Mandrake 9.1 Issue


Hi all I have just installed Mandrake 9.1 , and it installed without any problems, and it looks good, but when it comes to execute programs it is mega slow, and in many cases the program does not load at all. Would this be a memory issue in MD 9.1 ?. I re-installed back to MD 9.0 and that works 100% it loads the programs at light speed, I re-installed MD 9.1 again and the same result, I noticed that it uses about 300MB of memory even with no programs are loaded.

My Configuration:

Celeron P4 1.7 GHZ
512 MB DDR Ram
Nivida G-Force 2 MX400 - 64MB Display card
IBM 40GB Hard disk ( running only Linux in three partitions ) hda1
Mator 40GB with one linux partition hda8

It should be very fast on your machine. Look at the list of running services (in the Control Center) and remove all you don't need. If unsure please post your results of top and ps aux. It'll allow someone to tell you which of them you can safely remove.

Hi Thanks, but I have already tried this , and stoped many running services, still the same problem. It can take more than 1 min to load OpenOffice, that is if it loads at all, many times it just does not load, that same with Mozilla, but Grimp loads at light speed everytime..
Would it be a memory issue ?

In 9.0 everything works correctly, so it doesn't look like memory issue (OK, it is, a kind of, because somthing is taking much memory and processor power). top result would tell much.

'top' is a comand. Open a terminal, type 'top' and press Enter. Copy the result (it is upgraded frequently) and paste it to this thread.
