    Terrible Performance


    I have Macromedia Flash 8 running under Wine on Gentoo, and it functions okay but the performance is unspeakably bad. It takes 5-15 seconds for the program to respond to every mouse click! At first I just accepted it, but I have since read that Wine should perform reasonably well.

    Does anyone know how to speed Wine up?

    The program possibly uses a lot of resources, so that you would have to upgrade your system, if you want it to perform with a reasonable speed.

    Cheers,

    I have a pretty high end machine. It was certainly top spec a year ago when I bought it.

    Thanks.

    Ah. Just noticed that its not always slow. It is capable of responding reasonably well, its just the drawing I am working on. It uses a lot of imported graphics and is large so my guess is now that all the memory is being used up holding the drawing in memory, making the program run so slowly.

    So question now is, can I increase the memory available to the application as it runs under Wine?

    It just sounds like what I did presume:

    Solution: Upgrade, by sticking in another RAM-stick in the extra RAM slot.

    ....Resource hungry applications use up more GB of the RAM-memory.
