I installed ubuntu desktop version 11.04 on the little NAS box I'm building. I didn't purchase HDD yet, so I tried to install ubuntu on the SDHC card. But it's terribly slow! I would expect it to be faster than normal 5400rpm hdd, since seek times on any flash memory is low.
Pc details: 2gb ddr3 ram, 1.8 dual core atom, asrock d525 mobo, and 8gb SD card. In theory this should be more than enough for ubuntu.
But, few things worry me. First of all I believe I connected card reader to usb port. So that would limit speed. In the face of the fact that reader resides on usb, is this slowness expected?
I ran ubuntu test suit, and on hdd it reported reading speed 800mb/s. How should I check device speed? Is there any other way?
