Sorry. lol Ok here goes...
I have an AMD 2600 that runs at 2.08 Ghz, 512 Megs of Ram, all on a desktop, and swap is enabled. No I didn't run top, however I have the system monitor gui on my toolbar, so if the CPU was up I would've noticed it. everything on the system seems to be running normal. I also have updated every package I have on my system through RPM and the Fedora Mirrors. I am running GNOME 22.214.171.124-1 on my desktop.
I have also checked the system , x.org, and security logs and nothing indicates anything wrong.
Hope these details help.
