RR laggy- How to optimize RR for a slow system and what skin to use
I am currently running RoadRunner with Simplistique using Winamp for audio and Mapmonkey for GPS.
This setup runs on a C3 800mhz CPU with 512 MB RAM and a 40GB 2.5" HDD and is set in my Opel Corsa in Chennai, India,
The OS is nlited Win XP stripped down to ~200MB with most useless services killed.
My windows startup is around 15 seconds from the POST screen so I presume the OS is fairly optimized
The problem I am facing is that Roadrunner seems to be very laggy.
-If I click on the music icon on the home screen, it takes 2+ seconds for the music screen to come up
- If I click on the vol up/down buttons, the actual adjustment happens after 2+ seconds
- Searching for music is extremely laggy and does not emulate the "J" hotkey on winamp, i.e. it won't find a song until i type in the exact name
Which brings me to my questions:
a) Is there a skin that is optimized for relatively low end configurations
b) Are there any config edits in RR that would help me improve the response times
I could do a trial-and-error on different skins and setting combinations to resolve this, or dig into the collective knowledge base of mp3car users :-)
The latter is obviously preferred :hippie:
Thanks for the help folks..
