Comment 4 for bug 269082

Ubuntu 8.04.2

latest tuxpaint and tux suite apps... but it happens on all of them
since at least a year...

gigabit network... its definitely not the network... as even google
earth and video streaming work fine without bringing as many computers
down.
We see the slow down on our dual xeon processor server with 16 gigs of
ram with only 10-15 users starting up the tux suite. Its the most
dramatic slow down and freeze of any software on the thin client
systems, and we're trying to figure out why.

here is a related bug post:
http://osdir.com/ml/linux.ubuntu.user.edubuntu/2007-12/msg00182.html

I can test some other non tux4kids SDL stuff if you like, but I know
gcompris and childsplay work much better... Over the next couple days
I'll try running a bunch of other SDL stuff and see how it fares
compared to tux4kids stuff...

anyway here are the version numbers:
tuxpaint: 1:0.9.17-1ubuntu3
tuxmath: 1.5.8-2
tuxtyping: 1.5.15.dfsg1-3ubuntu1

If you need anything else, let me know

Kind Regards,
David Van Assche
