Hello everyone,

emelFM2 allows one on Linux, at build time, to select out of four
different ways of monitoring files: inotify, dnotify, fam and gamin.
From this Gentoo article,, I
understand that inotify is preferable to dnotify and gamin to fam.
However, out of the better two, which one is best: inotify or gamin?

Thanks in advance,

Users can unsubscribe from the list by sending email to 
emelfm2-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the subject field or by 
logging into the web interface.
