Ubuntu :: Slower And More Unstable Than Fedora?

Dec 26, 2010

Why is Ubuntu slower and more unstable than Fedora on my laptop? I thought, as it is a more popular distro, it wouldn't be. I've only used it on my laptop for a couple of days and I already had at least 3 default software crashes. On Fedora, I had about one crash per two weeks. Ubuntu is also slightly slower. Opening the Social broadcast messages window took so long to open, that meanwhile, I totally forgot that I opened it.

General :: LXDE Suddenly Getting Slower And Slower?

Sep 22, 2010

OpenSuse 11.2
LXDE (Latest version)

It used to have a lightening speed. But now every application is taking few seconds to start, even on Konsole, the commands take some seconds to get typed ! (I literally have to wait for cursor to move and commands to get typed on Konsole). Folders are taking some seconds to get opened !

I rebooted the computer but that proved to be useless.

Here the ps output:

anisha@linux-uitj:~> pstree -Apuh `id -anisha`
id: invalid option -- 'i'
Try `id --help' for more information.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Gets Slower And Slower After Its Been Running A While

Aug 7, 2010

Im experiencing a strange problem with 10.04. When it first boots up its reasonably quick (as snappy as Gnome ever has been) but after its been running for a day or two it gets ununsably slow and has to be rebooted.

I dont see how it can be anything to do with my hardware as it runs OK when first started. Ive monitored RAM usage and it doesnt seem to differ much. There's always the same amount unused.

Fedora :: KVM Has Become Unstable / What To Do?

Jul 30, 2010

Has anyone else experienced problems with KVM in the last few days?
I've been running KVM VMs for the last year. Until sometime in the last few days they've been working fine. I have three F13 systems that I'm running KVM on, an iCore7 with a CentOS5.5 VM, a Core 2 with a CentOS5.5 VM and another Core2 with an XP VM. I haven't seen any problems with the iCore7 system but the two Core2 systems are both exhibiting serious problems.

The CentOS VM is hanging. I can ping it but I can't ssh into it anymore. Prior to that state I was able to ssh in put I couldn't do a ps. Eventually I couldn't ssh in anymore. This is repeatable, I've rebooted the system a couple of times and restarted the VM, it always crashes in the same way.

The XP VM is running but the networking is behaving strangely. Basic networking is working but I can't access the Workgroup although I can access network mounted SAMBA shares that I had previously setup. This could be a SAMBA issue but it started happening at the same time as my other problems.

Another problem that I had was that the virtual disks on multiple VMs on both systems became unbootable. I was able to fix this by removing the disks and then adding them back.

Fedora :: 12 Browser Download Slower Than XP

Apr 28, 2010

I have a dual boot machine with Fedora 12 and XP SP2.

Recently I tested download performance using www.speedtest.net. Using seamonkey on XP, i got 22 Mbps on my Comcast ISP. Not bad! However I then tried the same test on Fedora 12 with F12 seamonkey and got 16 Mbps. Thinking it must just be seamonkey, I tried the F12 Firefox and got 12 Mbps

This seems like a pretty big difference. I checked around on google and found several threads decying slower mozilla performance on Linux. I tried the suggestions to turn off ipv6 support, but there was not much improvement.

Fedora :: Intel Gma 950 Much Slower In 3D In F13 Than On Older?

Jun 12, 2010

Is there way to tweak it in some way so the speed is back, because before F13 World of Goo played perfectly and now in F13 it is playable but not "fluid" as before? Also if it is because of changes in F13 considering graphics what to expect in future, would performance be back?

Fedora :: CPU Speed Slower Than In Windows?

Jul 29, 2011

Since I use my computer for some intense processor calculations, without any fancy graphical needs, I decided to apply a mild OC on the BIOS settings, to speed thing a bit up.I own an AMD Phenom II 1055T (2.8GHz) cpu. I changed the base freq from 200 to 203, and changed the multipliers of the standard and boost freqs to x15 and x16.5, so now the BIOS reads 3045 MHz and 3349 MHz for both speeds.

Fedora Networking :: Internet Slower - Than W/Windows

Nov 28, 2010

I recently switched my mom from Windows to Fedora , and ever since her Internet speed went down. Now it takes, on average, 6-8 seconds longer for her to load a web page with Firefox. Tried to replace the modem -- didn't help. She is on a DSL connection.

But here is the striking part. Her BitTorrent speeds are better than mine, and I have a cable rather than DSL.

I can't for life imagine how these two can coexist. An innocent web page takes forever to load, and torrents are so fast. By the way, she does say that torrents used to be *even* faster on Windows.

Fedora :: Why Slower Than Windows On Loading Web Pages

Nov 29, 2010

The same network environment, no matter which browser I use, my fedora 13 always works slower than windows XP on loading web pages. Others are better than windows -- like memory management...(I directly feel that). applications running more smoothly than those in windows xp.

I want to know how could I make it faster on loading web pages.

Note: my network environment can not be changed!

Fedora :: Yum Installing Unstable Code On Computer?

Mar 12, 2010

A substantial proportion of the packages on my computer (yum list installed) are labelled as coming from the unstable rawhide repository. The rawhide repository is not currently enabled and never has been enabled as far as I can recall. How has this situation arisen and what can I do to ensure that packages are only installed from relatively stable repositories?

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Much Slower In FC12/13 Than In Windows

Jun 11, 2010

"Dell 1525 WLAN PCIe card with11n mini-Card & external antenna" wireless card. It got recognized fine by FC12, but it was rather slow. I had read that life would be better in FC13 with the new kernel. After a long wait, I upgraded to FC13 yesterday.

It seems that the wireless is indeed faster. However, it it clearly a lot slower than under Windows 7 (it is a dual boot PC). My test is simply to play say Hulu in full screen: under Windows it looks fine, under FC13 it plays in slow motion.

Fedora Networking :: Slower Data Transfer Rate In KDE V GDM?

Nov 25, 2010

I have a FC13 box that has both Gnome and KDE sessions installed.

I have noticed on the KDE session that data transfer rates are slower than when I use Gnome.

In Gnome, I can transfer files between my FC13 machine and my Ubuntu 10.04 pc at a rate of 6.5 MB/s (52 Mb/s if my maths is correct), but in KDE the rate is only 3.5 MB/s (28 Mb/s).

"ethtool eth0" shows my NIC speed as 100 Mb/s. Obviously I am not hitting anywhere near that speed in either session, (a separate article may be happen in the future to address that), but I am curious as to why KDE is that much slower for file transfer.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Slower To Connect After 15 Upgrade?

May 31, 2011

I've been using fedora on my Lenovo R61i since I got it...I believe the first version I used on this laptop was f10. I always try to keep it on the latest distro and I also enjoy a clean install every year or so. One thing I was always impressed with was how quickly I could go from sleep to back up and online. So I decided it was time for a clean install this weekend to fedora 15. Now when I wake it up (open the lid), it takes over a minute for the wifi to connect again. This hasn't been the case for the last 4 distro's so I'm wondering what I can do to speed that process back up, is there a particular package I can downgrade or is this something on their radar already and I should just wait for an upgrade?

Fedora :: Kernel Plato Won't Work - Machine Became Unstable & Slow

Feb 18, 2011

Is it possible, on a much older computer to hit a point at which any newer kernel just won't work, where a lesser one once did? (or for that matter the whole OS) - OS is F14. The reason I ask is that I've never had a problem w/ any, (kernel) until now. I'm running a PIII w/ 512M (max) - video is Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400/G450 (rev 04)

In the process of trying to fix another problem, I allowed the updates. After, my machine became unstable & slow to respond (w/ drive wanting to run a LOT) I tried rebooting, thinking that it needed to clear some garbage I may have caused. That SEEMED to help but after a while it started again. Seeming to be intermittent, so I tried the older kernel & it all stopped (or so it seem, so far) Also, I removed the "offending" one & was wondering how to skip over it?

Fedora Installation :: 12 Unstable During Boot / Crashed From Starting Udev To The Login Screen?

Nov 22, 2009

Fedora 12 randomly crashes after a fresh install.Everything is left at its default during the installation except I install KDE and not Gnome.When I try to boot I hit esc at the splash screen to see where it hangs, but it never hangs at the same spot twice. Sometimes it hangs and sometimes it restarts. Its crashed everywhere from starting udev to the login screen.

I've been using kubuntu for the past year because I have the same problem with F10 and F11.
I dual boot with Windows 7 for games.

System specs:
Motherboard: MSI P45 Platinum
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
Video Card: Radeon HD4850
Memory: 4GB (2x2GB) Patriot

Fedora Networking :: Unstable Wireless Connection With Broadcom Onboard Wireless?

Dec 21, 2010

I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.

Ubuntu :: Clusterssh Unstable KDE 4.3.2?

Feb 2, 2010

In one of the last KDE 4 updates, or perhaps when moving from intrepid to karmic, using the application "clusterssh" has become completely unstable. Some of the symptoms I have experienced:

1. Window focus problems. Clicking on a single xterm window from a group of xterms controlled by clusterssh does not switch focus to that window. Focus stays on the clusterssh application, so output is still directed to all xterms. Previously, I could interact with a single xterm, or with all of them.

2. Clipboard problems. After using clusterssh for awhile, and perhaps using the clipboard within clusterssh cutting and pasting between other applications completely fails. The only work-around is to completely log out of your kde session, hence killing your clusterssh sessions.

3. xterm window manipulation. At some point during a clusterssh session, all xterm windows become locked in place. You can't move them at all. This also leads to focus problems described above. The work-around for this is to switch virtual desktops, and then switch back to your clusterssh session, and now the windows can be manipulated and re-organized again.

Ubuntu :: Vino 2.28.2 Unstable On 10.4?

May 5, 2011

I have a Linux box with Ubuntu 10.4 that I use basically to play music and download files. It doesn't have a monitor or keyboard, the only way I access it is using Ultra VNC. Yesterday, the automatic update service offered to update Vino (among other things) to version 2.28.2 and, as usual, I accepted.

After the update Ultra VNC has had trouble negotiating the protocol with Vino. The only way I got it to work was to force using Tight as the compression method, which provides a crappy image quality. Besides that, at some unexpected moment, the connection just dies.

Can anyone help me to:
1.- Solve this issue with the current Vino version or
2.- Go back to the previous version that was working perfectly.

Ubuntu :: Only X Running Slower Than Puppy

Feb 7, 2010

I am comparing distros of Linux on a computer with VERY low specs. I have a CLI only version of Ubuntu 9.10 running A-OK, but when I run lwm or just X the video flickers (which I believe is due not to the video card/driver but to the resources used). I have tried this with two video cards with the same result.

When I run puppy it flies with no setup.

I know that Puppy is designed for older systems (2.4 Kernel and all that), but is there any other reason why Ubuntu would be slow in comparison.

I am using the nv driver with a Riva TNT PCI Video card.

Ubuntu :: System Slower Than Windows XP?

Nov 21, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu Maverick on a testing machine, a Samsung N510 (Atom N280/2 GB RAM), and I've been quite surprised that I haven't been able, due to slowness, to reproduce MPEG2/DIVX videos (using VLC).When I subsequently installed Windows XP, the videos were playing fluidly.Now, I also noticed, although this may potentially be biased, that the overall responsiveness of the system is a bit slower than when I use Windows XP (drawing speed of objects).I remember having the same feeling I switched (years ago) entirely from Windows to Ubuntu.

Why is video decoding so much slower on Ubuntu?Providing that the second point (desktop system speed) is not biased, is gnome inherently slower than Windows XP's GUI? Why, if so?

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Slower On 10.10

Jan 18, 2011

I have EastLink cable Internet and I have the fastest residential service money can buy, I get speed test results of 30mbps down and 2mbps up, that being said, my Internet was lightning fast on windows and Mac but when I installed Ubuntu, which is my favourite OS, my Internet is very slow and laggy. Sometimes it could take several minutes for a web page to load and some torrents download at 1-2 MBps and some download at under 100kb/sec, some web pages load instantly, some take longer.

I've searched other forums I found was turning off IPv6, I am not really sure what that is but I followed the steps provided and shut it off but did not notice much of a difference. I am basically a beginner when it comes to Linux, I use the OS for my day to day school and entertainment. I listen to music, watch movies, do school work and such since I am a university student. I really love Ubuntu and don't want to be forced to go back to Win blows, I really don't like windows at all so I would really like to solve this issue and stick with this operating system.

I've used other distros way back in the day that would allow you to use KDE. Can KDE be installed and would this be a better option for an older computer?

I'm posting this here because I have no idea how to address this issue. I have an Ubuntu 11.04 with Windows XP on VirtualBox, Firefox 5 on both machines (virtual and real).I thought my connection was slow when I realized that the browser in VB was much faster than the one in Ubuntu.The problem doesn't seem to be on firefox because Chrome also is slow (I haven't checked Chrome in XP-VB).When I type an address in Firefox Ubuntu it takes a long time to show the page and sometimes the whole browser gets stuck for somewhere around a minute.
