Debian Buster install problem in Dell R610.


Hello,

I am new on linux, Tried to install Debian 10 on Dell R 610 server with Raid 5 configuration. I will really appreciate any help on this sluggish desktop experience..

-Installer package [firmware-10.4.0-amd64-netinst]
- GNOME desktop installed
-Intel Xeon 5600 Series Processors
-Matrox Video Driver
-

#1 After the installation completed , when i typed any letters its too slow, even in typing the password some letters coming twice
#2 the mouse is moving too slow..
#3 Tried installed LXDE, everything is normal..

How could i fix the GNOME issue ..
Any driver or any thing need to be done..




Please let me know if you need any more info to understand the issue ..

Thank you

Maybe simply because you're not generally supposed to run X on a server board GPU but rather using VNC or other implementation for virtual displays?

Thanks for the reply,

So for standard installation procedure we just do not install any X on server?

Yeah, why would you need GUI on a linux server? And in general gnome and other heavy WMs aren't very fast even on desktop platforms compared to well-known minimal WMs like lxde and xfce. If you absolutely need GUI on a console try using them or even better something lighter like openbox, fluxbox, etc... Even then it's better to run it via x11vnc.
I mean, servers are servers, they're noisy and they live in racks in server rooms.
