The prbolem is
I run KDE with keramik as style, my problem is that the system is very
sluggish. It takes ~ 4-5 secs for a file manager to open. irrespictive of the
GUI or window manager.. the same is true for GNOME also.
If i am playing mp3 from hdd or cdrom even if i click on the window or switch between
windows. the music pauses for a second !
My ram seems to get filled up @ blocks of 8k size as time passes by..and
eventualy i only have some 4mb of free ram left !
the processes i run are postgresql,httpd. occasinaly i use tomcat too.
even if none of these are running i get the same problem.
I am running kernel version 2.4.18-14 on a redhat 8 ..
any suggestions to make it work smooth ?
When I was using a PCTel internal modem with MS Windows before I totally foreswore that product and corporation--I found that the modem could severely tie up my whole computer. When I switched to a hardware modem, no more hangups whatsoever. It's well worth the few extra dollars to have a hardware modem.
Hey guys thers a workaround..dunno whether it will work for all. The villain is imlib .. try installing the imlib version that came with redhat 7.1 & fn lib also ..then at gnome works very fast .. nautilus takes only a fraction of a second to open..with apache & tomcat all running in the bkgnd.. wonder if theers a workaround for kde too ..
btw i tried fluxbox.. how do i get the icons on my Desktop ? does it have filemanager of its own ?
yet another cool one is enlightenment ..it works very fast.. when coupled with gmc ..
