I'm running a Live CD of Linux Mint 15 that I burned to a flash drive of mine. And Linux Mint 15 is pretty good, one of the coolest Live CDs I've ever used. Problem is, it's nigh unusable because of all the lag.
At startup it hangs at this black screen for 3 minutes where only the cursor shows, and when I'm browsing in Firefox or Chrome or something, every time I open a new tab it lags. But it's not just the browser, there are applications that also hang for a while before they open, and also lag when I try to use them. Did I do something wrong in trying to burn this?
EDIT: I might've been able to burn and run an XFCE of Linux Mint 15, maybe, but I don't know if that would work the same way. Is it up to date with Flash and all that like the full Linux Mint 15 is? Either way, I think it's too late to burn it.
Also, is there some Task Manager equivalent in Linux Mint 15 that I can maybe check, see what the problem is? Maybe it's CPU usage?
My problem is, I don't normally have problems running a Linux Live CD. Why is this one lagging? xPUD didn't lag, Parted Magic didn't lag, I don't think Ubuntu even lagged. If I have reasonable computer specs, I should be able to run Linux Mint 15, right? Is this a known issue with Linux Mint 15?
EDIT 2: Actually, does this belong in the Live Linux forum? This is a Live CD. But is that forum really for troubleshooting?
EDIT 3: Or should I have picked the 64-bit version? How do I know if my computer is 64-bit? In Windows, if I right-click My Computer to get to the System Properties, it would say "64-bit" somewhere on the screen if it was 64-bit, right?
And what is Compatibility Mode? Might that work?
