MONO version not using disk cache?

May 17, 2010 at 10:12 AM

In the process of geting this to run on linux (all I did was update the sqllite references - brilliant!!) I noticed that the version compiled using MONO runs much slower and seems to get stuck loading tiles sometimes. Comparing the MONO and Visual Studio version both on windows I noticed that the \AppData\Roaming\GMap.NET\TileDBv3\en\Data.gmdb file is only created and accessed when using the visual studio version - even the MONO version on the downloads page doesn't work.

Is this an error with something silently failing?

i solved issue by checking for empty db on startup once, because sqlite in mono version somehow locks the database... Still first time takes a little more time than usual, but after that, all seems to work as good as expected, check the demo again
