Why is the website fetching so slow? Even slower in epiphany browser. I did a net install with minimal gnome and just a few programs. The system is dog slow on fetching sites from any browser. When doing apt-get, it takes forever to connect and then download things around 1.5Mb/s to 3.0mb/s depending on the site. Same computer at home, with same specs IBM R61 2gb ram with SL linux has no issues. Please let me know.
the problem is net browsing and not just apt. Apt works fine once its connected. I got 1.8-2.3Mb/s. It seems like I use a computer with high ping time. On the same machine centos 5.8 and 6.3 have no issues.
