Debian :: Have Slow Download For Update / Speed This Up?

May 26, 2010

I am using debian(lenny) on a pc coexisting with windows. I use grub to decide which o/s to boot.

I picked debian, logged in as a regular user. I selected "Administration" under the "System" tab and then selected "Update Manager". I had to provide the root password.

I was asked to insert Binary DVD-1 and was told to use smart update. I did at which time 16 files begun downloading at between 4400 B/s and 4800 B/s from the Security server. It looks like it is downloading a new linux image.

Is there any way to speed this up?

Ubuntu Installation :: Slow Download Speed On Update Manager

Jul 11, 2010

Ran the update manager, system was pretty much up to date, only a few files to download. Was it ever SLOW. Most of the time I can download from other sites about 650 kB/s. The update was around 10 kB/s and slower sometimes. What is wrong? Just a lot of people updating at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Slow Download Speed On Wireless Connection

Jun 5, 2010

Basically the problem is a slow download speed over my wireless connection that does not occur in Windows Vista. The reason I'm so annoyed is that the speed is not constantly slow. It bursts at around 600kb/s (good for my internet connection). The problem is that while trying to download a file it bursts for about a second,then total throughput decreases to +/- 1kb/s for a few seconds, then another burst and so on. Note the file I'm downloading is a http:// download, not p2p or anything. I've attached a screenshot of the System Monitor.

Some additional info. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 with all available updates installed. The browser in use is Google Chrome.

General :: Installed Ubuntu 10.10 - Slow Download Speed

Feb 13, 2011

I have just installed ubuntu 10.10 and i have noticed that my download speed is quite slow. i have an excellent connection to the internet and i didn't have any speed problems when i used windows vista. (i'm using a friend's windows 7 os right now and everything is fine.) how do i modify the download/bandwidth feature that is naturally a part of the ubuntu package so that it's not a problem anymore? the most i think i saw it download packages and files was 37 kb/s.

Basically, the kind of downloads i'm doing are for installing new packages to ubuntu, and that took ages. i even tried to download ubuntu 10.04 from ubuntu.com and it would have taken almost 3 hours to complete!

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Download Speed Incredibly Slow ?

Jul 30, 2011

So i am very new to linux based OS. Just started getting used to the terminal. but my problem is i am trying to install a game on steam and it is downloading very slow. i am used to getting close to 700 kb/s on windows 7 but on ubuntu 11.04 i am only getting 170-180 max. now i have searched all over and tried to fix it on my own but i just cant figure it out and am getting very frustrated. so if anybody has an idea as to how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. (have looked through the forum by the way but as i said im new to linux and im not actually sure if im looking at the right things) but im using a wired connection. it says im connected to something called auto etho. and there is something called a loopback connection or something like that.

Fedora :: Yum Update Through Mirrors Very Slow / Speed It Up?

Aug 7, 2010

Does anyone know if the Yum fastestmirror plugin only makes decisions based on latency to pick the best host or does it measure bandwidth? On my laptop for the last few weeks I've been getting super slow yum updates (3.5kB/sec), when I force it to use the baseurl it runs as fast as I'd expect (160+KB/sec).

So the fastestmirror plugin doesn't seem to work unless maybe it's measuring latency as fast but the actual download speed is slow. If so, fastestmirror plugin should really take both into account.

Debian :: Slow USB Transfer Speed With MC

Nov 15, 2010

I have a 500gB USB drive connected to my laptop for backups and filestorage. But I can't get it to play nice with Midnight Commander. My transfer speeds max ut at 2MB/s wich is painfully slow when moving large files such as movies. Worker FM transfers the same files to the same drive much MUCH faster (not sure by how much, though). This leads me to the conclusion that the problem lies with MC.

Debian Hardware :: Blu-ray Writing Speed Is Slow (250kb/sec)

Oct 21, 2014

I mount a BD-RE in Debian Jessie to write about 20GB of data. But the writing speed is terrible slow. I get a Speed of 250kb/sec.

Are there any options to increase the speed of writing? I don't use packet writing and no wodim, no growisofs, nothing. I just mounted the disk and I use mc (Midnight commander) to copy the data.

Debian Hardware :: Slow Outgoing Network Speed With RTL8111 / 8168B

Sep 18, 2014

I'm experiencing very slow network speeds in one direction (out) on a clean install of debian.

iperf client running on laptop connecting to server with issue:

I've tried with different cables on the server, no luck. Also note that the laptop gets full speed to speedtest.net as per my internet subscription (75/75 gbit fiber), so the laptop can be ruled out as a problem since it gets more than 75X performance to the internet compared to the local server.

The main purpose of this server is to be a virtualbox host. I've set up one guest system and ran iperf between the host/guest (bridged network). It gives better numbers, still the host -> guest direction is much slower than it should be:

Debian Configuration :: Slow Transfer Speeds On SAMBA Share But Gigabit Speed On SCP

Feb 12, 2016

I'm having a strange problem with data transfers between systems. I have a file server + my desktop. Both are running Debian 8.3. I have a samba share running on the file server and I mount the shares on my desktop on boot via /etc/fstab

When I copy a file using the nautilus from my home folder (on my HDD) on my desktop to the mounted network location, my transfers start out at gigabit speeds 80MB/s-90MB/s for a couple seconds and then drop down to about 8MB/s

But when I terminate the transfer and then use scp to transfer the same file, I get consistent gigabit speed throughout the transfer. I am not sure what is going on.

Debian Hardware :: RTL8723BE Slow After Update - Also Cannot Run Make

Mar 26, 2016

My system is rather flaky as of late. I was trying, yet again, to get the internal bluetooth (rtl8723be) to work, so I could free up one of only two usb ports on the lenovo ideapad 100. In my blinding brilliance I typed make uninstall, after make did not work (why I did this, I still don't know), and I noticed that it said btusb.ko was removed, as expected at reboot, no bluetooth adaptors were found, I tried reinstalling bluetooth via apt-get, no success, so finally I just ran apt-get update, and apt-get upgrade, once finished, my system did not want to reboot with a sudo init 6, so I hard powered it off and restarted, after it's obligatory fsck, everything okie dokie, it booted up and voila, bluetooth working again, or should I say, the usb adaptor bluetooth, not the rtl8723be.

So I figured, ah, the heck with it, just enjoy my speaker for watching a movie via kodi, and that's when I see that it's buffering continuously so I check a couple different speed tests, and my wifi is only pulling 2.0ish mb down, I booted into windows 10, just to check, and sure enough, same result.....so I don't know if the adapter is dying or what, so, I figure, I'll try and update the driver, this is where I run into not being able to run any make commands they all error with:

Code: Select allmake[1]: Entering directory '/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'modules'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/build'
Makefile:393: recipe for target 'LINUX' failed
make: *** [LINUX] Error 2

I have installed the linux headers, and followed this post here, [URL] .... (substituting my uname -r of course)

still having the sudo init 6 not working, and the slow wifi, as well as internal bluetooth not working.

Code: Select all3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u4 (2016-02-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Debian :: Unable To Download All The Update In One Go And To Complete The Upgrade?

Jul 16, 2010

My internet connectivity is not that fast. Since I am using Squeeze, there will be very frequent updates.

My problem is that I am not able to download all the update in one go and to complete the upgrade. As the number of files to be downloaded and upgraded increases, I can't seem to be able to reach the end point to complete any update.

Can aptitude upgrade just the files that have been downloaded so far, and resume downloading the rest in the next attempt? MS Windows will update the OS with whatever patches downloaded without waiting for the rest if I prematurely shutdown the pc.

Ubuntu :: Slow Run From USB / Speed It Up?

May 20, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 from a USB key (16GB). Overall I'm pretty fine with it but there are a few problems I am having. It seems to be very slow. In particular, Firefox and Pidgin freeze every now and then, before becoming active again. The same thing also happens for other applications such as Rhythmbox, Gedit, and the terminal. Additionally my start up and shut down times are horrible (worse than when I use Vista and Ubuntu 8.04). I was wondering if there is something with my install or if this is all due to the fact that I am running from a USB. I don't think it's the USB since I ran 8.04 from a USB HDD (55GB) and didn't have any problems with speed.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Running Slow / Speed It Up?

Feb 25, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10, replacing Windows 7.

its running a little slower than I hoped it would, loading movies takes a while, and when i switch to full screen, it takes about 5 seconds to catch up.

im suspicious that my video card driver might not be configured correctly. can anyone tell me what I might need to configure to get things running smoother?

other things on the computer are also running slow, like opening Firefox, it takes a while for the window to appear.

- Athlon 64 x2 5200+
- Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2h motherboard
- Radeon HD 3650 512mb pci-e
- 4gb DDR2 800

Ubuntu One :: Very Slow Upload / Speed It Up?

Apr 25, 2010

I have been trying out Ubuntu One for the past couple of days but find it to be incredibly slow. At first i had put a folder will a large amount of images in the ubuntu one folder. The total size of it was 35Mb, after over 26 hours only 11,5Mb of that had been uploaded.

After looking around some on these forums i saw several comments about it being slow when it is a large amount of files, no matter if the filesize is small or large. I decided to try it out with a larger single file. I erased everything that was in the previous share and then put my testfile of 350Mb in the Ubuntu One folder.

After two hours of waiting i could still not see it on the U1 website so i decided to see how long it would take with dropbox and put a copy of that file in my dropbox folder as well. The file was uploaded correctly to dropbox in just a couple of minutes but it has still not been uploaded to the U1 website even though it has been 4-5 hours since i first put it in my U1 folder.

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Slow In Terms Of Speed / Performance

Jun 30, 2011

I'm new to openSUSE and my computer is quite slow although my computer isn't that bad. I opened up ksysguard and it appears that my CPU is the bottleneck. My CPU usage is usually 100%, then after a few seconds, it goes down to 20-60% and then it goes back up to 100% after another few seconds. It says I have 141 processes running (I don't know if that's normal or not).

My Specs are:
CPU: AMD Duron (tm) processor 1.8GHz
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6200
Memory: 2GB RAM

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Slow USB Transfer Speed ?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm trying to transfer some files to my USB stick, and it's transferring at the most pitiful rate, around 200-400kb/s, occasionally shooting up to 1MB/s, but not for more than a few seconds.

I realize a lot of factors can play into this, so I'll try to provide as much detail as I can.

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.3, KDE 4.6 RC2, and a Corsair Mini Voyager 16GB. My motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-DS3L.

dmesg output:

Code:

lsusb -t output:

Code:

Sometimes too, the transfer just stops all together. It just... doesn't transfer for a while, then it'll go back to 400kb/s etc, then it'll stop again for a minute.
