how to prevent Slackware64-current with KDE4.10.1 freeze on eclipse (java) usage?
I use Slackware64-current with KDE4.10.1 on my work laptop (i5-2520M CPU and 4GiB RAM) for Java development on eclipse IDE.
I know Java is not lightweight and eclipse itself is quite a powerhog as well. But, there a big difference from occasional slowness to complete halt for a few seconds. Whenever this freeze happens, Java process reported on top spikes up to 90%+.
My environment is configured and operational (jdk is up-to-date, java variables are exported on /etc/profile, etc.) but just painstakingly slow. And it gets annoying - specially when the boss is right next to you and he uses Windows and he jokes 'shouldn't this be faster / smoother?'.
What do I need to show of my system so I can get better help on this issue?
Thanks in advance,
