android emulator and debian testing - differences on two machines
I am doing some android testing using the standard android emulator and the eclipse IDE. I have two separate machines. One machine, which runs at 1.6 Ghz and one processor, runs the emulator well. The other machine, also running at 1.6 Ghz but two processors, will run for only a short time before becoming so slow that it no longer works. The first machine, the smaller slower one has about 490 MB of usable storage. The machine with two processors has 2.2 GB of storage (I installed a lot of memory hoping to solve this very problem).
Still, the smaller machine runs the emulator well, and the more suped up machine grinds to a halt very quickly (after a half hour or so). Both machines run an updated Debian testing and modern linux kernels. I have not loaded virtualbox and LAMPP onto the smaller machine, and this may be the problem. I am about to remove these two components from the second computer, but before I do I wanted to know if anyone can suggest what else I can try first? I'm not so pleased with the idea of removing my vbox or LAMPP. Occasionally I use these apps.
Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
