SAGE incredibly slow when running in Virtual Box

asked 2012-11-29 06:37:03 -0500

Hello I recently downloaded sage 5.4.1 and the latest version of VirtualBox.

Everything lags with 3d graphs and 3d vector plots taking up to 5 minutes to load.

On startup I noticed on boot grub complains about something with the VM but it does still start up.

I'm wondering how I can fix this problem? Sage is not really usable like this.

How much memory have you allocated to Sage?

I have 1gb allocated.

You'll need to be more specific: what commands do you notice taking a long time? what is the underlying platform cpu/ram/OS/...? what is the message that grub is reporting when the VM boots?

You might also just try allocating more memory, if you have it.
