Ubuntu :: Slow Upgrade Speed Rate (measured In Bits Per Second)?
May 1, 2010
im willing to upgrade to 10.04, but before i would like to have installed the regular upgrades. They make a total of 100megabytes, but my problem is that the download speed is soo slow, its like 2000 bits per second... amazing. I don't where the problem is. I have broadband, and internet works just great for the whole system and applications.
Sorry for my english in case you didn't understand something!
I'm quite new to linux and I recently (and courageously) upgraded the computer of my work from opensuse 11.0 32bits to opensuse 11.2 64bits.
Well, everything would be quite fine except that I still have some softwares 32 bits that have the 64 bits version available. I know that because, using YaST, I can see by the Installed software section that there are 'choices' of versions for some programs; these versions are 'i586' and 'x86_64', and many of them have the i586 version installed.
So, I wonder if there is some type of auto upgrade all programs which are i586 and have the matching x86_64 avaliable...
I've got an annoying problem with refresh rates in everything to do with videos. Basically, anything that requires a quicker refresh than using a word processor. This includes flash movies on a website to playing an offline video. In website flash, the video tends to, well flash on occasion. The other sort of thing is pan lines or whatever they're called in videos like a simple .avi movie.
I currently have the nVidia 270.29 drivers installed for my GTS450 card, but this was happening with older versions. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 943 which is detected. The resolution and refresh rates are sort of fixed on auto configuration. What I mean is, is that I can use the drop down menu to change the resolution to a manual option, and then it allows me to select a refresh rate, but only limited to 60 and 75Hz.
This setting will stay as is until I need reboot or restart Ubuntu. Even clicking on Save to X Configuration File is not a keeper. However, here's another problem. Doesn't matter which refresh rate is selected, I still get the above problems. The same resolution and refresh rate yields no problem under Win7 which I've dual-booted with.
I would like to know if it is normal to experience 10MB/s data transfer rates during copying between partitions on my local hard drives (Toshiba 250GB 5400rpm SATA) while having three times faster (30MB/s) transfer rates between local partitions and USB drives (Kingston 8GB).
I am trying to sort out a problem with my mum's Ubuntu 9.10. On my laptop, the internet is working fine and is really really fast but on my mum's laptop it is very slow. I tried doing an update and they were unsurprisingly slow as well. I need when I tried to install, they took ages, they kept saying download rate: unknown.
I am struggling trying to understand the reason for a fairly slow data transfer rate between two machines. ( tried point to point and also via a 1 gb switch ) One is nfs/http/ftp server ( with raid1 and lvm on top ), the other one my desktop pc. Both OS with default options, no changes to kernel in proc or other sort of thing.
Hardware is full recognized and perfectly working: The server has 4gb ram, Intel Core 2 Duo CPUE6850 @ 3.00GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Lucid 10.04 64 bit, 250Giga Hard disk. The client has 3gb ram, Intel Core 2 CPU 6320 @ 1.86GHz, 1000Mb/s NIC card and Ubuntu Maverick 32bit , 150Gb Hard disk.

I just upgraded to 11.04 from 10.10. I have a Radeon 6450 with 1GB of video RAM which should give me pretty good performance, but I'm only getting a measly 60 fps with the new ATI diver (11.4). I installed like this, making sure I'd removed the open source driver:sh ati-driver-installer-11-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/nattyThen installed the debs and ran an aticonfig --initial. The module builds and installs fine:tnugent@translocon:~$ fglrxinfo display: :0.0 screen: 0OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 6450OpenGL version string: 4.1.10666 Compatibility Profile ContextBut this is not good:

I recently purchased an iRiver P7 media player which I am using with Rhythmbox under Ubuntu 9.04. The transfer speed when uploading files to the player is phenomenally slow - the first 50 or so MB reported virtually instantly then the speed immediately drops to about 12-15KB/sec yes KB/sec so a 3-400MB video file takes hours to transfer to the player. This happens with the internal memory and the added memory (SD card) too, althoufg it is faster ror the SD card. No other devices have ever behaved like this on this system (and I have used 2 different Creative players, a different iRiver player and numerous memory sticks). The computer is dual booting with windows (for once that was useful) and under windows it doesn't happen, the speed is as expected so it isn't the hardware. I don't want to have to resort to damned windoze just for this. dmesg after plugging in the player shows it identifying both the internal storage and the added SD card but I don't understand the rest of it:
This last message gets repeated lots of times, and during transfers it seems to be issued continuously and I suppose this is why the system is so slow because it is always retrying loads of times before a success.
Currently running 9.10 and am interested in 10.04 upgrade but download manager tells me this is a 1.2 GB download and I have just a wireless connection making this a lengthy and tedious affair.Is there any way of doing a partial upgrade bits at a time without having to go whole hog?
when I reformat ubuntu, I use AptonCD to save packages and then restore them without downloading anything over again. what I want to know is: I have the 32 bits ubuntu installed and then I downloaded the 64 bits version. If i reformat to the 64 bits one, would the DVD saved aptoncd packages from the 32 bits work on the 64 bits installation?
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 from a USB key (16GB). Overall I'm pretty fine with it but there are a few problems I am having. It seems to be very slow. In particular, Firefox and Pidgin freeze every now and then, before becoming active again. The same thing also happens for other applications such as Rhythmbox, Gedit, and the terminal. Additionally my start up and shut down times are horrible (worse than when I use Vista and Ubuntu 8.04). I was wondering if there is something with my install or if this is all due to the fact that I am running from a USB. I don't think it's the USB since I ran 8.04 from a USB HDD (55GB) and didn't have any problems with speed.
I have been trying out Ubuntu One for the past couple of days but find it to be incredibly slow. At first i had put a folder will a large amount of images in the ubuntu one folder. The total size of it was 35Mb, after over 26 hours only 11,5Mb of that had been uploaded.
After looking around some on these forums i saw several comments about it being slow when it is a large amount of files, no matter if the filesize is small or large. I decided to try it out with a larger single file. I erased everything that was in the previous share and then put my testfile of 350Mb in the Ubuntu One folder.
After two hours of waiting i could still not see it on the U1 website so i decided to see how long it would take with dropbox and put a copy of that file in my dropbox folder as well. The file was uploaded correctly to dropbox in just a couple of minutes but it has still not been uploaded to the U1 website even though it has been 4-5 hours since i first put it in my U1 folder.
When using launchpad and the ubuntu daily build website it is very slow. I get 1.2mb/s normally and the speed drops quickly to 0kb/s This is the case from any version of ubuntu that is installed on my laptop.In windows it is no problem, equally there is no problem from a live cd or an install on my external hard disk. Is canonical blacklisting/slow listing my ip?
I am behind a university network but am sure this problem occurs at home .I did a clean install and had no problem until about an hour ago. When I tried to re download a project using bzr my speed instantly ropped.I had downloaded it fine a couple of hours ago. I hope that someone can shine some light on this, its very hard to work on projects if I can't download them.
I have very suboptimal Internet speed in Wifi with Ubuntu. Normally in WIndows 7 I get download speeds up to 800 KB/s and a very fast Wifi experience, but in Ubuntu I get 100KB/s maximum and web page load speed is very extremely slow. Also, pinging to AP often gives very high response times and a lot of lost packages while in Windows they are very low and none packages are lost. I have a Netgear wg111v3 which worked out of box when I installed Ubuntu but always with this problem. It is updated and I've reinstalled Ubuntu many times..
Also I forgot to say that in Ubuntu the connection goes down very often and sometimes will not connect again until I reboot. Again in Windows never happened that. Motherboard: GA-MA74GM-S2H CPU: AMD Athlon 64X2 dual core 2 GB RAM Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit Wireless adapter Netgear wg111v3 USB .....
I have just formated and did a fresh install to start all over. I installed Ubuntu 9.1 and everything went fine but the network. The computer serve as a NAS and MediaPlayer. When getting a file from the server, I get a speed of 40-60mb/sec, which are good for a Gigabit network. When I try to put a file in, the speed can't pass more than 1mb/sec and often stop.
I've been using Ubuntu 8.04 for about a year and the wireless has been fine but now it's gone screwy and I can't figure out why. This has happened on my laptop and wife's who uses Ubuntu Hardy also. The speed drops to almost 0 mb/s whenever the signal strength is less than 95%.
It isn't the internet connection as vista (I dual boot) works fine below 95% signal strength. To get the internet speed to be at a level that can load an internet page, I have to within 3 feet of the router!! Both of the laptops don't use ndiswrapper, the internet connected straight away from a fresh install.
I'm experiencing slow speed transfer between two wireless connected laptops running ubuntu 9.10. Using SSH to tranfer files between these two laptops, which connect to the internet via a wirelesss router, with good speed. This is why I'm surprised by this low speed : 52.3 KB/s, averaging 3 hours and 31 minutes for a 700 Mb movie. Is there any way to make this faster ?
I just installed ubuntu 10.4 on my new laptop and when it boots up there is no splash screen (All I see is a blinking cursor) and it takes about 28 seconds to boot up... I do have all the graphic stuff working...
