Fedora X86/64bit :: Slow Internet On X64 FC12 System / Speed It Up?
Jan 11, 2010
Does any one have a way to speed up the internet on Fedora 12? I have a dual boot system with Vista x64 on the flip-side, and my wireless connection there is just fine. But when I get on this side, it goes back to the dial-up days (yes I said the DU word). yum updates seem to be just fine, and e-mail seems to be fine. just firefox is slow. And now that I put the x64 Flash in (thanks to leigh123linux), with that working too it seems even a little slower again.
I have installed Fedora Core 12 and all seems fine. I have also set up the main repositories as was suggested on the following fedora set up guide website: [URL]. I have since tried to update my Fedora release with all the updates available, alas I get the following error message:
Error Type: <class 'yum.Errors.RepoError'> Error Value: Error getting repository data for installed, repository not found File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3125, in <module> main() File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 3122, in main backend.dispatcher(sys.argv[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 710, in dispatcher self.dispatch_command(args, args[1:]) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/packagekit/backend.py, line 657, in dispatch_command self.update_packages(only_trusted, package_ids) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1948, in update_packages signed = self._is_package_repo_signed(pkg) File : /usr/share/PackageKit/helpers/yum/yumBackend.py, line 1437, in _is_package_repo_signed repo = self.yumbase.repos.getRepo(pkg.repoid) File : /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/repos.py, line 121, in getRepo 'Error getting repository data for $s, repository not found' $ (repoid)
I am having problems with website load speeds. I have fendora 15 and windows loaded on my machine. When I am in windows the internet connection is fine but when I am in fedora everything is slow. I am connecting wirelessly to a netgear router using a D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adapter
I have not installed anything for the wireless card.
I have tested my speeds from here [url] and I know that I am getting around 7000kb down.
I have gone into firefox to about:config and set network.dns.disableIPv6 to true... but everything is slow.
Can't use Internet all of a sudden. Same IP address, Gateway, etc... as Windows.
Linux --> Can't use Internet Windows --> Internet OK?!
The Gateway disappears on its own. The IP address and everything else automatically resets to a blank and doesn't save my settings even though I clicked it to save. Restarting the computer doesn't help either.
I have the following nasty issue:I am using fedora 12 and I use vpn for working remote.When I browse the internet the speed is very slow!even when I do a yum update it downloads the packages with max 100kb. if I drop the vpn connection I download the packages with 1Mbdo you know what the problem could be? i created the vpn connection using the network manager...it is a regular pptp connection for the vpn!
My Sempron LE-1100 home server (1GB RAM) has run CentOS 5 32-bit happily for years, but I decided to replace its two Seagate 250GB drives (RAID1) with two WD 500GB black drives (RAID1). I decided to do a fresh install and used CentOS 5.5 64-bit this time. Since switching to the 64-bit OS with the new drives, my transfer speed across the LAN has dropped from a reliable 45MB/s to only 18MB/s from other machines to the server, and to 27MB/s from the server to other machines on the LAN. I use gFTP or WinSCP for these transfers (in FTP mode). Prior to installing the new WD drives, I ran the long WD tests on them and they passed, so I don't believe the drives are faulty. I suspect it's more to do with me switching CentOS from i386 to x86_64.
I've got two questions: 1. Is the 64-bit version of CentOS appropriate for a Sempron LE-1100 with 1GB ram, or should I switch back to the i386 version? 2. Is there a reason why switching to the 64-bit OS would negatively impact on transfer speeds? I doubt the new HDDs are faulty...I was expecting them to be faster. 3. Is there anything I can try to improve transfer speeds across the LAN? According to PHPSysInfo, the network card is "Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation MCP67 Ethernet".
When using launchpad and the ubuntu daily build website it is very slow. I get 1.2mb/s normally and the speed drops quickly to 0kb/s This is the case from any version of ubuntu that is installed on my laptop.In windows it is no problem, equally there is no problem from a live cd or an install on my external hard disk. Is canonical blacklisting/slow listing my ip?
I am behind a university network but am sure this problem occurs at home .I did a clean install and had no problem until about an hour ago. When I tried to re download a project using bzr my speed instantly ropped.I had downloaded it fine a couple of hours ago. I hope that someone can shine some light on this, its very hard to work on projects if I can't download them.
I have been having come problem, my surfing speed has gone to zero. I can download at full speed but surfing is crawl speed or just timing out. I am pretty sure it's because firefox is clogged, I just want to know is there a way to clear the clog w/o losing my settings? I fixed this before by making a new user, but I don't want to loose all my saved form's and bookmarks.
I replaced only my mainbord and cpu and Ubuntu 9.10 boot just fine. The only issue that I have is that my connection speed dropped from 10Mb to 3Mb. I try the connection on my laptop and it is fine 10Mb, so the problem is with the PC. What else to try before reinstall Ubuntu as a final step?
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.
I'm running 11.04. I have brought a new WiFi adapter, ralink rt2070. When I browse the internet, it takes a long time to load a webpage. When I download updates, it goes at 3,060 BYTES a second. Is there any solution? I'm using the default rt2800usb driver.
i have a zenda w322u usb wireless adapter that gives a good connection to wireless router but seems to give very poor download performance compared to my laptop. Are there settings that i can access for this adapter to improve its performance.
I have recently switched to Ubuntu 11.04 64bit from Windows 7. Since installing 11.07 I have experienced random disconnects, slow speeds and just overall poor performance from my ethernet card. Looking into the issue further I noticed that the driver installed for my NIC is "driver=r8169", but the actual NIC card is "product: RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller" which I think pretty much says I should be running the 8168 driver.
When I run lsmod I only see "r8169 " installed. How do I go about getting and installing the r8168 driver? I am pretty sure I just need to install this driver and then blacklist the r8169 in blacklist.conf. Any clarification would be great.
I have an issue with kernel-126.96.36.199-174.fc12.x86_64. I ran the updates on Christmas Eve and it updated from kernel-188.8.131.52-166.fc12.x86_64 to kernel-184.108.40.206-174.fc12.x86_64. When I rebooted, I no longer received the Fedora Bubble boot screen. It comes up with the Fedora boot bar (across the bottom). Also, I receive failures during boot with the following:
I just installed the Fedora 12 live CD, but the driver for my EnGenius EUB 9801 (rt2870) USB WiFi adapter is not installed. I tried some of the suggestions found on this forum, but since I'm new at Linux I haven't yet been successful with installing the driver.
Does anyone know if the much larger DVD ISO already contains the driver built-in for the rt2870 for Fedora? If so I'm thinking it would be easier (for me) to just download the DVD ISO and re-install FC12 using that to get my WiFi USB adapter working.
I have recently installed FC12 64 bit. I have been using Fedora now since I first installed FC9 a few years back.
My main problem is that I am unable to execute any files at all using the ./filename command. I spent last night trying to run the ipod bootloader and all I kept on getting was the message: unable to run binary file. I used the command chmod +x ipodpatcher before attempting to run it, but with no luck. After a while of frustration and a few suggestions online I booted up my Ubuntu OS and the file ran first time. Am I missing a program on FC12? Do I need to install something else?
I feel it may be simple, however I have never experienced this problem before using Fedora. Any suggestions?
I have configured the Adobe repos and when I try to install Adobe Reader, yum gives me the following error:
Code: Transaction Check Error: package nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc12.x86_64 (which is newer than nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-17.fc13.i686) is already installed I tried --skipbroken as a longshot to no avail. Obviously if I try to remove nss-softokn-freebl it tries to remove all of Fedora , looked in Koji but there is nothing in there either.
A package nss >= 3.12.8 is not available. But it is needed by thunderbird update in the course of "yum update". yum exits with RC 1.Is "--skip-broken" the right way to exclude the thunderbird update ("Resolve depsolve problems by removing packages that are causing problems from the transaction")? Or is there a better way to exclude a package? Problem screen output:
---> Package thunderbird.x86_64 0:3.0.10-1.fc12 set to be updated --> Processing Dependency: nss >= 3.12.8 for package: thunderbird-3.0.10-1.fc12.x86_64 --> Finished Dependency Resolution
I have programs that work in FC10 and FC12, but when I run them on FC11, i get behaviour that is very similar to a deadlock. They don't crash or anything. It just seems that all program output stops at one point and never resumes. I am wondering if FC11 has any known threading issues that one may need to know about before trying to use it to run their software from FC10 or FC12. Maybe something in the way that threading is handled differently from FC10 or FC12 that is not necessarily a problem, but just needs to be kept in mind when writing code for FC11.
Just got the latest kernel update 220.127.116.11-162 for fedora 12 64bit and it won't boot on my PC. I just get a black screen with some text that doesn't mean anything to me. Computer is a s775 E7200 with nvidia 730i/9300 integrated graphics. I am NOT using hardware graphics drivers at the moment, having decided to stick with Nouveau drivers for a time. What system log tools do I need to identify the problem?
I am running Ferdora 12 (constantine) 64 with Intel Xeon 3.2GHz processor + 12GB Ram. I am running this machine specifically for number chunching applications but it isnt running as fast as i thought it would! Are there any tips to optimizing the speed of processors in fedora?
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.
I am currently using fedora 12. My question is why is the speed for my yum and rpm are very slow. Something like Flash Player 10 couldn't even load after being installed. If I downloaded the rpm, the speed is like normal but if I yum it. The ESA took like >1,000,000 sec..or whatever..The point is it does seem like something has happened to my yum/rpm function. I can download and surf the web as usual. I just can't get any add-on such as the Flash Player 10. I can only use the basic already provided by Fedora.
I tried: su - yum clean all rpm --rebuilddb yum update but I am still unsure what type of RPM issue I am facing.
I am experiencing very slow speed with the Intel 5300AGN on a Dell Studio XPS notebook and the iwlagn driver. I'm using Fedora 12 with all the latest updates available. When connecting to a G network with WPA2 security, everything goes fine at "normal" speed. When connecting to a N network with WPA2 security, the download speed falls between 0 k/s and 20 k/s max. The connection speed (as stated by Network Manager and iwconfig) is between 0 kb/s (?) and 11 Mb/s during the same session. I'm can't connect through ssh or download with scp (stalled). Web pages take a lot of time to render.
When connecting to the same N network on Window 7, everything runs fine enough. Every N network I try is the same story. Works fine on windows, badly on F12..
I am having a very weird problem, of which I have never heard before. The problem, shortly (I will give details in the following), is that the copy speed between the partition in which I am running my Fedora and another partition where I store backup data is 50K/s, which is extremely slow (it has been usually around 10M/s, almost 200 times faster).
My laptop is a HP Pavillion Dv7 2080 ep, in which I have two disks of 250G. One of the disks is partitioned between two operational systems, Fedora 14 64 and Windows 7 64, and the other disk contains the above referred partition where I store my backups (lets call it backup disk). The problem happens ONLY when I try to copy anything from my home in Fedora to the backup disk. I first thought it could be a problem in the backup disk. Then I login into the windows and made a copy of some AVI files (3G approx) to the backup disk, which went normally, within a few seconds, thus eliminating this possibility. I try therefore to make the inverse process, a copy from the backup disk into my home folder in Fedora. It went normally, copying 4 G also within few seconds, actually with an excellent speed of 50M/s. After searching in google, I saw some people also complaining of slow copy speed (although they had 7M/s, more than 100 times faster than what I have now), and one cause could be that the source file system (in my case the Fedora home folder) would be near its full capacity. I therefore eliminate everything that I could, around 15G, and now I have like 20G of free disk space, which I think is more than enough for everything. However, the problem persists. Some people also said that it could be the type of files and/or amount of data. I therefore tried several kinds of files (from raw data files to AVI and RMVB regular video files), and several amounts of data (from single files with a few Megas to folders with 20G) and in all cases I had the same unacceptably low copy speed of 50K/s.
It seems to be a problem in the software, caused by the updates, since until 10 days ago it was everything ok. However, I usually make the updates whenever they appear but make my backups much less frequently. Therefore I don't know for sure what has changed in Fedora through the updates since the last backup I made, when everything was working fine.
