sluggish Mandrake 10
Im having some problems with Mandrake 10 installation and running the system.
I work on 2 Pc's. One at home,and one at varsity. Im having trouble with the one at home.
PC at varsity : I installed Mandrake 10 in 15 Minutes, with NO hiccups. It runs like a beast. Fast and doesnt hang.. Its an Intel 2.4 Ghz, 512 RAM, GeForce2 64 MB, creative sound. 52X cd-rom.
PC at home : With the same install, it takes 1 HOUR!! Somtimes it hangs during the installation!! My HDD light stays on, and the mouse pointer cannot move, i assume that means something is wrong.. Im runnning an AMD 2600+, 640 RAM, Geforce4 128 MB, nForce sound, 52X cd-rom. When i managed to install it. When i boot up, it also hangs on occasion when i log in, and when i load apps, like OpenOfiice. Its not like my PC doesnt have the power to handle it...?
I used the same CD's to install the 2 machines, so it cannot be the Cd's.
Both machines are running WinXP also.
They are installed to the same specs, but the one is more stable, why?
Please help, this is very frustrating!!
