Re: [Sc-devel] [windows] weak wifi connection puts psycollider into"not responding" state

Hi James

I have a vague recollection that one of the Berkely Sockets api calls which converts host names to numbers may block if it can't contact a name server but the network is up (if the network is not up it fails instantly). The internal timeout is kind of long.. I wonder if you wait long enough whether it wakes up again?

Was just trying to play with psycollider on a laptop with a weak wifi
connection. It would finish compiling and then freeze - uninstall and
reinstall didn't fix it.

Turning off the wifi connection instantly makes it respond.


- strong (wired) wifi - works
- no internet - works
- weak internet - hangs
