Post#1 by KSA_ARAB » 11 Jan 2011, 01:51

I have DELL laptop with 1GB RAM.
since I use x86_64, the system become slow after half hour from open desktop. and some time freeze and I need to do restart.
if start live-cd will work very slow, so... I am copying cdtoRam every time and work fine for first 30 minutes, then become slow and freeze .

any suggestions ?

1) Can you use additional 'swapfiles' placed on a write-able media as described in the FAQ?
2) If possible - you can also try 'copy2ram' + 'changes=' cheatcode so aufs will be mounted on a hard drive (when you do 'df -h', root partition will show a size of your hd partition) and not in the memory, so you will have full 1GB reserved for applications and system operations.
3) if two above are not an option, try to run without 'copy2ram' or use LXDE :)

i know it's not a perfect solution - but KDE-4 + 'copy2ram' is just too low for 1GB of RAM.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
