Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Graphics And Random Poor 3d Performance - Sometimes Its Okay Sometimes No

Apr 16, 2010

I am running kubuntu 9.10 on a dell inspiron 14 with an intel GM45 graphics card. When I run 3d games like Nexuiz, openarena and tremulous I get really random performance. Sometimes things are totally playable with somewhere between 50-80 fps and other times I get maybe 4 fps and everything takes forever to load. These effects persists between logouts, X restarts and reboots! I get no errors when I run things in console either.I never really play games much but when something doesn't work...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Intel HD Graphics (Intel Core I3) With Suse 11.3 - Poor Resolution

Jan 2, 2011

I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 2.6.34.7-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :

Code:

Hardware :: Poor Graphics Performance With 64 MB Card / What To Do?

May 4, 2010

I have an ATI RADEON 7000 (taken from lspci) 64 MB graphics card. My computer has a 700 MHz Celeron CPU and 650 MB RAM with Ubuntu 10.04. Anything graphical is slow. I cannot even play basic games like SuperTux. I think it is a graphics driver problem. Will this card ever work well with Linux, what do I need to do?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Poor Performance For X264 - Video Is All Jerky In VLC ?

Jan 25, 2010

So for the last, oh, three or four hours now, I've been trying to get videos to play properly in Ubuntu. I have the default player, I have vlc, I (apparently) installed mplayer, but it won't play anything at all.

I was having horrible screen tearing with standard definition .avi's in vlc, fixed that by setting vsync in catalyst control center to always on or whatever it is.

Now, I have tried to run a 720p x264 video. It PLAYS, but not well. Audio is fine, however video is all jerky in VLC, and in Totem it's just a mess of screen tearing (although the video does no jerk on that player).

I have just spent HOURS trying to get VIDEOS TO PLAY. This makes no sense. Playing a video should be the simplest thing in the world for any OS to do, but with Ubuntu it is like pulling teeth. I have NEVER been so frustrated while using a computer. What is going on here?

BTW, I installed every single thing needed to use mplayer but it still does not work. The player comes up but will not play any type of file.

My system specs:
2.2Ghz dual core (intel)
3gb ram
1GB radeon hd 4650 vid card
asus ipibl-lb mobo

I was really enjoying Ubuntu until I got around to trying to watch some videos. Now I am maybe minutes away from going back to vista. At least on there I can watch full 1080p videos if I want with no problems.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Better Performance From Intel 945GM?

Mar 24, 2011

Is there anything I can do in Ubuntu 11.04 to get the Intel 945GM to work more stable and run faster? It won't load the Unity interface at ALL. It won't load the Classic Desktop unless I use the one without effects, or else the title bars disappear. Is there something I can do to make it more stable, and run more efficiently?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choosing A Graphics Card - Price Vs Performance?

Mar 11, 2011

i have an ati radeon x1550 (pretty old, i know) graphics card which worked perfectly under windows 7. i recently read that ati appears to have dropped support for this card installed on recent ubuntu distributions (i'm using ubuntu 10.10 + kde 4.6.1) the thing is, when i'm watching something on videos or playing a movie through vlc, the image looks jittery (random horizontal lines that break the image, it's pretty subtle but it's there...) i'm new to ubuntu (switched from windows 7 a couple of months ago) and what i'm looking for is one of two:

-either a solution to my drivers problem so i can use this card with full 2d and 3d support (like i used to in windows) or, a recommendation of which graphic card i should switch to (my motherboard has a 'pci express x16' slot). i've searched countless forums and sites but i can't reach a final conclusion: am i supposed to have good 2d and 3d acceleration with this card (with the right drivers installed)?

if the answer is 'no', then i'd like to know what i should buy. for what i've read, apparently i should stay away from ati and intel and look for nvidia. i'm not a gamer so i really don't need an incredible 3d acceleration (although some would be nice, just in case) what i really need is for my system to be snappy (i work with my computer) and most of all good support for multimedia apps (i would like to be able to use xbmc smoothly for instance) i'd like to know which is the cheapest graphics card that i can get that will meet my needs (the ones i just listed above)

Ubuntu :: 8.10 - IBM ThinkPad R32 Poor Performance

Feb 8, 2010

i'm trying to run ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex on an old hand-me-down laptop that i got from a family member, and i've noticed that the performance is actually much worse than it was on windows xp professional (32-bit).

first of all let me give you my specs:
ibm thinkpad r32
intel mobile pentium 4-m 2.0 ghz
ati radeon mobility m6 (i think this is actually the mobility radeon 7000 igp) with 16mb ram
256 mb ram (pc-2100)

i understand that these are very low performance specs, but it feels like the computer is running very sluggishly even for those specs. the computer ran just fine in windows xp, but is extremely sluggish in ubuntu. it seems like it detected all the hardware just fine, but i feel like it may not be utilizing the cpu and/or video to the extent that it should be. a couple of places where it really seems to struggle is when first opening new programs, viewing flash intensive web 2.0 type webpages (i.e. videos), and listening to music/podcasts (with rhythmbox).

it seems like rhythmbox really kills my performance more than anything else, but the performance is poor all around compared to xp, and i feel like that shouldn't be the case. like i said, i understand that the specs are poor, but it feels like it's not even living up to those specs. i know that 8.10 is old and outdated now, but it's what i had laying around and i figured that it might perform better on this old deprecated laptop than 9.10 would anyway. am i wrong in this assumption? would 9.10 perform better for me?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic UNR & Intel 945GME Video Performance - Dismally Choppy

Jan 10, 2010

having not experienced the issues with jaunty and intel display cards, i can't say whether this is a real problem or not. from what i can tell, mtrr is not a problem.

on my new dell mini 10v w/ intel 945gme and a fresh install of karmic unr, video playback performance is only so-so.

most videos-style flash video is decent. local h.264 playback from .m4v and .mov containers is flawless. but streaming flash video originating as h.264 is dismally choppy - this includes vimeo and hulu-quality streaming video.

Ubuntu :: Poor Performance On Pentium 4 Machine?

Aug 4, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop that was given to me. It is having a lot of lag issues,especially when playing videos and visiting websites using flash. It's an Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz machine. I think that it should perform better because I had used and AMD Sempron 2.0GHz machine with Ubuntu before and video playback was much better than this. I'm thinking that my problem is the graphics card driver. Here is the card that this machine has:

Code:
:~$ lspci | grep Radeon
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M
The AMD machine was using a VIA graphics chipset.

I used the command "Xorg -configure" to create a xorg.conf file, hoping that might help. But it didn't. Here it is:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

[Code]...

Is there any tweaking that I can do in the xorg.conf that might help? I don't know which of those options I should set. I also tried changing the driver to "ati" but that did nothing. found some info for settings with "man radeon", I'm going to try some of those out.

Ubuntu :: Poor Desktop Performance With NVidia And Four Monitors?

Dec 20, 2010

I experience very poor desktop performance on my system. General clicking responsiveness is poor, taking over second or two to focus to a new window, move windows around, ... etc. The Xorg process constantly uses over 60% of the CPU even when I'm doing nothing, and when I do click around it will quickly go up near 100% usage. Performance is initially OK when I first launch into my Gnome environment, but it soon deteriorates within 30 minutes or so. Eventually, after days of being up and running, my desktop will crash.I am running Ubuntu 10.10 with latest upgrades. I have four monitors attached to my "nVidia Corporation G98 [Quadro NVS 420]" graphics card. I am running the "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current)" recommended in the Ubuntu "Additional Drivers" app. I get a fair number (hundreds) of these in my /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code:

[862923.098] (WW) NVIDIA(2): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ba04, 0x0000ba14)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(3): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ac44, 0x0000ac54)
[862923.099] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000fca0, 0x0000fcb0)

[code]....

though they don't appear constantly while my desktop is running (I assume they may come in batches?). Not sure if they're relevant. A separate issue, though possibly related, is the SpeedCrunch app (a desktop calculator) is guaranteed to crash my desktop as soon as it gets focus. Here's the relevant output of "lspci -v" which shows my graphics card:

Code:

03:00.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation NF200 PCIe 2.0 switch for Quadro Plex S4 / Tesla S870 / Tesla S1070 / Tesla S2050 (rev a3) (prog-if 00 [Normal decode])

CentOS 5 :: Poor Mdraid Performance On DL160 G6?

Ubuntu Networking :: Very Poor Wireless Performance - Packet Loss

Aug 5, 2011

I have ubuntu lucid running on Dell 230 PC, linksys WPN600 N wireless PCI network card connecting to a Cisco E3000 dual channel router.

Kernel: 2.6.32-33-generic
Installed Ralink driver v2.4.0.0

iwconfig shows that the bit rate is 130Mb/s and link quality is 98/100. I'm using the wcid network manager instead of defaul gnome one. I'm getting lots of packet loss and performance is very bad. The connection is practically unusable. I've tried installing the compat wireless backport package but that did not work at all.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Poor Network Performance On New Server?

Jan 29, 2009

ok, we had to move one of our databases due to failing hardware. This box is newer than the old but it's just dog slow. 1st I thought it was mysql but now I am realizing it's the network. As a test, I tried copying a remote file to that box and the old server (located at the same co-lo, same provider), same switch, etc.Here are the results;

Old server:
access_log.1 100% 4192KB 1.4MB/s 00:03

New Server:
access_log.1 100% 4192KB 72.3KB/s 00:58

So now I see why people were complaining about webpage load times, etc. I can't figure out why the network latency. I looked around a bit, see below for some things, I thought mtu, nic speed, etc.

mii-tool shows;
eth0: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok
eth1: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok[code].....

Are there other things I can type to test or provide more feedback somehow to get more information.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Poor I/O Performance On IDE/SATA Disks?

Jan 13, 2010

I've just removed fedora 10 and installed CentOS 5.4 both x86_56 on my Lenovo ThinkCentre 9091-CTO workstation, and observed serious performance degradation while intensive I/O operations and huge load without significant CPU consumption in user mode with about 50% in I/o wait.For example if I do the "tar xjvf some_large_tar.bz" file and run vmstat i get the output below. This is the only cpu and io intensive process running. The load gets up to 6 on C2D CPU and the machine has unacceptable responsivness.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Intel Graphics Card Working G31 / 33

Oct 21, 2010

Just spent about 4 hours upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 thinking it would fix my graphics problems. Basically I have no 3d acceleration of any kind, is there any way i can load the intel drivers? Because what I'm using now is really crappy.

Can i just change something in my xorg to intel and it will load that driver ? I've tried the "hardware drivers" thing but it does not show anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Boot With Intel Graphics Without Monitor Switched On?

May 12, 2010

i'm trying since ubuntu karmic to set up a xorg.conf for a special purpose. I've a htpc connected to my tv. Intel GMA 4500, DVI->HDMI-cable connected, Lucid Lynx installed. When the machine boots with the TV powered on, everything is perfect. xrandr reports all valid modes on output "DP2". Without the TV powerd on, Lucid starts in the low graphics mode, with the funny zenity-message. So far, i managed to disable all useless outputs (VGA1, HDMI1, DP1, HDMI2), leaving DP2 enabled. I managed this by assigning outputs to monitors and adding Option "Ignore" "True" to the corresponding monitor-sections. My only remaining problem is, that the intel-driver reports no connected monitor on output DP2. The TV is connected, but shut off. Has anyone got a hint to tell the driver to ignore the presence of a monitor?

Debian Hardware :: Poor 2d Performance Lenny Radeon 9600 Firmware?

Jun 15, 2010

i had recently loaded squeeze and had an issue with the 2d performance.i.e when being prompted for the root password, the shading slowly draws down the screen several times before stopping at the final darker shade. i then added the linux-firmware-nonfree package. all worked extremely well, even compiz, but i don't really care about compiz. i just loaded it to see how it performed. i then distro-hopped a bit and when i came back to squeeze the first thing i did was add the package, but the video is acting like i haven't added the package. i've searched for an answer, but have not found anything recent to indicate if xorg was upgraded or what.stable lenny works fine, but i'd rather have the nice console fonts when not in x and more up to date apps like gimp and xsane in squeeze.

However, when I try to fullscreen a stream on justin.tv or a ..... video, it instantly becomes choppy and video is extremely delayed in relation to the sound. The sound still continues at it's regular pace, however the video lags behind and is just choppy in general.Also, not sure if this helps, but i'm running an i3 2310M.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Installs Works Fine, But XP Has No Network - No Sound - Poor Graphics

Feb 25, 2010

I've just installed Karmic 9.10 to a new 500GB sata in a friends PC and it boots and runs fine; internet and everything just works. Just reinstalled XP-SP3 to old 80GB pata drive in same PC, it boots ok, but has no sound, poor graphics and network is limited to 1394 - no ethernet.

I built this PC about 3 years ago and it had been running XP with SP2 then SP3 installed, and everything worked fine. So over the past day I have installed XP-SP3 (slipstreamed disc) in it 3 times now, then went back and tried XP-SP2 (earlier slipstreamed disc) twice with same result - no ethernet, poor graphics, no sound?

But it all works fine in Karmic?

I ran Karmic's disk utilities (Palimsest) on the old 80GB and it tested fine, no problems at all.

PC comprises Gigabyte M55plus-S3G m/board, AMD 3800+ 2.4Ghz CPU, 1 GB RAM and a 64MB NVidia graphics card (can't recall model)

Is it possible MS built 'crippleware' in to XP, or could there be a hardware problem that Karmic didn't detect (doubt it)

Karmic is going to be the main OS now, so I don't think the loss of XP is a problem, but friend still wanted to be able to boot XP, even though XP is installed in Virtualbox in Karmic (I did this by importing a previously saved XP 'appliance').

OpenSUSE :: Poor Graphics Quality Of Applets With Firefox / Icedtea Under Suse 11.3

The old system was using, I guess, something called libjavaplugin_oji.Is this a known problem with IcedTea and is there a recommended replacenent ?
