Tellico and Ubuntu 8.04
Hi to Everyone !
I have some problems with Tellico, as soon as I build a tc database that
gets over 15,000 items or so. This concerns file listings only, for at
this stage I have no experience with large databases of books or other
So, Tellico runs rather slowly with such databases, and it then becomes
very difficult to switch my DELL Inspiron to either sleep or hibernating
modes. If I do so after I have worked on Tellico, it takes forever, that
is, sometimes up to 10 - 15 minutes or more, to reach sleep mode, and
about the same time to wake up. I have thus learnt to know that, after I
have worked with Tellico on large files, I have to quit Tellico and then
run a complete shutdown and reboot, if I am to expect my Inspiron to
behave normally afterwards.
Could someone explain what is likely the reason of such a weird
behaviour ? Could that be due to the fact that my Ubuntu system runs
Gnome, while Tellico uses KDE ? My system is as follows : 2 GHz
processor, 1 GB RAM
Is there another books/files/collections manager that could be expected
to work better than Tellico, such as GCStar or else ?
I must say that this Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) system runs fine with any
other application, and that, for instance, I can have a large openoffice
file open and put the laptop to sleep or to hibernate, and later have an
almost instant wakeup on demand.
