Not much else to say. I'd say it takes at least a minute before I get to the login screen. After that it runs fine and most of the previous problems I've had since upgrading have resolved themselves. why it's taking so long to boot up?
Have a little problem/annoyance. I was trying to use a Live CD with Lucid Lynx 10.04 x86 edition and the speed was incredibly slow. I took more than 10 minutes just to start. I noticed the CD drive stopped spinning (or spinning so slow I couldn't hear it) at times, then starting up again. I also noticed multiple i/o error in the logs after it finally booted up. The reason why I think this is a bug and not my drive/cd is simple:
a) The MD5ed the iso and even made two CDs with different burners. I tried older Ubuntu as well as several other Linux distros and the Live CD boot time is much faster (1-2 min). Tried the CD on a way, way older ancient laptop and i booted just fine and much faster.(I will provide any other info if needed).
At work, we use Ubuntu to compile large numbers of C, C++, Java, and AIDL files.My system is a Core i7 Quad-Core with 8GiB of RAM. Prior to this install, it ran Ubuntu 9.10, 32-bit. A basic compile took roughly 45 minutes.I just did a clean install with (x)Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. After setting up the build environment to allow 32-bit libraries (mobile development), a compile took roughly an hour:15.
I have had an extremely slow startup (upwards of a few minutes) for awhile now, and nothing seems to work to fix it. Regular boot time is far slower than it should be, and the time of logging in to a workable desktop is just really bad. I will log in, and then I will either get a blank desktop screen for awhile or an all black screen until the desktop will fully load with errors from gnome-panel and AWN not starting up automatically.Some of the fixes I have tried:
Disabling floppy from bios
Downgrading gnome keyring
Removing gnome* and gconf* from the home directory
Putting this script in /etc/init.d #!/bin/sh echo "nameserver 0.0.0.0" > /etc/resolv.conf
Here's my bootchart and a link in case the upload has problems http:[url].....
I have an HP LaserJet 2100M.Printing OpenOffice documents is o.k. no great delay but when I print out from browser pages (html) each page can take up to 10 minutes to print.I don't know how to troubleshoot this.
I know this has technically been posted but I think my situation is a bit different. People have been complaining that karmic is slower to boot. But from what I gather, it's only a few seconds extra due to an extra splash screen. I'm running Ubuntu Studio and mine takes like 5 minutes and is showing me 3 splash screens! 2 for regular Ubuntu and 1 for studio, which is the most sluggish of the three.

EDIT: Also, recovering from hibernate takes a few min. Related?
I'm getting horrible (unusable) performance every time swap is accessed. This was compounded by the GEMS leak and a few other memory leaks, but now under normal non-leaky memory usage swapping is still intolerable. For instance swapping out ~300mb when I opened a new program with RAM full resulted in the system nearly freezing up for about 3-5 minutes (however long it took to brew a cup of coffee and come back to the system just finally unfreezing).
I've got Ubuntu Server 10.04 on a fairly beefy box (quad-core xeon 2.67ghz, 2gb ram) Standard mysql-server installed, with many databases.Lately, mysql has been extremely slow and almost non-responsive. Server loads are low.Running mtop reveals many, many processes from the user: debian-sys-maint querying the information_schema table with the exact same query, over and over."Select count(*) from tables where engine = 'innodb'"
This is adversely affecting my database server, and thus my websites which rely on mysql. Every search I've done looking for more information about the debian-sys-maint user shows problems where that users was deleted. The user isn't deleted.
I'm running windows 7 on my laptop at work (I know, I know, but I have good reasons). In order to at least some of the benefit of Linux, I run Ubuntu in virtualbox. Things pretty much work great, except more often than not, gnome terminal is really sluggish. It seems like a simple program - I can get videos to play fine, why can't I type text. I installed xterm, and it has the same problem.
I run F12. Since some days my laptop has become very sluggish. In Mozilla, switching between the tabs takes like seconds instead of fraction of a second. Also minimizing and mximizing windows takes long. Switching between the windows too takes long. Now I can't see the cursor while typing this post. I disabled some services that start at the boot time. I'm posting a list of services that are on in the runlevel 5 as that's the one I use.
I downloaded the emulator called pSX so i can play my playstation cds in my computer. on my laptop i have slackware 12.2 installed.
The dependencies for the emulator are: opengl gtk alsa gtkglext libxml
I found the appropriate packages for all of these (with the exception of opengl, I assume that means it's preinstalled, correct me if I'm wrong) and installed them. the emulator runs, at about a quarter the speed it's supposed to. I get no error messages in the terminal, just the huge speed drop. has anybody else gotten this emulator to work fine in slackware?
I don't think any changes have been made to my laptop, but it suddenly loads Ubuntu extremely slowly. The time it takes to get from the Toshiba boot screen to the Ubuntu Log-in screen takes easily 20x as long.
Has anyone else been experiencing this kind of lag or have any ideas where to begin?
so i had Jaunty installed last week with no problem. But then i decided to install winxp, erasing it. I hated it, and reinstalled ubuntu, this time lucid.However, the internet has stopped working properly. I've tried wireless and wired connections and they either dont work or will load half a web page after a few minutes. A good deal of the time the browser will time out or fail to find server.The ethernet is working, so I'm assuming the issue is with a missing driver or the such. I have 10.04 32bit installed on Gateway MD2614u laptop.
I am currently facing a weird problem, It's that the internet connection becomes extremely slow when using static IP instead of DHCP when Im connected through a cable! The local network seems okay with both, but differs when using the internet!
I've ran a ping test and got the following results!
using static IP
Code: $ ping -c 3 google.com PING google.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=1 ttl=42 time=343 ms
When I used static IP i received only one packet while when using DHCP i received all three!! Also I lost 66% of the packets when using the Static IP connection! And most importantly, the speed, DHCP connection was 8 times faster than Static IP connection!
I recently attempted to set up my laptop (Sony Vaio VGN FS850) to dual boot Windows XP Professional and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I set everything up following this tutorial: [URL]
When I try to boot into Ubuntu though, it took me 17 minutes to get to a workable desktop. And once I was there it takes about 3 minutes to open an application like OpenOffice. Everything runs at decent speeds once it is open but that is still ridiculously slow speeds. I was expecting the 15 second boot times that I had heard about.
Streamed videos on various Web sites are slow and choppy for me. The problem seems to be a cross-browser issue, today I did an informal test of various sites I frequently use on both Mozilla Firefox and Chrome. The results of my informal test are below, and as you can see they are mostly the same for both Firefox and Chrome.
Google Chrome- You tube-- no problems once video loads, but loading is slow Daily show-- very slow loading, sound ok, video extremely slow, choppy, unwatchable ESPN--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy eHOW--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy
Mozilla Firefox You tube-- no problems but sometimes slow loading Daily show-- a little slow loading but sound and picture ok ESPN--sound ok but picture very choppy eHOW--slow to load, sound ok, picture is very slow, choppy
I was streaming a video when suddenly I got a warning that a script was running. I closed the browser and then the computer became really slow.I re-started my computer and had mounting problems. That is fixed now.However, my vlc and other players are not functioning properly. Moreover, whenever I stream a video, it always gets stuck and becomes slow. This has been persisting for quite sometime now.
im experienceing issues with DANsGuardian speeds being extremely slow. Basically - I have Squid up and running perfectly, when i change the ports from DG to the standard proxy i have full internet speeds, but as soon as i run DANsGuardian, it takes about 1 minute to load a page :/ Any ideas on what could be causing this?
I have an old HP pavilion laptop (2005) that was useless.I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on it and it became a working computer again. It was excellent, snappy, it was as if I had bought a lower end modern laptop.Internet was working great.I did not have any complaints (in fact, I thought that a modern computer running Ubuntu would beat my so adored macbook, speed wise). For some time I had 2 efficient computer, a macbook and the hp with the Ubuntu OS. So on the last weekend of February, my internet got extremely slow on both computers. After that annoying weekend (February 28) the internet on my mac was good again,however, the internet on my linux continued to be messed up.I tried disabling IPv6 on my machine and on firefox, tried the openDNS, the MTU stuff, but nothing.I even formatted my disk and installed ubuntu again (all this using the installation CD).However, apparently the installation CD uses some of your existing configurations (for example, the layout of the close, minimize,maximize:menu buttons on the corner of windows did not go back to default). So I'm guessing whatever was messed up with the computer didn't change back to default or the previous configuration when I first installed ubuntu. To give you an idea of how slow the internet is, installing alien (terminal installation),I got low speeds of around 150B/s (no typo here, it was bites, not kilo bites) and the fastest around 5,000B/s. The fastest I got was downloading chrome at 6kB/s but that didn't last even a minute. So given that these transfer rates are obtained both on firefox and the terminal, I'm assuming it is not a browsing problem.
A thick headed solution, would probably be to install windows again to get the network configuration to "standard" and then install Ubuntu formatting the disk again (using the CD).I'm using ethernet,so,thinking it might be cable problems, I did try to use the cable that was on my mac on the machine with linux. No success there.
I don't know if others are experiencing this but browsing is extremely slow in firefox after "upgrading" to ubuntu 11.04. I have not tried other browsers. Even checking for updates fails several times.
I had to re-boot to windows to post this thread and now it's working fine. It's been 3 days since upgrading and I've observed many times that there's no such problem in windows while I have to wait like 4-5 minutes and refresh many times to open a single page. Some sites like google are quicker though. I use firefox 4.0 both in ubuntu and windows. I didn't have this problem in 10.10 and it took me about 5 hrs. to download 1 GB upgrade packages.
I can see the Facebook homepage (facebook.com/home.php) immediately after clicking on the bookmark. But with Facebook apps (mostly flash games) I have to wait up to 10 minutes while Chromium status is showing the message "Sending request...". This won't happen to Windows on the same machine.My Ubuntu version is 11.04. I can access other sites normally fast.Please note that I'm not talking about the flash thing but the Ubuntu networking.
my installed windows makes full use of the 32mbit connection. in fedora i get between 10kbit and 100kbit.this is very annoying especially while browsing the net or using the package manager to do updates or download new software. what could be the problem and how could i solve it?
i very much like the look and feel of fedora 15, but this just makes it unusable on a daily basis.
SSH access works fine from a LAN computer, but anything over the internet is extremely slow or times out. We're talking a good 1-2 minutes just to get the login prompt!This is a new installation, I switched from Fedora to CentOS. Previously, SSH from off-network worked perfectly fine with Fedora.What could it be? All other network services on this machine are working properly and at normal speeds, it's just SSH that is not willing to cooperate.
I'm a Ubuntu 9.10 user and have baught a WD 1.5TB HDD. When just formating it with gparted it's extreemly slow! I have read that with gparted 0.51 there are ways to get this harddrive to work correct but there are no 0.51 packages available for 9.10.
My wife and I have: iPhone 16GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken) iPhone 32GB 3GS on iOS 4.2.1 (not jailbroken) We're running Ubuntu 10.10 and syncing our phones with Rhythmbox 0.13.1. It's painfully slow and skips songs sometimes. For 1500 songs, it's taking up to 5 hours. This is insane. I updated my apt sources and can mount our phones just fine. Syncing slowly is the only issue. I've read a ton of other reads about iPods having this issue as well, but not only were those issues never resolved by I haven't seen one with the actual iPhone.
