I'm currently using Backtrack 4 Final with VMWare Workstation 6.5.3. I've installed all the kernel source and headers and run the install script, however, it still really seems to be lagging. It literally takes at least 10 secs to load up a terminal session. Any ideas?
I have dedicated 1024mb ram and allocate to processor cores to running it so I can't forsee it being a problem with hardware. In addition I never had this problem when running Backtrack 3, Backtrack 4 Beta or Prefinal?
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...are-image.html since I have a similar setup.
Cheers for the quick response guys, you were right about the artsd being the problem. I obviously kill the process and things speed up, however, it then removes sound from Backtrack. This isn't the main problem though, I have to kill it everytime I boot up.
I tried using the post that Pure H@te left but to no avail. Any ideas? Is it possible to replace artsd with another service?
dual boot? lawlz sorry i also have it installed via vmware its working ok with me. but i didnt liked it so i decided to dual boot it and now im loving it
Maybe its your hardware?? not enough ram?
