I have noticed many people asking why Fedora Core 1 is so slow, but nobody has addressed my question. I am running a Dell Dimension w/2.8GHz P4, 512 MB of RAM a Seagate 80MB drive. Fedora boots very quickly, installs occur quickly, web browsing occurs quickly, but if I select something that brings up a GUI it takes FOREVER to load. Even brining up a terminal windows takes > 25 seconds. I have seen posts about adjusting the disk access with hdparm, that didn't help at all. I have also seen things like turn off some services. That didn't work either. Has anyone else seen this?
