upgrade to 10.2 -> system getting slower
I have upgraded to 10.2 yesterday, keeping my old kernel 18.104.22.168. The only major change I've done is using freetype-2.1.10-i486-1arf.tgz from linuxpackages.net, in order to use a byte-code interpreter enabled version of freetype.
I have noticed that KDE starts up slower, but I am more concerned by heavy CPU usage by both firefox and X. Simply scrolling a web page in Firefox makes the CPU usage go up to 25%-35%, and opening a new web page in Firefox uses like 50% CPU for Firefox itself.
On Slackware 10.1 I also used Firefox (from linuxpackages, again) and my impression is that it responded much quicker.
Does anybody else have this impression?
