Wine IE 6 performance on Ubuntu

Postby sollos » 7. Sep 2007, 01:25

I have been testing Parallels and VirtualBox running Ubuntu 7.04. Parallels is a tad faster, but not a big deal. However, I loaded IEs4Linux which uses WINE and it feels decent on Parallels but crawls on VirtualBox. This is on a Quad core Xeon Mac Pro.

Is there anything that can be done to speed this performance up?

Thanks in advance!

Happens to me too. Wine is unbearably slow with osx as host and ubuntu 7.10 as guest.
For what it's worth, here a snippet from strace $(pidof wineserver), which seems to be the resource hog here:
