MDK 10.1 RC1 (x86_64) sluggish

I am sure I'm not the only one but the Mandrake 10.1 RC1 (x86_64) Community release seems very very sluggish in comparison to the Mandrake 10.1 Devel release.

Just before installing the MDK 10.1 RC1 version I was running the (Devel) version for a couple of weeks and the whole machine ran like lightning, it booted up fast, I was able to log in (via KDE) quickly and applications started swiftly. Now with the RC1 release booting up is about the same, logging in takes ages and starting up applications (e.g. Konsole) takes ages as well.

Does anyone have any idea as to the possible cause?

I am beginning to think it maybe KDE. The system I am running is an AMD64 512MB machine with 120GB of disk.

The fact that I have see Mandrake 10.1 (Devel) run blindingly quick with the exact same configuration leaves me with a little disappointment with the latest release.

Sorry everyone, I meant to put this post on the Mandrake Distribution forum.

But if you have any ideas

Cracked it, I'm afraid it was me incorrectly entering the Host Name and DNS Server during installation, what a dweeb.

Never mind it is fixed now !
