Mint is not running fluently, jamming sometimes. Why?

Postby ziemowitt on Thu Apr 17, 2008 6:39 am

I've run Mozilla before a moment and happened something unthinkable. My lovely OS started to jam, just like in Windows. I haven't run other applications at that moment!

What could be the reason? I don't think it's fault of my hardware, it has 1GB RAM, 1.6 CPU.

Could the reason be that I've set to less of SWAP (but there is 2GB!!) or that I've placed SWAP partition in wrong order (before/after system partition)?

What else can influence on proper OS running?

Kindly regards

I'm anxious to hear this answer too. I find that mplayer & movie player jam also.

I have 2gb memory and a dual core amd cpu. Geforce go6100 video.

Swap has probably nothing to do with it, in fact if you have 1 GB of RAM you probably won't need more than 512 MB of swap.
However, this could be a Firefox bug, what version are you using .0.12?

No, my Friend, it's Darayna's Firefox, 2.0.0.6

Do you have some new conclusions?

Firefox is up to 2.0.0.13; one of the problems 2.0.0.6 had was memory leak. MintUpdate prompted the upgrade for me. See also ManusB's post here:

encountered same "freez" issues. used xfce, fluxbox, enlightenment, etc., thinking this was a portion of the system freeze. had opera as a browser which "gummed" 'er up real fast: o lord, for the end is nigh!!! then downloaded the new ati graphics driver which requires the fgrlx(?)driver be removed before install of new driver (as of april 16th). well, after removal of old graphic driver, my system has remained rocksteady, obiedient, warm, soft,,,pleasing. time for a cupa tea! :mrgreen:
from another newbie, gateway laptop, celeron m 2 gb ram. all the best!
