Re: Nova Computer Speed



Les,

  Make sure you have sufficient swap space allocated and plenty of room on 
the hard drive.  My Nova runs on a 700mhz Celeron with 512meg memory and 
100ms updates tracking 11 sats at a constant 4% cpu usage.  When that 
machine got low on disk space the problem you described appeared.
