xfree86 performance probs....
I've noticed that my xfree performance is much slower than other distros I've tried, I'm wondering if there are any configuration options I'm not aware of.... my xf86config, kernel, rc.*'s etc are setup right-right.... performance is slower in wdn (plain X) and in KDE. I want to install KFCE4, but not until I've rectified my system performance. Also, when I try to run hdparm -d 1 -k 1 /dev/hda, it says unable to set dma mode. This is a problem since my HD transfer rate is 3.97M/sec, when it should (and usually is) 40. what would cause this. *note, I can't get hdparm to recognize the /dev/discs/etc etc format.
