Re: Fedora 9 with poor performance

Hello,
Fedora 9 is under EOL because it is no longer supported. It is best to get Fedora 13 which is the latest version.
The reason about possible poor performance on Fedora 9 is probably due to multiple running services, lack of hardware acceleration.

# A 400 MHz or faster processor
# At least 512 MB memory (RAM), 1 GB recommended for best performance
# At least 10 GB hard drive space (only required for installation)

Re: Fedora 9 with poor performance

You should examine why the performance is so low before you try the "shotgun" approach of thoughtlessly upgrading.


What does "top" show ?
What is happening wrt disk accesses and performance ?
Does "free" report you are using swap space ?

The system you describe should have decent performance so either ... something isloading the CPU, disk access is horrible, or memory is overloaded. I suppose you might be getting a rude number of interrupts from something (try powertop).

Diagnose before you treat.

Re: Fedora 9 with poor performance

Another option is to try going to http://www.winehq.org, and check the status of that game in the applications list. That site holds a huge list of Windoze programs that have been tested and often times workarounds to get them working are also posted.
