Load time

I have a 8 years old macbook that should be able to run the game at least a little (it ran very fine about 3 years ago) but the loading now takes *days*. The cpu usage is less than 10 %, ram usage is at 2 GB entire time and the disk io is very low too. I tried running factorio from terminal with `--verbose` but the log does not include anything more interesting. The loading message that takes most of the time is "Loading sprites".
Is there any way I can further investigate what is causing this?
Specs: 2 core cpu, 4 gb ram, hdd, nvidia gpu with 400 glmark2 score, Linux.

There are several settings in the graphics options that lower graphics memory usage. Which in your case is probably shared with your RAM
