slow desktop - slackware & fluxbox
Ive got a problem with my Slackware 12.1 & Fluxbox desktop.
its strangely slow, only by a split second, but its noticeable. when I open Gftp or Xpdf or some other program, the window gets drawn as a block of grey, then it will fill in the fonts. I dont think its a Slack/Fluxbox problem, because Ive used the same versions for a while with good results on another computer (P4).
I should tell you, my current computer is an Intel Celeron 2.6, with 768m of RAM.
I tried moving/reseating the RAM to no effect, and Ive run 'memtest86' and everything seems ok no errors. Ive also tried Slackwares default kernel 'hugesmp.s', and the 'huge.s' kernel.
is there a program that I can test the Celeron processor with? do Celerons need special kernel options?
any other suggestions on what I can try next?
