Ubuntu :: Persistence In Maverick Flash Install VERY Slow

Jan 15, 2011

I've been butting heads with a problem for about a week now. For a while I've been running a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) off a 4 GB Kingston DataTraveller Flash Drive. Using partimage, I've managed to install this Maverick Ubuntu and load it with Audio Stuff from UbuntuStudio....plus wineasio and some Windohs audio software, then save the images of the partition usb stick (win32 livecd partition and casper-rw persistence partition).I've also done the same thing with a linuxaudio distro called pure:dyne. I restore and use either according to my needs. Obviously 4GB isn't a lot of space....so over the holidays I went out and bought the 8GB version of the DataTraveller. Two weeks later I'm still trying to get things to work right.

The problem is that when I create the casper-rw partition and boot into Ubuntu things slow to a snail's pace. Ubuntu takes over 5 minutes to boot up. Installing anything with Synaptic or whatever takes 5x as long as with the 4GB version of the flash drive. Everything works rather well....although multitasking is laborious, if possible at all. At first I thought it was the usb-key itself. After returning it (twice) I realised this just wasn't the case. 3 different flash drives had performed exactly the same way. Googling around over the last few days I found I'm not the only one to come across this problem...but still no solution.

What makes things weirder is that today I installed pure:dyne on that same stick and it works perfectly...running as smoothly (almost) as from a normal harddrive. Weirder still is the fact that pure:dyne is built from ubuntu itself...the only difference (as far as the whole usb-creation business goes) is that the persistence file/partition is named "live-rw" instead of "casper-rw".

I'd settle for pure:dyne...except it's built on "lucid" not "maverick"....two of my 3 computers have graphics driver issues with pure:dyne and the soundcard support is spotty (which is strange for a distro specialising in audio production) and wine (and therefore vst/i support) is not nearly as good. If anyone has any clue what goes on here I'd be very interested. In the meantime I'll run pure:dyne on the one computer that likes it.

Ubuntu :: VDPAU Slow And Jump In Maverick?

Oct 23, 2010

I recently upgraded to Maverick. I did a clean install on my system. I am running NVIDIA drivers from the X-Swat repo. Whenever I try to play a mkv file using Gnome Mplayer it is very jumpy and laggy. VLC, using it's new hardware acceleration, won't even display video, though it does output the audio. I experienced none of these problems with my 10.04 setup. I am unsure if it is a player bug, a driver bug or something with the VDPAU library itself.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Maverick Slow Boot?

May 26, 2011

I swapped out the hard drive on my laptop for a bigger one and put Kubuntu 10.10 on it back in March. The one big complaint I have is that it has a ridiculously slow boot time in comparison to Ubuntu 10.04. I have since installed most of the Gnome Ubuntu desktop through the repos and switched from kdm to gdm but I still have this relatively long period of blank screen with cursor until it goes straight to the gdm. The plymouth boot screen won't show at all. Is there a relatively simple fix for this?

I should add that I am not interested in updating to Natty. I have a limited bandwith I can use and a lot of accumulated software through the repos that would require several gigabytes of reinstall.

Ubuntu :: Maverick - Sometimes Very Slow - Mouse Lags - Low Cpu Load ?

Nov 10, 2010

Since I upgraded to Maverick, every now and then (maybe once an hour) my system becomes very slow for about half a minute. The mouse cursor reacts only very slowly and also applications freeze for for some time.

This happens without the CPU being on full load or the hard disk being active.

I made a clean ubuntu installation on a new hard drive a week ago, but the problem persists.

I have a Thinkpad R400 with an Intel GMA 4500 graphics card an an Intel T5670 Core 2 Duo processor. I'm running the most up to date stable version of ubuntu. Kernel 2.6.35-22.

I know the description of the problem is very vague, but it's hard to describe it more accurately. I couldn't find anything helpful on google or the forum. If you have any ideas what might cause the problem or which log files might provide useful information, please let me know. Most importantly, the problem did not occur before I upgraded to Maverick.

Debian :: How To Get Persistence - No Grub On Install Drive

Apr 5, 2010

I am using this image of Debian: [URL]. But it doesn't matter what I do I fail to make it persistent.
I have tried this: [URL] But there is no "grub" on my "install" drive, apparently is an outdated notion.
I have tried this: [URL] (with conflicting info regarding the previous link). By booting with a knoppix USB with gparted. Doesn't matter if I leave the NTFS partition unnamed or call it home_rw, I get no persistence, even writing persistent while booting.
I have tried also changing this (while in knoppix): [URL]. Basically adding the word "persistent" after "live" but it does not work. All changes I make disappear. What it the current way of getting persistence with this package?

Ubuntu Networking :: Maverick Wireless RT2800PCI - Keep Getting Disconnected And Loading Websites Is Really Slow

Nov 4, 2010

I just installed 10.10 for netbooks, and apparently it's using the RT2800PCI driver for my wireless NIC in my EeePC 901. That driver is causing havoc with my school network, I keep getting disconnected, and loading websites is really slow.

Now I know that 10.04 uses a different driver RT2860 which seems to work far better on this network.

How to change to the driver from lucid. Or does anyone know of an even better solution? I've heard rumors about something called ndiswrapper...

OpenSUSE Install :: Installed OpenSUSE On Pen Drive Persistence Doesn't Work?

Jun 10, 2010

I successfully installed OpenSUSE on a 4gb pen drive using the instructions contained within this portal. However, for the life of me I can't figure out why the persistent feature doesn't work.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Is Slow With Flash Sites?

Mar 14, 2011

Yesterday I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 . Everything is fresh new but my I can feel some lack of speed in the desktop and sometimes if you look really hard on the monitor you can see that screen is trembling a little bit. Not long before, the system freeze up and I had to manually force reboot.

I think that the root of the evil might be the integrated graphics from Intel Core i5 2500K processor. What's your opinion ?

Whenever I play flash video or a video in VLC the pictures seems "choppy" and slow as if it was laggy. What could be causing this? I am guessing its a video issue? Maybe something todo with refresh rates and stuff like that.

Ubuntu :: Minimizing Disk Access On Slow USB Flash ?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 as a full install from a USB flash drive. In other words, I've installed to the flash stick just as though it were a normal hard drive. This is not a Live USB/Persistent install.

The drive is an off-the shelf 8GB Gigaware stick, and its read/write performance is pretty slow. Any time I do anything that requires disk access, it's very sluggish and tends to hang.

I'm looking for advice on things I could do to minimize the amount of disk-access made in the course of using the system, so that it will feel snappier and more responsive.

Some things I've done already:Installed 'preload', which is a daemon that monitors what programs you use frequently, and pre-loads them into RAM to reduce startup time. Mounted /tmp as a tmpfs (RAM disk) and moved my Firefox and Chrome browser caches into RAM. Set noatime for my root and home partitions.

Should I be trying to disable the filesystem journal as well? I'm less concerned with potentially burning out the flash drive with too many writes than I am with just making the system more responsive and nicer to use.

One other thing I was reading about is the so-called "Laptop Mode" that appears to be kernel settings to allow you to spin down a laptop hard drive: [url]

Obviously a flash drive doesn't spin, but it seems like some of those same techniques could be helpful here. Is there anyone who has experience running Linux in a situation with a very slow hard drive?

The computers I'm using this flash drive with all have between 2 and 8 GB of RAM, so moving more stuff into RAM is unlikely to be an issue.

Ubuntu :: Flash Videos Slow - Gets Choppy When In Full Screen

Mar 24, 2010

Running ubuntu 9.10 on an hp pavilion 2000 laptop, with 2.5GB of ram and a dual core (i think). Works at perfect speed with everything, except when I'm tyring to watch a flash video which slows everything down and gets choppy, especially when in full screen. From looking around online I see some people blaming adobe and some people blaming NVidia drivers. Get the impression the problem is a bit of both.

Funny thing is it worked a lot better with the drivers that installed automatically with the ubuntu install, soon as I put the updated nvidia drivers on it started screwing up. how I go back to those default drivers? Tried unchecking the drivers listed in Hardware Drivers, but when I restarted was stuck in very low resolution, so I'm guessing that's not the same as the drivers used after installing the OS.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Adobe Flash Is Really Slow

Sep 6, 2011

On my office PC with Intel Core i5 x4 / 8GB RAM / Intel's in-CPU video card / Opensuse 11.4 adobe flash is very slow it is impossible to watch fullscreen ..... videos even in 480p. But on my home PC everything is just fine and CPU is AMD Athlon II 645 x3 - it is much slower... video card is ATI 5770 with AMD's proprietary drivers. May be Intel's on-CPU video card is slowing down flash video playback? Or may be i need to install other video drivers?

Software :: Flash Ridiculously Slow In Karmic

Jan 3, 2010

K i've been running Karmic for a month or so, (I recently switched from Mint) and I love it except that anything flash related is terribly slow. I figure it's a Karmic problem since I'm currently looking at another laptop with a slower processor and slower graphics card running windows run the flash approximately a bajillion times faster. I am wondering if it's something do with a driver problem, or configuration, namely "EXA" to "UXA" but when I try to open xorg.conf it's completely blank.

Ubuntu :: Lovinglinux - Portable Version Of Firefox On USB Flash Drive Is Really SLOW

Jul 22, 2010

I have a portable version of Firefox on my USB flash drive. It is really SLOW. I have turned off all of the disk-caching options and have even set it to not remember my history. I only have three addons: NoScript, Adblock+, CS Lite. I could even get rid of CS Lite and manage my cookies totally manually if it means I'll have a faster GUI. Almost every time I interact with Firefox in any way I have to wait a few seconds and I get that damned spinning beach-ball (did I mention it's the OSX version?).

Fedora :: Yum And RPM Slow Speed - Flash Player 10 Not Loading

Dec 10, 2009

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.

Debian Configuration :: Extremely Slow Transfer Rate On Flash Disk ?

Jul 12, 2011

Same computer and flash. Two results on different OS:

Write speed under debian: 0.4 MB/s

Write speed under Windows: 6.6 MB/s

From what i've been reading on the net I guess it's something to do with the mount - sync option.

I've notice that there are couple of workarounds but all of them are pretty tedious.

Is there any simple (GUI - one/two clicks) tool that allow to mount/unmount flash disk easily using the correct options?

I'm using Squeeze 6.0.2 (Kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64), gnome 2.30.2
