I just installed mint on the family computer.
When I open Amarok to listen to music, nothing at all happens for at least ten seconds. I also have music playback problems (skipping and hanging) when using the rhapsody music service and looking at web pages at the same time. It also seems like the serpentine cd burner is much slower than burning under windows.
Considering I have a 2.4Ghz Pentium 4 with 1GB RAM, is this normal? Does linux have problems with multi-tasking, or do I have some sort of hardware/configuration problem?
Your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated. As I always say,"You are all very nice people."
