I'm running Slackware -current in a Compaq Presario 2140LA (AMD Athlon XP Mobiles 2500+, 256 MB RAM) and I've seen same pause sometimes when editing files or typing commands, looks like it happends when hard disk is idle and system access it. Desktop system works fine.
Kernel 2.4.25 with ACPI, cpufreq and laptop mode activated.
In this case it may be a fscked BIOS/ACPI
implementation :) ... I've had massive problems
with an EVO 800N until I flashed the BIOS with
a newer release. Box would overheat, switch
itself off, all kinds of dumb behaviour.
My Thinkpad on the other hand is just dandy
with 2.4.25 and ACPI.
You know, I get that all the time when I use file-roller... Ussually does it with large archives... Not sure why... I get no other slow downs with anything so I generally tend to blame it on nautilus's file-roller.... I've optimized thru hdparm and like I say, never happens with anything else so....Food for thought... Now that I think of it, That really doesn't happen to me anymore... Used to all the time. Well, o.k... This is turning out to be a pointless post... I know what your talking about tho!
