I am not sure if this is the right place to post it so let me know if it needs to be moved.
I have 2 machines:
1: Desktop running Fedora 16 x86-64
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 550 @ 3.20GHz
2: MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.8 8GB RAM
I wrote a simple XML Parser script that past a heavy file (24MB)
When I execute it on Fedora it freezes up all my OS (Unable to even move the mouse) and takes forever to complete (I cant even kill the process)
When I run the same script on my MacBook which I though should be slower due to the spec it is lightning fast!
More then that, It dosent freezes my OS at all.
I dont think this is right and I believe my system is probably not optimized correctly.
Can you direct me what I need to check?
Do I need to recompile my kernel for better process management and memory management?
I must say that on both machines I am running a VirtualMachine with 1 GB of RAM allocation.
