I'm on Linux and the cache files are in ~/.secondlife/cache_sg1/ I can't find any in the install folder?. As I log in I can watch it cache the files . Delete the offending file and all is well. Log out and back in again and i see all the files reappear. I watched it happening in terminal to see if it's making a compressed file of the dsf files and hiding it; no joy. Even made an empty dsf file withe same uuid and replaced the original, same result, works until I log in again.
I'm no programmer but I would guess these files are stored on the server and just viewer cached on log in. Unfortunately I know nothing about databases so I can't go any further.
Seems retarded to me that these files would be fetched upon login, that would be a waste of data and time. Just as retarded would be for these files to extract from some archive, each time the programme is run but perhaps the files are copied upon login/launch to a temporary location from a source, and it's this temporary location that the programme uses.
Have you tried a complete drive search for that particular file ? If it's in 2 locations that's our answer.
My next suggestion was going to be to create a silent sound file, but you've tried this
I've no knowledge/experience with Linux, so you will need someone who does to respond or one of the devs.
Yes I have tried a silent sound file, it just gets overwritten on login as I stated in my last comment.
Yes I have tried a search of the singularity installed files and the /.secondlife folder, I can't find anything.
To attempt a search of the entire system would be like looking for needle in a haystack and take considerable time without some clue of where to start looking. I can look in the system /tmp but that would be deleted on shutdown even if I found it. The only other likely place is /var which I will look at today given time.
Doesn't the OS have a search function ? If so that shouldn't take long at all. Perhaps just search the filename, not the extension.
Failing finding and modifying the source you would have to wait for a Dev to respond (which could be sometime..) I'm merely a user sorry
Yes it does, but as singularity seems to store some uuids with a prefix or suffix it would mean using console commands like grep and string which I'm not all that good at to speed things up. and would produce reams of results if I wasn't very careful.
