    Red face Minecraft Lag

    So when i first start minecraft it all works great no lag no nothing! My dell d620 laptop ran minecraft great on both and windows 7 and xp. but i have 11.10 now and about 1 min after starting the game it slows to a crawl i mean were talking like it paints the screen but only in game. i dont now whats causing this when my pc is good enough to play minecraft.

    system specs: 3 gb ram
    100 gb ssd hard drive
    nvidia dual core graphics card (Maybe quad-core)
    Intel dual-core processor
    dual booting windows 8 CP via wubi

    and btw guys. i have no clue about tech or anything.

    Are you using OpenJDK or Oracles Java?

    Code:
    java -version
    If you are using OpenJDK, you should get much better performance if you use Oracles Java.

    Yup, remove OpenJDK, grab the self extracting linux binary from the link I provided and install that, it *should* help.

    Make sure the binary you downloaded is marked as executable, right click it, click permissions tab, check "Allow executing as a program" then double click it, select run in terminal.
