Fedora's desktop is running very slow
I have a box with Fedora 7 fresh-installed and runs very slow. Nearest I can tell it's the desktop that's slow as cold mollasses.
Following boot, I bring up the system monitor (about 30 seconds from click to a visible application) and find the CPU occasionally spikes at 60%, otherwise runs less than 20%. Process list shows the monitor using 20% CPU while the rest of the processes are sleeping.
RAM size is 256mb with 60% used. Swap space has 512mb available with 0% used. So I don't believe RAM or swap space are issues.
I've seen similar issues on the web but not with these symptoms, that I could see.
Could anyone help me? Please?
