I didn't experience filesystem or hardware related issues with my
SD-cards (opposed to MMC-cards, where the filesystem gets corrupted
frequently on N770 and N800, any firmware version) using

My problem is the metalayer-crawler eating up the CPU resources (as
discussed here: https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=978).

The metalayer-crawler process is running with a niceness of 19 and I
applied a custom path.  This is the command line (as listed by htop):

/usr/bin/metalayer-crawler -F -c /home/user/MyDocs/.video,/home/user/MyDocs/.sounds,/home/user/MyDocs/.images

Nevertheless metalayer-crawler seems to block the touch-screen almost
completely for about 10 minutes after system startup.

The filesystem on my card is OK, neither the high niceness nor the
custom path applied to metalayer-crawler affects the touch-screen issue
in a positive way.

The only fix which works for me is to switch off metalayer-crawler
completely (I don't care about the mediaplayer).

Bye, Andreas
