Walking speed or crawling!
I have installed Zenwalk 3.0 and was first impressed by two things.
First, that my monitor screen size was correct, give or take a millimetre or so, on a 21 inch monitor WITHOUT any setup!
Second, that the sound worked straight away (/dev/dsp being present - it's missing on most distributions!).
First impressions don't last though.
I installed Vexira antivirus and scanned my Windows C: drive (4 Gb). It took an amazing 41 minutes 42 seconds to complete the scan.
That is REALLY SLOW. For comparison, I did the same scan using Slax Popcorn (running from harddisk, not CD) - vexira completed the task in 12 minutes 43 seconds.
Later, I compiled a few source packages and I noticed how slow the compiling speed was.
Zenwalk is nice, but surely it shouldn't be this slow!
Has any one else had these speed problems?
