I know this is a rather too generic thread, but bear with me so I can try to explain it... I use Slackware64-current almost exclusively both at work (95%+ of the time) and at home (all the time! Even the wife has growing tender feelings for Slackware!
At work, my box is a HP dc5850 microtower (CPU AMD Athlon Dual Core 5200B with 4GiB RAM DDR2). It's a pretty decent work machine. At home, I built from parts an AMD Phenon II X4 965 with 8 GiB RAM DDR3 - it's an awesome machine!
In both computers I have recently installed Slackwarew64-current and have applied the multilib packages from AlienBob (great work, btw!).
I'm a Java developer and have created a directoy under /opt for all the software I need for work (JDK, Apache Ant, Apache Tomcat, Apache Maven, etc). All settings are exported in /etc/profile, which is posted here
But, occasionally, I feel the whole system (on either machine) to respond very slowly, like there's some sort of process eating up all resources. Considering what I have "under the hood", that's quite annoying.
I use stock KDE and kernel, plus a here-and-there tweak I got from this
Dugan Chen's excelent post, mostly font-related.
How can I help you helping me?
Thanks in advance,
