Why remote X is slow (squeeze client, lenny server)?


Hya,

I have one headless squeeze and two notebooks (one squeeze, one lenny).

When I have X (on headless squeeze) on lenny notebook, it is unacceptably slow. Something like it takes 3-10 seconds to redraw window (acroread, iceweasel, possibly xterm.)

It is not so slow when I use squeeze notebook.

Yesterday, I upgraded lenny one to squeeze. Then, it is not slow any more!!

I am just curious why this happens.

Happy Penguins!

I think that when a linux pc is not connected to a monitor, xorg does not start, maybe to save some resources.
So, in your situation, xorg starts "by remote demand" and that may make it slow.
