LMDE RAM problem

Postby MrDuxisizzy on Sat Feb 23, 2013 4:47 pm

Hi there,i am new to linux,and i have a little problem.
i got 2GB RAM Memory and when i play java game "Spiral Knights" its like i am playing with 256Mb,its not lag,its something like "cut lag",i am playing and then cut for a second,and that is random...
Anyone know what is the problem?
Btw i got AMD Sempron LE-1150 a old model,its older than your grandma
its cloaked to 2000MHz...
EDIT: also i have NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT..

Ok so,when my system is in idle state, "free -m" command says :

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 2026 642 1383 0 0 292
-/+ buffers/cache: 349 1676
Swap: 0 0 0

And when playing game (Spiral Knights) :

total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 2026 1247 778 0 0 374
-/+ buffers/cache: 872 1153
Swap: 0 0 0

I don't know what is problem,i think that is RAM,but maybe processor?

How much swap do you have, and how fast is your hard drive? Also, is the nVidia GeForce 9500 GT an external video card with its own RAM, or an internal graphics system.

Are you running from the Internet? If so, you must also investigate your Internet connection speed to the site, buffering in the computer, etc.

Ok so i think that this is network connection problem,cause when i play Counter Strike 1.6 my fps is 20-100,and Spiral Knights bases on java,maybe java could be problem or network,i searched for networks problems and i found that roaming mode slows my network,so i turn it off and connection is better but it lags when 2+ monsters spawns in game. My surfboard is : Motorola SB5101UE Cable modem,i see that Linux doesn't request custom driver for network...Also online games (armorgames,hackedgames or games with high graphics etc.) have no lag,all is good. Spiral Knights also download resources (i think) from internet (Its realtime map changing)..

Code: Select all
swapon -s
is the code to list any swap space used by your Linux OS. I am concerned because Java machine/code can take up a lot of memory space and you only list having 2G RAM. You may be running out of RAM on Spiral Knights, which, if you don't have swap set up, can cause slowdowns. That is why I asked.

You may want to read this article for more information on swap space. http://www.linux.com/news/software/appl ... swap-space
