Interesting. The slowest box I have here is a home router with 32MB of
RAM and a 200MHz MIPS processor, and when I chroot into its Debian
stable install, bash responds instantaneously. I use LANG="" on it
because for no other reason than that's how it happened (the install was
done with cdebootstrap IIRC), but I just tried using fr_CH.utf-8 and it
made no noticeable difference.
BTW, what do you mean by "disable UTF"?
Other than setting LANG=C what else have you done to tune the system?
