Description SlayerProof32 2018-04-17 03:37:10 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora is quite slow on old systems. Ram usage is high, especially for Firefox. After pushing power button, fedora takes about a minute to reach s3 state, and Opensuse with more tabs open in firefox goes to s3 after 4 seconds

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get older system with release date of <2007 and <4G ram
2.install fedora 28 and Opensuse leap 15
3.open 8 or more tabs on Firefox, try suspending system when booted into both OSes, and using it for work for an hour. Opensuse seems to handle it a lot better

Actual results:
Firefox in fedora isn't very responsive, and way more responsive on Opensuse. Ram usage is much higher for fedora, and fedora load avg suffers

Expected results:
Firefox should preform about the same on both systems, and should be more responsive

If I can debug any of this, please tell me.

What is the s3 state? Ah, according to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UnderstandingSuspend it is the suspend state.

I wonder why you filed your bug in connection with the package gnome-do.
Is your problem in general with Fedora? Or is it specific to gnome-do?

It is a general problem with fedora. Sorry about the package name. I'll change it

Comment 4 SlayerProof32 2018-05-10 03:23:14 UTC
Fixed in latest update, my system is now super responsive with fedora. Closed
