I’m too weak to lug around my monstrous 7 pound laptop, so I bought a netbook. It’s an eeepc 1000 and I love it. I use it for everything, except for processing the kids’ videos and photos. I still use the desktop for that.
The major issue that I’ve had with it is that firefox seemed so slow. I
tried other browsers, some which seemed faster, but I missed my firefox
extensions. I googled and found that others had the same
are 2 flash hard drives in the eeepc. The first is 8GB and contains the
root filesystem. The second is 32GB and contains the
partition. Apparently the 8GB drive is significantly faster than the
32GB one. So the OS performs excellently since it’s on the 8GB drive,
anything that requires a lot of disk access from the 32GB drive slows
.mozilla configuration folder is mounted there by
.mozilla folder to the 8GB drive has made web browsing speedy
again. Here’s how I did it. I’m the only user on my system, so if you have
multiple users, this will only fix the issue for one user.
sudo mkdir /usr/local/share/vinod-mozilla sudo chown vinod /usr/local/share/vinod-mozilla mv /home/vinod/.mozilla /usr/local/share/vinod-mozilla/ ln -s /usr/local/share/vinod-mozilla/.mozilla /home/vinod/.mozilla
