Ubuntu :: Running Off A USB Stick; Very Slow?

May 28, 2010

Now that I'm on Ubuntu, I love the look of it. Navigating the OS menus is fast and programs are generally fast once they're running, but they're extremely slow when first opened (basic programs like Firefox, OpenOffice Writer, etc.). Is this because I'm running Ubuntu off of a USB stick? I don't know if I'd make the full switch if programs typically open this slow, but otherwise I love Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Embeded - Nas From Usb Stick Slow Transfers

Nov 21, 2010

With Ubuntu 10.10 server installed on an
- AMD Athlon II X2 235E CPU AM3
- 2GB DDR3

Installed on a software raid 1 of 16 GB usb sticks that can sustain 24MB/s read and 13MB/s write rates
running
- ssh
- zfs-fuse installed from apt
- samba

With the zfs using the sata II controller, with a 2TB, 1.5TB and 500GB in a raidz1 (I know, it's uneven, I'll be changing them all to 2TB once I get the data off those drives).

However I'm experiencing a REALLY REALLY exceptionally slow zfs performance of only 600KB/s transfer rate even when using the command:

To test. CPU usage is only at 25% (with dedup=on) however I notice that the usb sticks are regularly transferring data during this write to the zfs pool. Also when doing a zpool scrub it completes 9.6GB of scrubbing in well under 2 minutes. Admittedly it shouldn't actually be doing much as no data was changed by me while the 3rd drive was unavailable.

I'm thinking that there is some data being temporarily saved to the main system drive (usb sticks) and then transferred to the pool, and this is causing a bottle neck. Note both 16gb usb sticks are plugged in to the same usb 2 host controller, but the combined write bandwidth of those sticks is not enough to saturate a usb2 bus.

How to track down this bottle neck?

Ubuntu Installation :: Network Forward - USB Stick Seems Very Slow To Load

Mar 29, 2011

I tried Ubuntu Network version on a USB stick on my Netbook Samsung NF210 with 2GB RAM but this does not seem to be a viable way forward to me. Ubuntu on USB stick seems very slow to load. When resuming seemed to throw up errors. Resuming from Windows takes 3 seconds. I am reluctant to dual boot my netbook with Ubuntu after my experiences with my spare laptop. Is there a safe way to install Ubuntu on a netbook to dual boot with Windows Starter? how I get Ubuntu to work with a 'Three' Mobile dongle?

Ubuntu :: Running Partimage From SysRescueCD USB Stick?

Nov 18, 2010

I have a 16gb flash drive with system rescue cd installed, I boot to it and run partimage. I'm trying to image an NTFS HDD. I would like to save it to the empty space on the flash drive but I'm unable to locate it in the file manager.

It's not under /dev/sdb1 or /livemnt/boot. The entire flash drive has been partitioned to be used by sysrescueCD.

General :: Running Ubuntu From USB Stick - Cannot Connect To Internet

Feb 9, 2010

I have been using Mepis on a dual boot computer for over a year. I want to give ubuntu a try so I made a bootable usb stick from ubuntu's live cd. Everything works as advertised even saved files and changes. I can't connect to the internet. I am connected via a 2wire modem to a linksys router thats connected to my computer through a ethernet cable. the router is for connecting my son's computer. Anyway I have no problems connecting from windows or Mepis. Whats strange is I can even connect when booting directly off the Ubuntu live CD.

When I try connect when booting from my usb stick I get a can not connect error. I am using the auto eth0 function and everything appears fine. I compared my settings from when booted from the Ubuntu live CD and they are Identical. I used network tools and I can ping my IP address but when trying to ping a web address I get the can not connect error. I am beginning to think ubuntu has my USB stick confused with a CD but not sure how to correct it. Here's some additional INFO:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1c:25:6f:b2:70

Debian :: Deb Squeeze Running From USB-stick

Mar 8, 2011

I want to get a running Squeeze onto a bootable USB-stick to test it, to make desirable adaptions and adoptions and only when I feel, that everything is okay, install that over my existing Deb-installation.

The DVD however offers only an "install" over an existing Linux-system, destroying that. Really hours and hours of Google aso. brought no solution to a - in my opinion - simple task.

I want to transfer the content of the DVD onto the USB-stick, make that stick bootable and THEN enable me to act like the system on the stick were my real OS, including of course making changes to the configurations. Only when I'm satisfied with the result, I then want to overwrite my existing system.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Stick Very Slow Copying - Taskbarpanel Notifier Doesn't Show Progressbar

Sep 11, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.3 with KDE4 on three different computers. Only one of them has the following problem: When I use my Sandisk Cruzer USB-stick (FAT32 formatted), copying is extremely slow. Also, the taskbarpanel notifier does not show a progressbar or a cancel button during copying. It only shows that is copying but I can not cancel. On the other two computers, the same stick works ok. The computer has the following mainboard: Asus M4A87TD/USB3

Ubuntu Networking :: Get New Belkin 7050 Wifi Stick Up And Running?

Mar 12, 2010

For two days I've tried to get my new Belkin 7050 wifi stick up and running. No matter what I did nothing changed, at all. After close to 8hrs of straight trouble shooting I have made zero progress. Zero.

If you have a bunch of free time and want a project then feel free to play with this device. However if you're short on time or have work to get done just take it back to the store and get a different device.

Here's the over view of my situation :

- Ubuntu 8.04 : Device is detected. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP. Router can see device. Router has no security / password enabled.After several hours of trouble shooting Ubuntu I booted into win2k (supported by device)

- Win2k : Device is detected, official software installed. DHCP = Doesn't connect to router / get IP.

It does the exact same thing in Win2k as it does in Ubuntu. - Ubuntu 9.10 : Did a fresh install if 9.10 just to trouble shoot this problem. Symptoms are exactly the same. DHCP doesn't get an ip. There are no errors in /var/log/messages

- Ubuntu 9.10 : Blacklisted the regular drivers and did the ndiswrapper method, smooth sailing. After all is said and done it does the exact same thing. DHCP doesn't get an ip.

In all the trouble shooting I did (iwconfig, ifconfig, etc) I never received any error messages telling me that something had went wrong (besides the part where dhcp didnt get an ip).

Ubuntu Networking :: Install On Samsung N250 Netbook / Test Works By Running From USB Stick First (without Removing Windows 7)?

Jun 28, 2011

am currently using Windows 7 across my networked PCs at home.

I've just received my new Samsung N250 Plus Netbook which comes with Windows 7 Starter (yuk). I read a post on Ebuyer from someone who has installed ubuntu on his N250 so thought I'd give it a go tonight.

My main concern is whether my wi-fi card (Broadcom 802.11n according to windows) will work when I remove windows and install ubuntu. I intend to use the netbook for internet use only while working abroad.

Is it possible to test it works by running ubuntu from my USB stick first (without removing windows 7)?

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Running Slow / Speed It Up?

Feb 25, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10, replacing Windows 7.

its running a little slower than I hoped it would, loading movies takes a while, and when i switch to full screen, it takes about 5 seconds to catch up.

im suspicious that my video card driver might not be configured correctly. can anyone tell me what I might need to configure to get things running smoother?

other things on the computer are also running slow, like opening Firefox, it takes a while for the window to appear.

- Athlon 64 x2 5200+
- Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2h motherboard
- Radeon HD 3650 512mb pci-e
- 4gb DDR2 800

and I do have ATI catalyst installed

Ubuntu :: Running A Little Slow - Jerky Even ?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm running 9.1 Karmic Koala UNR and recently (over the last week or two) the system has been running somewhat slowly. The boot is still lightning fast, but opening up programs takes a second or two, it can sometimes take a second or two for menu's to respond to mouse overs.

I've noticed the problems in applications as well. Streaming media over firefox (and I have a 40GB landline, I don't do lag) appears jerky as if skipping a frame or two while sound carries on almost as normal.

Netbeans (I have crash issues at the moment) also runs slowly, alt-tab takes a few seconds longer than every other program.

General Windows are just slow to load (one to three seconds) and menu's take a while to appear (2-3 seconds on mouseover or click)

Usually Ubuntu is lightning fast, I by no means have top of the range laptop...sacrifices have to be made... it's a simple Acer notebook.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Running Really Slow

Sep 30, 2010

I currently have 10.04 desktop version installed on my desktop. However my firefox seems to be running extremely slow. Can anyone guide me on the way of checking the system. Mostly is there a command that I can run that will kill all my unwanted processes. I do not do a whole lot on this desktop besides ssh and telnet to other devices and use firefox.

Ubuntu :: Slow Running 10.10 Laptop?

Oct 31, 2010

I have a slow computer. When I click on an icon say Firefox it can take 10 seconds to load. when I minimize and maximize windows you can see it happening. I get "ghost" screens where you see the window outline of the box but nothing in it or it may be white. The laptop is two years old and has these specs:

Intel core two duo 2.8GHZ CPU
4GB RAM
500GB HDD
512MB Nvidia 8600GT video
Realtek HD audio

What is going on and where should I start looking for issues? Ubuntu 10.10 was upgraded from 10.04LTS following the instructions from the Ubuntu Wiki and it was done through the update manager GUI, not the CLI.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Running Slow (Random) After 15-30 Min

Nov 21, 2010

I installed 10.04 on a Dell Vostro Laptop, under Windows. After 15-30 min, the system begins to slow down and then grind to an almost halt. The resource manager tells me that I am using approx. 30% of my CPU and about 25% of my memory. The slow down occurs if I open min. (1-2) apps or more. Also, I can not track it to occurring after I use a specific app. The only non-standard item I installed was a Broadcom wireless driver.

General :: Ubuntu 8.04 Running Very Very Slow?

Apr 14, 2010

My Toshiba Satellite Pro SP2100 with Ubuntu 8.04 all of a sudden is running very very slow taking ages to boot and is unstable. Some functions will not work at all and when typing the letters appear some time after they are typed. Nothing was downloaded or anything different it was being used just as it has been for more than two years. It has 512 ram. I tried the Mem test and after running for more than 12 hours showed no problems. I did a re-install no better, I tried to load Nimble X but it would not load and it has in the past, tried a Intrepid and it took hours to load but no good.

Ubuntu :: WindowsXP Running Slow In VirtualBox

Apr 1, 2011

I have WindowsXP installed under VirtualBox. Most of the time this works fine, but sometimes when I boot it up, it runs so incredibly slowly that it is unusable. My only solution to this has been to copy out the important data, restore the vdi file from backup and reboot. This usually solves the problem until next time. "top" shows that vbox is taking 35% of the memory (which is the amount I have allocated) and about 102% of my dual core's CPU. Everything else is running OK at the time.

Ubuntu :: Running Slow After Natty Upgrade?

Since my upgrade to 11.04, ubuntu has been running real slow. When I click on the firefox icon on the side bar, it literally takes over 3 seconds to start opening up. And the same thing goes for folders. Is there something I need to tweak to fix this? And my computer is pretty fast on its own, vista runs very fast on it if that says something.

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.

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?
