fedora 10 running slow, need help to get it faster
i'm running an older pc with fedora 10, specs are
Biostar 6886-D MoBo
intel celeron 2.7g P4
2 GB ddr2 533mhz
160g ata hard drive
nvidia 6600 256mb agpx2
i also have compiz-fusion with cube desktop and emerald theme. could be a problem, however its been alittle slow from install. internet explorer opens slow, typing in a webpage lags when i input text. but no lag in terminal. youtube videos are also get a little clippy.
2 problems i *think* could be an issue is -
1) i don't have an 80 conductor ide cable.(it gives me that error at startup)
2) i did the standard install, and it seems that i don't have any swap space as a partition. I have tried linux like 8 or 9 years ago, and i thought that swap was really important to make it more efficient.
now if its the 1st one, thats an easy fix, but if its a swap issue, is there a way to add swap after install, or do you have to re-install??
any other suggestions would be appreciated.
