Ubuntu :: Desktop Cube In Gnome Classic Terribly Slow

May 30, 2011

today i decided i wanted to use the desktop cube again, so i went through all the compiz settings and got it working in gnome classic. however, when i initiate ratation with the mouse (ctrl>alt>button 1) it is sloooow whenever there is a window open (even just one). rotating away from the workspace with a window does seem to speed up the framerate. when i had maverick 10.10 it was never this slow.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Slow Graphics - OpenGL Does Not Work

Feb 14, 2010

I have installed Suse Linux 11.2 and I had problem with graphics, when I moved windows there were many lines showing, I have installed an original driver for it and now instead of lines moving windows is very slow. When I try to activate compositing with flip with it gives an error and OpenGL does not work. Only XRender works and windows are faster but scrolling is still slow.

Slackware :: OpenGL Shaders Not Supported-widget?

Jan 4, 2010

While I try to add Blue Marble widget I get this error "OpenGL shaders not supported". It's weird considering everything else on kde works great and my laptop configuration is Dell Core2Duo T 6500 2.1Ghz. Should I install any extra packages to make it work?. Also any tips/suggestions/links about improving the look and appearance of Slackware would be most welcome.

Fedora :: Wine/opengl/32 To 64 Bit - Cannot Load OpenGL When Try To Start WoW

Oct 19, 2009

I just upgraded from FC8 (32-bit) to FC11 (64-bit). In doing so, I backed up my entire World of Warcraft folder so I could try to avoid having to download and install it all over again. However, I've now reinstalled wine (64-bit now), and the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repos (also 64-bit), and when I try to start WoW, it says it cannot load OpenGL. I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up, and if there's a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling WoW.

Slackware :: WxGTK Dependency Of OpenGL Not Fulfilled Despite Mesa Installed?

Apr 3, 2010

I am trying to build more packages these days than in years before, it seems, but somehow I manage to run into trouble quite often. This time I want to install Truecrypt 6.3a on my system. According to the description there are two dependencies, one of them being wxGTK.Ok, downloaded wxGTK and tried to build it both with sbopkg and on the CLI just by executing the SBo script. But:

checking for Xinerama... yes
checking for Xxf86vm extension... yes

Slackware :: 13.1 - Xpdf Very Slow And Cpu Goes To 100%

Nov 14, 2010

I'm gonna tell you about slackware installation on my notebook, an acer travelmate 800lci.

On this notebook, I successfully installed (and work with) slackware from version 10.0 till the recent 13.0. Upgrading to a new version till using a new internal hard disk (from 40 GB to 160 GB). After upgrade I fully reinstall slackware 12.2 and then upgrade to 13.0.

Now, I had to use the notebook for testing, so I made a new full installation of slackware 13.0 and after some time a new full installation of slackware 13.1.

On this disk (160 GB P-ATA) I have to pass the following parameter to the kernel:

during installation and boot.

This operation solve the issue that can "see" the full size of the disk (160 GB) and not the 137 GB limit.

Only using slackware 13.1, occur a big (for me) problem.

I can fully reproduce it opening any pdf document with xpdf: moving into document with arrow keys make the cpu goes to 100% and page "fault/s" goes from 30 to 8000 and some times 15000 "fault/s". So, xpdf becomes unusable. This problem reflects in similar manner to other software, like firefox.

Here is my question: what type of analisys could I try to solve/analyze this issue? Maybe the kernel, xorg?

On slackware 13.0 all works perfectly.

Slackware :: Slow DSN Lookup With 64

Sep 7, 2010

I've been comparing the current Slackware 32 bit versus 64 bit, and I've noticed that the 64 bit version is as slow as dialup for domain name lookup.

The 32 bit version is very fast to find websites after a mouse click, whereas the 64 bit version takes forever looking up URLs. (using Firefox)

All the other 64 bit Linuxes seem to be the same way, not just Slackware.

The /etc/resolve.conf file is the same for 32 or 64 bit Slackware, but something is not right. The 32 bit version has a /etc/dhcpc directory, but not the 64 bit version.

Could this be causing the extreme slowdown?

It's really very irritating when the rest of the system is blazing fast.

Slackware :: New 13 X64 Installation - Slow DNS Lookup ?

Mar 31, 2010

I've been cracking on with getting a new Slackware 13 x64 installation going. I've got a problem with browsing the net which I can't put my finger on.

When I try to access a site my machine spends a long time with the "Looking up" message at the bottom. It can take 7-12 seconds before the site is found. Normally I would blame this on my ISP or connection but Mint, Debian and Windows XP aren't having this problem, they just zip straight to the site whether I've been to it before or not.

Is anybody aware of where the problem might be? It's not in the browser either because Opera, Seamonkey and Firefox all have the same problem issue.

Slackware :: PSX Emulator Extremely Slow On 12.2

Aug 3, 2010

I downloaded the emulator called pSX so i can play my playstation cds in my computer. on my laptop i have slackware 12.2 installed.

The dependencies for the emulator are:

I found the appropriate packages for all of these (with the exception of opengl, I assume that means it's preinstalled, correct me if I'm wrong) and installed them. the emulator runs, at about a quarter the speed it's supposed to. I get no error messages in the terminal, just the huge speed drop. has anybody else gotten this emulator to work fine in slackware?

Slackware :: Intel Driver Isn't Being Used And KDE Slow?

Mar 4, 2010

I upgraded to -current last night hoping to improve my Intel 845G graphics controllers functioning in X, I've had to use the vesa driver for stability. The upgrade was completed but KDE seems as slow as ever. Here's some snippets from Xorg.0.log:

X.Org X Server 1.7.5
Release Date: 2010-02-16
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Slackware 13.1 Slackware Linux Project
Current Operating System: Linux speedy 2.6.33-smp #2 SMP Sat Feb 27 20:12:16 CST 2010 i686

It seems I'm still using the vesa driver, any ideas on why the intel isn't being used and how to fix it?

Slackware :: Slow Startup (/etc/rc.d/rc.M) With Wireless?

Jan 19, 2010

My Slack takes some time to boot. It hangs about 5 secs in a line that reads:

/etc/rc.d/rc.M: eth1 information: "MySSID" Then, it polls for a DHCP server on eth1 (I didn't write down the exact message). I noticed that if my router is off, the polling process take quite some time to move on.. I tried to look the rc.M, rc.inet1 and rc.wireless scripts, but I couldn't pin point what to change... I tought of adding an '&' at the end of the command that issues the line I quoted and on the DHCP. The DHCP line I didn't search much, I'll try it later...

Networking :: Internet Is Very Slow With Slackware 13 Router

May 16, 2011

I just installed and configured Slackware on an old computer I am using as a router.

The internet works fine on the slackware box (router) but all of the computers behind it are having issues. When browsing, some websites work perfectly fine, while others are slow to load, and a few don't load at all. I'm not really sure where to start on diagnosing this, so any help would be appreciated.

Also whenever I restart the computer, I have to use this command before the DHCP server will start. What do I have to do to get it to start up with the computer?

Networking :: New Slackware 13 Install - Slow Internet?

Jan 24, 2010

After installing Slackware 13 and configuring it as a router, I'm getting very slow internet speeds on my clients. It takes forever to connect to a website or downloading 100mb bin file also takes forever. On the Slackware box the speed is fine though. When I boot from my previous Slackware 12 drive, the speed on the clients is ok again.

I have compared config files from my old and new installation and haven't found a difference. from other posts I learnt that disabling IPv6 by adding it to the blacklist could help. But this didn't help me either. I have also compared a traceroute on both installations. This also doesn't show a (big) difference.

The only difference I have found is that in my Slackware 13 setup the following modules are loaded while with my old Slackware 12 lsmod is empty.


The only thing I can think of is a missing option in the kernel. I have used the huge-smp from the Slackware DVD, assuming this would have all the important stuff enabled by default. It this right?

Some additional info:
eth0: nVidia Corporation MCP51 Gb onboard Gb NIC, connected to LAN (static)
eth1: 3COM 3C2000 Gb NIC, connected to cable modem (dhcp)
dhcpd is running to configure clients in the network
arno-firewall installed

Files I have compared with my old (working) system:

Slackware :: Opera 10.60 Very Slow To Start New Links

Jul 8, 2010

I've been using Opera 10.11 on two different computer systems, two different locations (work & home), and two different Slackware versions (13 & 13.1 current). Opera 10.11 runs very quickly on both. After upgrading to Opera 10.60, I now find that linking to new web pages takes 5 to 10 seconds, but returning to a previous page is almost instantaneous.

I've tried installing 10.60 using slackbuilds and Opera's installer - both give the same results. I've since reverted to Opera 10.11. why it is so slow to open web pages? Opera 10.60 for Win7 works great, so what happened to the Linux version?

Slackware :: Slow Dns Resolution With A Netcomm Router?

Jul 26, 2010

i have a nb5plus4w modem/router at home which acts as a dhcp server on my lan. upon connection it instructs the clients to use as a dns server (which is the ip address of the router) and linux machines are happy to use that in /etc/resolv.conf. now the issue is that under these conditions dns resolution is sloooow. there have been some discussions on the net saying that the router is not a 'real' dns server (don't know what that means), but the only way i have been able to get around the issue is to edit /etc/resolv.conf to use my isp's dns servers and then chattr -i the file so that dhcpcd doesn't change it.

this approach works for the desktop and even though it is ugly it's effective. the laptop is a different issue. if i take it out of the house i have to chattr -i and let the new network put it's dns addresses in and then change it all back when i get home so, the question is... can i do something to stop doing chattr and get the dns performance of a windows machine (dns resolution is quick on the windows machines)?

Slackware :: Slow - Every 30 Seconds The Internet Lags

Oct 20, 2010

It seems every 30 seconds the internet lags, after that it is fine for 30 seconds. And this happens continuously. Also it seems when I am on Firefox if I am connected to a website, I can navigate the website with not further trouble. But if I navigate away and try to go back, it takes a while. I didn't update, or upgrade or anything. I am running 13.1 and have been since it came out. This just started with the internet 2 days ago. Also I have a dual boot with Win7 and the internet is fine on Win7.

Slackware :: Wireless Keyboard In KDE Slow To Work

Nov 1, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1 install on a Desktop PC with wireless keyboard and mouse. When I log in it takes a very long time(5 minutes or so) before the keyboard starts working, and f.ex. it's possible to do Alt-F2. The mouse also works slowly in this period, but it is working.

I'm running KDE 4.5.2 on Slackware current, but did have the same problems with the fresh install and KDE4.5.1. When the lag period is over everything is working as normal. I have turned of strigi indexing and could not find anything special when running "ps ax" or "top".

Slackware :: Slow Graphics With 13.37 And Radeon Mobility X1600

May 4, 2011

I've upgraded (reinstalled) from Slackware 13.1 to 13.37 on an old iMac and have problems with slow graphics.
lspci says this about the graphics card:


With Slackware 13.1 I had no KMS enabled and graphics speed was okay. It wasn't very good, but okay for everyday work. Now with 13.37 it's extremely slow. glxgears runs with only around 38 fps, no matter what I do. And every now and then when logging off, I get a black screen and no new kdm-login. But I can ssh into that machine and restart X by issuing 'init 3;init 4'.

KMS is enabled (I've also tried disabling it, but then KDE crashes right after logging in) and it's a fresh installation of 13.37 with a kernel.

What can I do?

I have to admin I don't know this video and X stuff very well and I used to have machines with NVIDIA cards.

If there's anything else than the usual Xorg.0.log needed.

To me the log doesn't look like there's any problem whatsoever:

Slackware :: Slow Terminal History Browse Using Vesafb ?

Jul 10, 2010

I've just installed Slackware 13.1 and am using a VESA framebuffer on a dv5-1251nr HP laptop with standard hardware.

In bash when I browse the command history using the up/down arrow keys the input line changes rather slowly.

For example, when I am on the history command


And the next command I go to is


The terminal input line deletes each character from the beginning and changes something like this:


But going the opposite direction, from




Is instant.

The effect does not happen with VESA turned off. I've used VESA on other computers without this problem.
