• \[OpenBox\]Strong HDD usage


    I have a strong HDD usage when the openbox ui loaded, and I have when the chromium is starting.
    The chromoum starting is also very slow, and the hdd generates a strong noise.

    \#   
    \# /etc/fstab: static file system information  
    \#  
    \# <file system\> <dir\> <type\> <options\> <dump\> <pass\>  
    \# DEVICE DETAILS: /dev/sda5 UUID=74cb0e73-c487-4b8e-9e88-8afefb25d84a LABEL=root  
    UUID=74cb0e73-c487-4b8e-9e88-8afefb25d84a / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1  
    UUID=220A1C870A1C5A5D /home ntfs defaults,noatime 0 0  
    tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nodev,nosuid,size=2G 0 0  
    tmpfs /home/i-sty/.cache tmpfs noatime,nodev,nosuid,size=400M 0 0

  • Hi I-sty,

    Why are you using tmpfs for your .cache dir? And more importantly, why are you using NTFS for your home dir?

  • I am using tmpfs because I saw in the Arch Wiki, and I am using ntfs for my home partition because I used windows 8 for a second OS.

    While ntfs is supported in linux, it does not perform as well as native filesystems (ext,btrfs,ect…) Basically, it’s there to allow you to view/edit your windows partition without rebooting. You would see much better performance if you formatted to ext4 or btrfs. I personally use btrfs, but there is no way to access from Windows. This probably makes ext4 the better choice for you. You can use this program for support in Windows: [http://www.ext2fsd.com/][0]">[http://www.ext2fsd.com/][1]
