Title: Option to not check for updates
Post by: baryluk on March 13, 2021, 10:24:30 PM
I just noticed that GeexLab is doing network checks for new versions, and opens a browser to inform about the new version. This is somehow disruptive, and I wish there was a way for it to not do that.

I am using Linux version.

yes you can disable the check for a new version in the init0.xml: just add the check_version="0" attribute.

Or in command line:
Code: [Select]
./GeeXLab /no_online_check

Thank you. That works:

connect(4, {sa_family=AF_UNIX, sun_path="/var/run/nscd/socket"}, 110) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

^C

Would be great if /help actually showed the available options.
