Mandrake 10.1 running very slow


I had mdk10.1 up and runnig just fine but for some reason it started runnig very slow.

Formatted and reinstalled it but the problem remains.

Each time an applications is started it takes ages to initialize, but afterwards it works fine. However it worked quite fast in the past.

My machine:
P4 2.66Mhz
1Gb RAM
120Gb HDD
SB Live! 5.1
FX 5200 128Mb AGP card

Googled for some time and found something related to AGP card but can't figure out what?

The only thing i changed since last install was DISABLE PnP OS on the BIOS for the eth0 and sound card to work.

Do you think it has something to do with BIOS setup?

Help needed.

Try starting an application by using your konsole, you may see some output that could help solve the problem. If any errors show and you don't understand them just post a copy of the error to this forum.

PNP may exacerbate things... but first the obvious...

Did you edit /etc/sysconfig/harddisks and uncomment the indicated lines?

Did you remove ACPI=HT from /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo again?

Have you debugged your DNS resolver?

I've posted detailed instructions on how to do this on other threads.

Please search as I don't care to retype all of the directions.

Tried running apps in konsole but it just the same.

As for:
Did you edit /etc/sysconfig/harddisks and uncomment the indicated lines? NO

Did you remove ACPI=HT from /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo again? NO

Have you debugged your DNS resolver? NO

Don't even know how to do that.

One thing I found out though is that if I turn off eth0 connection, everything work's just fine (normal speed initializing apps) But if I turn eth0 ON again, everything back to slow motion.

Still noticed that it takes ages to resolve when connecting to a site.

Don't know what to do!?

eh, you need to do all of this.

Most of this has been repeatedly covered in many threads.

Take a few searches and come back here when you run into a brick wall....

OK
As for:
Did you edit /etc/sysconfig/harddisks and uncomment the indicated lines? DONE

Did you remove ACPI=HT from /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo again? NO SUCH LINE

Have you debugged your DNS resolver?
Still can't find how to do that and what to do exactly!

Searched around and found something i tried:
edited modprobe.conf and added:
alias ipv6 off
alias net-pf-10 off

Didn't solve the problem but it's somewhat faster...

Still don't understand why shutting down internet connection makes apps initialize faster.

I recently am having the same problem as you describe. Do you use Roadrunner? I'm thinking maybe the changed something. Or one of the packages I installed off of MandrakeUpdate did something.

unplugging my modems power for a couple minutes then turning on my computer did it for me. I guess my modem had to be reset and synchronized with my ethernet card.
