Using Popcorntime I usually find one issue, when I try to find a film or some series or after I've watched 2 films, Popcorntime inform me a system error telling me that I haven't memory enough to report it.

I have always to restart my computer but I've tried another solutions too.

I've fixed my cache pressure to 50.

When that bug is reported I use this two commands:

sudo rm -rf /tmp/*

to erase my temprary files and

sudo sysctl -w vm.drop_caches=3 

to drop my cache...

This didn't fix the issue...

I left you here my output from

I have popcorn time configured to drop temporary files when I close it but it actually dosen't drop anything until I restart my computer.

My question is:

Can I erase temporary files stored in temporary files folder inside Popcorntime without restarting my pc?

I don't know if I have explained my problem properly, if anyone think that I have to express it another way I will gladly accept any help...

Thanks in advance.

  • Are you not using a hard disk or is it full? Popcorn Time (or any other application) should be saving files to a disk not your RAM. – Kristopher Ives Sep 27 '18 at 4:10
  • Yes I am using a hard disk ubuntu 18.04.1 I am going to edit my question adding my df -h output... just in case... – ft18 Sep 27 '18 at 9:49
  • And of course it should be that way but therefore is my question, I don't think popcorn is using cache I don't know why it keep telling me ther is no memory enough to report a bug... that is the question... – ft18 Sep 27 '18 at 9:55
