module while running Openbox, so there should be no dependency issues. Theoretically. :D

Anyhow, by default it downloads all of your INBOX and all other Email boxes like spam or trash. That's in my case of my main Email account a mere 1052MB, and it goes all into your RAM aufs filesystem and might freeze or even crash your system.
So, after you made your setup, aka gave the email address and IMAP and whatnot, best exit Interlink and move the folder "/home/guest/.binary outcast" and all subfolders to a non-RAM based media, best one with Linux filesystem.

This looks like so on my machine:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# ls -l .binary\ outcast
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Dec 31 03:39 .binary outcast -> /mnt/sda6/home/guest/.binary outcast/
You also could use a FAT or NTFS filesystem, but be aware of the possible risks when you let Interlink store your Email account password. :hi:
Therefore I strongly recommend using a Linux filesystem for storing the Interlink data and email post boxes

Since it is in early development, please visit the thread about Interlink on the palemoon forum.

Cave! Be aware that this version is a test version. It works fine for me, I did not run into any issue so far, all works as it should, not a single bug or glitch, but still: it is not yet officially released!

Here is the CPU usage on a 8 Core machine with both palemoon and interlink running, OS is Porteus of course, DE is Openbox.

Code: Select all

 PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND
14470 guest     20   0 2135288 260400   1444 R  21.7   6.6  17:54.68 interlink

And a few days later, the same with palemoon, interlink and several terminal, uxterm, viewnior, mousepad and one mpv in pause running, and this is the CPU usage:

Code: Select all

  PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU  %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND
 9287 guest     20   0 3536260   1.1g 115720 S  11.1  28.8 222:57.41 palemoon
    1 root      20   0     240      0      0 S   0.0   0.0   0:02.06 init
Such a neat non-CPU-hogging backgrounded programs makes Rava a very happy camper! :)

And here a screenshot of how it looks like.

And finally, some top, df and swap info while running Openbox/Porteus and Palemoon, Audacious with OpenGL spectrum Analyser, mpv (paused), Interlink, several viewniors, several Leafpads, and there is no system lag whatsoever:
