Um... you could overclock your computer (making it run at a higher speed then its supposed to) by getting into the BIOS when you start up the computer and increasing the voltage,and speed.

Or you could lose the GUI, but that would be kinda stupid, but it would speed up your comp a lot.

hi
what services have u closed down
check out if u closed these
these are for NFS,close them if u do not require NFS
they ae very heavy(resource consuming)

go to
system settings--->server--->services

close the nfs service s and related services if u do not require these
close pcmcia,that we have generally in laptops

close rhnsd
also to get a good output i have compiled my kernel whch had increased my system performance

regards

You could try building your own custom compiled kernel. There are some performance enhancing features that may or maynot be enabled in the FC2 standard kernels. At the same time you can compile certain modules directly into the kernel. And at the same time remove things that you know your computer can't do or won't support.

More accurately, it's the performance-reducing options that are turned on. To maintain as much compatibility as possible, the standard kernels have most everything turned on. Most of that is unnecessary for most people and just bogs down the system (like FPU emulation, etc.). To make it simple, copy the config file for your current kernel into /usr/src/linux, and then just modify what comes up. For example, set the CPU model to yours (optimization), and then disable lots of the...um...crap.
