Rails VERY slow on Vista

When I try to script/generate something I have to wait above 2 minutes
befor I get result. Is there some way to fix this? I have Intel Core 2
Duo 6420 with 2GB RAM.

On my Slackware Duron 800 MHz it takes about 45 sec…

Is it install right, maybe you just have to reinstall everything. Or you
could just not use a windows based machine, that would solve a lot of
problems.

I run rails fine with my 1.8ghz 1gb core2duo laptop.
I imagine something is just wrong with the setup of your command prompt.

yes if you run ruby on windows .
but so faster on linux.
i’m working on ubuntu.

Hi,

Instant Rails is a good choose, I tested instance Rails on a XP
computer.
Should be working on Vista without problems.

But I’m using Linux , OpenSuse 10.2 , the performance is much better.
Any kind of server is running better on a Linux system than on a Window
system.

I was having some speed issues on Win XP myself. I installed an Ubuntu
vm and it seems twice as fast. I don’t have any hard evidence to back
up this claim but I know that it’s faster on the Ubuntu vm.

Can you say anything about your installation? There are various
routes to a working system on Windows, and I don’t know how many have
been tested on Vista.

There is Instant Rails, which I’ve never used, don’t know much about.

There is the “one click” Windows installer for ruby, then grab rubygems
and gem install rails -y.

There is building Ruby from scratch with a native compiler, of which
there are several choices, leading to further choices in compiler
options…

Then there are solutions based on Cygwin and other Unix emulations
on Windows, things like MingW.

Have you examined it with the ruby profiler at all, to see where it is
slow?

So more information may help people give you clues as to the problem,
and if you don’t get any useful replies, then you may find rebuilding
Rails some other way is worth trying.

You may need to defragment your disk as well. Certainly on XP that
has helped me.

hmm…
I’ve always run ruby from the “ruby one-click installer” and installed
rails as a gem.
And it’s nuff fast.

I run my tests locally on windows, at the same time as I run the tests
on our testing server (running kubuntu 5.*) and they run equally as
fast.

But, yeah.
I don’t think its something we can debug remotely.

Running generate scripts through Aptana does take a while,
but I blame java for that, not Windows.
