    This is probably a dumb question but how do you clear log files when they are too big for the file editor? My rs.log is now 994MB.

    ...and also starting to use up a significant proportion of your disk space!

    This appeared to work: Telnet into box, navigate to tmp directory and "rm rs.log"

    I'll add automatic log file management to the package to stop it getting too big.

    I am slightly baffled as to how it could get that big:confused: . With no swap space it only has 128MiB of memory and most of that will be in use.

    It's in /mod/tmp/ so on the disk.

    The latest version of the rs package will truncate the log if it reaches 10MiB.
