    However, just having Disable Compcache installed brings battery back to acceptable levels. Cannot tell objectively if just having that patch installed is improving the phone; but experientially, it seems to be running fine.
    I too have had issues with the battery drain when Sys Ctl was installed - with just Disable Compcache installed, at 1.68 Ghz, I was experiencing about 200-300 max mAh drain. After adding Sys Ctl, it consistently jumps all the way up to 480-520 mAh drain, which seems like quite a bit to me...according to Battery Monitor, that's around 30% drain per hour.

    Strange, I did not install the patches but manually modified the sysctl file, and my battery drain seems fine. Maybe a tad bit higher than before but nothing significant.

    Mine's around 300-400, but I think it's normal since I have Skype and Google Talk always on and those things are battery drainers. I have Touchstones everywhere I go so it's not really a concern for me.

    I only ran out once when I was at a friend's place, and I brought my phone back to life when I got back in my car.

    But with all the modifications, my phone is MUCH more usable. I rather sacrifice that battery life for a usable phone.

    And as an update... rmausser's newest settings seems to have worked so far. No reboots, though I do see more slowdowns than the previous set. Although they do seem to recover better than stock, which required a reboot to get rid of. Most lags goes away these days if I let my phone sit for a while, so I think that's an indication that the memory cleanup is working.

    That is an issue I have fixed with a more recent update.

    Unfortunately, the guys at the Patch Submission page seem to be on holidays, as none of my updates have gone through.

    Since I don't have the Sysctl currently installed; what version number should I look for that incorporates your fix? TIA!

    I had the "Disable Compcache and Enable Linux Swap" patch installed, then removed it... Decided to try it again, and I'm getting an error installing through Preware. For now I've just modified the compcache file through Internalz, but it would be nice to be able to use the Preware patch. Any thoughts on what's wrong? I've made sure all the settings in the /etc/event.d/compcache file are at default, as I had modified the memlimit_kb previously to remove the Govnah unknown profile error. I know it would fail with that changed - however, even with memlimit_kb set at the Pre3's standard 25600, I'm getting the log below.

    EDIT: I've managed to fix it by replacing the compcache file with the stock one from the webOS Doctor image to ensure no leftover changes, removing the patch name from the Preware patch list file in /media/internal, and reinstalling Preware just to be safe. Preware then said the patch was still installed, so I was able to remove and reinstall, and it worked fine.

    Has anybody tried this yet with 2.2.4?

    With the sysctl.conf and Disable Compcache and Enable Swap patch, my phone was rather unstable. I removed them but now I'm getting a lot of TMC errors.

    For one thing I notice the Disable Compcache patch seems to be completely non functional. Even Govnah reports compcache is back on after every reboot, this didn't happen in 2.2.3. And what's worse Govnah's acting weird now, I have three Palm Default profiles in there.

    rmausser, any chance you going to update the patches for 2.2.4?

    Just an update to this issue, think it sort of fixed it. Didn't doctor, but right now I'm running UberKernel 2.2.4-28, still with Compcache disabled.

    Occasionally the phone will still run out of memory and needs a reboot, but otherwise I can run it for a few days without rebooting or lagging.
