Ubuntu :: Computer Running Slow With All Versions Of Kubuntu

Feb 24, 2010

My friends computer is extremely slow with all versions of kubuntu. Its very slow to boot, very slow to load applicatons, very slow to switch between windows, very slow to do anything. I can't think of what would be causing the slowness, its not new, doesn't have any fancy hardware AFAIK, but it runs XP perfectly well, its probably a 2.0+ghz pentium 4 processor. Do you think it could be a kernel chipset issue? Or perhaps a graphics driver/window manager issue? I don't know what the hardware is, is there a command I can run to list all the hardware?

Ubuntu :: Computer Is Running Really Slow And Screen Fades In And Out

Apr 11, 2010

I am running into a problem with my cpu using a lot of usage with no applications running other than firefox, one window... then the screen would dim as if it is going to screen saver mode, which is not set to do that after 473 minutes of being idle...because I watch full length movies... so if anybody knows about this please let me know, i dont know if I have a virus, but maybe xscreensaver is conflicting with Gnome screensaver builds or something.

Ubuntu :: Computer Wouldn't Mount NTFS Drives Anymore

Jul 27, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 on my computer. This also the first time I'm working with a linux distribution, so I'm sorry if I don't understand everything.Yesterday Ubuntu was running perfectly. Today I tried to install nvidia driver, and after that I started rythmbox. That was the moment I noticed my computer wouldn't mount NTFS drives anymore. What is weird cause yesterday it did mount them, and I didn't change anything (atleast I think I don't). The exact error Message is:Unable to mount location

So I searched the internet and they said to other people they should check System>Administration>Users and groups.So I did check it and it said account type: custom, when I clicked on the button change, which was next to it, It didn't do a thing.

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu Installer Running Slow?

Mar 14, 2010

I was messing around couple linux distros and a desktop earlier today. When I booted from the Ubuntu disk, it seemed to take like 2-5 minutes on each screen. So was basically taking like 10 minutes before I even got to the disk's menu. When i booted the machine off of openSUSE 11.2 disk it booted nice and fast, then installed without a hitch.When i put the Ubuntu disk into my laptop it booted fast and fine there.I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas why that desktop would seem to disagree with a bootable Ubuntu disk like that. Those things are obviously designed to work with near anything. It's a standard IDE CD-ROM, 7600GT, IDE hard drive, all pretty standard stuff.

Debian :: New Install Running Slow - System Freezes Every 30 Seconds Or So

Sep 26, 2015

So i just finally installed Debian Jessie OS, replacing Ubuntu. But now it is running extremely slow. It's not internet connection. The internet speed is running fine (Videos load quickly), but it's like the system freezes every 30 seconds or so. A video can be fully loaded but still stops and starts constantly. Just browsing the internet, or non-internet things do the same also. I switched back to Ubuntu to see if it was different on there, but Ubuntu is running fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Running Slow / Freezes And Icons Disappears

Jul 8, 2010

I'm really new to opensuse, and linux in general. I started using 11.2 in may and I'm still having trouble. I started it on a newly refurbished HP Pavillion. It's always seemed to run slow, freezes up when I plug in my external hard drive, won't play music on amarok or it will lag, things like that. When I run it in windows everything works fine. and it has always ran really hot and loud when in opensuse.

To make things worse, lately if I open mozilla, all the programs/windows I have open will disappear, all my tabs will disappear, all the icons on my desktop disappear and my application launcher, clock, etc, all disappear. when i manually shut it down and restart it works fine for a while. I keep trying to find things online but I've got to the point where I'm afraid to mess it up more.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Install Of Natty Running Unusually Slow?

May 31, 2011

After doing a wubi install of 11.04 onto my hp g56-116a because of it having all 4 primary partitions in use, natty seems to be running abnormally slow Not throughout, but there's major slowdowns when doing something like opening a new browser window or similar task.

Sometimes it will just spontaneously log out. The slowdowns are so bad the mouse cursor will become completely unresponsive/laggy for 20-25 seconds. My laptop has 4GB RAM and an intel celeron t3500 cpu, which zips windows 7 along speedily, but its running this install a lot slower than my old laptop ran in,with 2GB RAM and a slightly slower processor.

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Boot \ Opened The Screen But The Login Screen Wouldn't Appear?

Oct 1, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04.1 and I run it 24 hours a day. Recently one morning I went to my laptop and opened the screen but the login screen wouldn't appear. Anytime the cursor appeared, HDD activity would go to 100%. I'm assuming this because the HDD light on my laptop was permanently on. So I made the dumb decision of just holding the power button down and turning it off. When I turned it back on, I noticed it came to a command prompt type screen listing "initramfs" at the bottom apparently wanting me to input a command. I did a lot of research and couldn't find much of anything that would help me. I read about GRUB, superblocks, fsck, e2fsck, etc.. . I tried all of those and nothing has worked so far. Any ideas? I did notice one thing. When I went into the actual install with the livecd, it told me the drive was /dev/sda5, but in Disk Utility on the livecd, it told me it was /dev/sda1

Fedora :: Slow Printing Through Networked Printers Running FC11

Dec 23, 2009

I have recently replaced an older server with a new Intel Xeon quad-core processor. The old machine was running FC6, the new machine is running FC11 64Bit. The problem that I am having is that printing to networked printers prints 2-3 pages, then waits 8-10 seconds and then prints 2-3 more pages. This repeats until the printout is completed. My first thought is that FC11 (or somewhere between FC6 and FC11) introduced some way to limit activity to devices? The confusing thing to me is that I went from a single CPU to a quad core machine, increased the memory from 1Gb to 3Gb, moved from a 32 bit machine to a 64 bit machine and I am running the same applications... they just run slower now...

Fedora :: Why Having ALOT Of Ram Is Useful For Having Computer Running Smoothly

Feb 3, 2010

I was doing some research on SSDs in wikipedia. Then it was showing me links to like DRAM and SRAM. Then there was RAM which I was familiar with. Anyways down to the point.The way your computer works is. When you start up your computer. Whatever is read on the hardrive is put on your RAM memory right.? For temporary and when you start applications. It is put in your RAM from your drive to run faster. This is why having ALOT of ram is useful for having your computer running smoothly. Right?

Fedora :: See On Computer Screen That Fsck Is Running?

Sep 4, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu for a couple of years, and I had some problems that nobody could fix, so I thought I would try Fedora.

If I want to automatically fix errors in Fedora (or Ubuntu) on the next boot the normal method is to type [code] sudo touch /forcefsck at a terminal prompt. In Ubuntu after I boot it up I can see on my computer screen that fsck is running, but with Fedora there is no indication on the screen that fsck is running.

Since I can't see it, how do I know that Fedora is actually running fsck?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fglrx Turning Vlc Into A Snail?

May 28, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit version and everything worked fine so far except for the fglrx driver as it seems. I wasn't able to enable desktop effects and couldn't start games like openarena or nexuiz.

Therefore, I installed the fglrx driver from ATI's site and got everything working fine. Unfortunately it introduced a problem with vlc and the window manager in general. If I go into fullscreen in vlc it takes at least 2 seconds until the screen reacts. Also, if I tab through windows there is at least a second delay which is all very very annoying. I removed the driver again and re-installed fglrx from the repos. I now have two entries for the Catalyst Control Center (normal + administrative) under System->Prefrences which is annoying but not the reason for this thread.

The main problem remains the delay with window tabbing (with desktop effects disabled) and vlc going into fullscreen (this also applies for ..... videos which also lag in fullscreen mode).

The card is a Radeon HD 4830, processor is an AMD Phenom II X4 810.

Dec 21, 2010

trying to install sunray server 5.0 which claims to support RHEL 5.3 or greater, but I can't even manage to get the utinstall to find the jre, which is installed. java -version is fine, which java, is fine. I've tried a zillion paths. Does java perhaps have to be in a specific location? Wouldn't the path to the jre normally be the ~/jre/bin the utinstall looks like: Enter Java v1.6 (or later) location [/usr/java]: No JRE found at /usr/java

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Install On USB Hard Drive - Wouldn't Restart

Apr 26, 2011

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 onto my external hard drive yesterday for use in an dead laptop. Hard drive on the laptop is dead and has no operating system. Downloaded the iso for 10.10, as well as the Universal USB Installer. Everything went well, and Ubuntu started up and loaded onto the laptop. I was so thrilled to have my old laptop working again! (it's much better than the netbook I'm on right now)

Restarted Ubuntu after creating a partition on my external hard drive, and it wouldn't restart. So, I went back to my netbook and reformatted the hard drive to factory specs, and started the process over again. Now, when I try to boot the old laptop from the hard drive I get a message that says, "Multiple Active Partitions" and it won't boot from the external hard drive.

Fedora :: Forced Kernel Removal - Wouldn't Boot

Sep 5, 2010

When I was installing the last kernel update, the system informed me that I had to remove the kernel that was 2 back. The new kernel wouldn't boot and I reported the bug via bugzilla. I got a response within a day that a new kernel had been posted on koji and I was aked to try and see if it resolved my problem. When I installed it I was again forced to remove the kernel that was 2 back. This left me with only 1 known working kernel and if this new one hadn't worked, another attempt would have put me out of business.

What enforces this apparent rule of only 3 kernels. I upgraded from F10 to F13. F10 would let me keep as many kernels as I wanted and I could clean up old ones when appropriate. How can I disable this? I really need to be able to keep several kernels on the system at any given time.

Fedora :: Images Wouldn't Render After Import And Related Software

Apr 3, 2010

My goal is to import and organize photos from my SD Card I have a built in SD Card Reader on my Toshiba Satellite A205 with Fedora 12 installed

1st: I tried to just use gThumb but some of the images wouldn't render after import. - Also at this point, I selected for Fedora to automatically open gThumb Import when I enter the SD Card. Now I can't figure out how to stop it from doing that. If anyone could answer this too, i would be very grateful

2nd: I tried f-spot but it also wouldn't render some of the images after import and I don't like that it orders the photos by day and doesn't let you manage it yourself. Correct me if I'm wrong with this.

Now: I loved Picasa on Windows so I loaded the Picasa 3.0 RPM. I had an apparently common problem with the Wine preloader being blocked by SELinux. I followed the SELinux recommendation to lift the restriction. I realize its not as safe but I thought if I could get Picasa to work I could live with it. But I can't seem to import from Picasa either! When I start an import from Picasa it gets about 20 pictures though and then stops with the following error:

Code: An error has ocurred during importing. Either the source is unavailable or the destination is full or readonly. (11) And also the gThumb import window opens... actually as I'm writing this, it probably is the auto action i set up earlier that's throwing it off. That would probably make the "source unavailable" like the error implies.

I would like to remove the auto load behavior i set up when entering an sd card. If anyone has any other ideas why I can't view all of the images in the other programs i'd like to give them a fair evaluation also. A few of them render ok, but most of them just show a broken image link.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dvd Reset - Update Wouldn't Work - MSwindows In The Grub Boot Menu Disappeared

May 28, 2010

I have a dual boot system: windows xp and suse(10.2). I had to reinstall windows(again). When I tried to use the installer, it kept reseting my partitions to 500gb+ to linux. Nothing I tried would let me put it to the way it was(50gb to linux). Repair install failed. Update wouldn't work. MSwindows in the grub boot menu disappeared. I tried reinstalling suse. The installer blocked any attempt by me to put the partitions back to normal. How do reset the windows and linux partitions(850gb windows, 50gb to suse linux)?
