2.1-RELEASE (i386) sucks on my old machine - I need to downgrade
How to downgrade to 2.0.3 relase? I can't find old relase to download…
New 2.1 version sucks on my old machine ( Intel Celeron , 512MB RAM ) CPU activity is still at 80-90%
Old version ( 2.0.3 normal CPU activity was approx. 8-13%
Not all the mirrors have the 'old' directory:
However 2.1 is faster on most machines. What is the CPU doing? What are you doing with the box?
It's hard to say, what CPU doing, because when I click Diagnosis -> CPU Activity, nothing happens ( empty window )
Well that's not a good sign.
Try running 'top -SH' at the command line.
What Celeron are you running?
Maybe instead of doing a downgrade, do a clean install of 2.1 and restore settings. I'd bet it will then work fine.
I run Celeron Coopermine ( Socket 370 ) 1000MHz…
But one hour ago, I found that CPU fan have failure. Radiator was overheated and fan stops. ( I do not have spare cpu fan for such old socket )
In that case, I decided to move on a "new" platform - Dell CPU Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 2GB RAM
For now everything works fine, even with 2.1-RELEASE (i386) ( on new PC )
thanks a lot
