|Make sure you aren't using PIO mode for your storage device (i.e. you have DMA enabled)|
The mode that is using the disk where I have operated is UDMA 5 (ATA 100). Its interface is an IDE-ATA.
Anyway the trials where comparable in both cases, with Parted Magic Linux and with DSL enabled with partimage.UCI.
That is to say: I have my Ubuntu installed in an hda3 partition, and I have an hda5 fat32 partition in the same disk. I make the backup from hda3 to a gziped file in hda5 by means of partimage.
Then the only variable is the OS: Parted Magic vs DSL. Both are running toram. There is enough RAM (2 Gb-Graphical card usage).
The behaviour with Parted Magic was fine, but with DSL it runned like being in a trafic jam: stopping and starting; when stopping all the functions of the desktop were frozen, when starting the speed was apparently good.
A problem with the mode of the disk perhaps could give another profile. Are we in front of a hidden memory misuse? It could be a good idea to investigate what happen with this program, not for the program itself but for if it is showing another defect
Thanks a lot to this forum. It is plenty of people that give response to the questions in a proffessional way.
