Android subsystem - Slow and freeze

:pushpin:Question Description

I’ve noticed that the android subsystem is almost unusable on my installation of FydeOS: it is painfully slow but not in a coherent way. Sometimes it’s super snappy, other times it takes literally 2 minutes to open the calculator. One time I was using gmail and the app froze completely and with it all the android applications: they could be launched but then not a single button was doing anything. The only solution was a complete restart. Sometimes this problem also freeze my task bar.

I don’t think that my pc is the problem since I also use the linux subsytem and everything works fine. I even use Visual studio code with zero problems.

Has this ever happened before? Is there a way to fix it?


:computer:System & Device Information

  • Hardware & System Configuration: Toshiba Satellite
    • Processor: i7 6500U
    • Graphics Card: GTX 950M (don’t think the OS sees it)
    • RAM: 16 gb
    • FydeOS Version: 17.0-SP2

I have been using bluestacks on cloud and so far so good. ( for gaming off course ) there are not many apps I want to use on pc that I cant use as a webapp or on my phone…

The problem is nvidia card, actually the system sees it.

Oh yes I didnt even noticed… yeah he has a nvidia card… disable it.

Thanks, I’ll try to disable it.

But why does nvidia cards slow the subsystem? is it the same with the AMD radeon ones?
Does this issue only applies with laptops or it also happens to desktop towers?

Probably cause theres no official driver for chromeOS
