Serious Lag (in X)


So, I have no idea what's causing this, but I suspect a few things are related.

Ok, any GUI/WM/X application CRAWLS when I open it.
I tried to open Mozilla, and it took a couple of minutes...
No, it has to be better than that. It was almost instant on RH7.3 (I'm on 9 now).

It's very annoying to have that happen, but I'm thankful for consoles, because they run near instantaniously .

I think this may be related.
SSH'ing DIRECTLY to my box (i.e. both computers are behind the same router), the username prompt comes up quick, but the password input takes about 20-30 seconds to come up.

That ALSO used to be instantaneous on RH7.3.

Well as a whole RH9 is very robust, so it may be clogging up your pipes with unneeded processes as well as an overly large kernel so I'd recompile kernel. Another thing would be your WM... I use Blackbox/Fluxbox so all my processes run seemlessly cuz the WM isn't sucking up all the memory like KDE would. Just some thoughts.
