i`ve just installed slackware9.0 on a laptop with a intel celeron 1.1ghz processor. i have 384 megs of ram.
whenever i start compiling, or run large programs the processor goes up to 100% load, and whatever other programs i run slows down (logic isn`t it??)
my question is: can i in some way do something to optimize the processor usage? any howto`s or other articles on the subject?
OR is this just a hopless question?
and just one more... someone recomend a good mailreader? i`m using enlightenment.
