ok, sorry, for not being specific. The problem is when I am working, sometimes my Slackware freezes, and really I don't know why. Sometimes some applications does my machine works slowly, applications like just openning mozilla, open a konsola.

If you use your computer for desktop, I suggest upgrade kernel to 2.6
as I had X freeze too but many time ago when I used 2.4 kernels

Now, note that I don't mean it is because that you run a 2.4 kernel that
your system freeze There could be many reason

cpu running too hot, bad memory, video driver problem...
(did you try another window manager ?)

I've used all the time KDE, but lately almost everything works slowly.

Maybe take a look at your log files, especially in syslog, see dmesg too
if there is any weird error.
Do you fill your drive ? (run df -h to see)

"Slowness" is usually caused by the reasons allready stated in this thread, and running out of ram. Youll start using swap space, and that realy slows things.. For eg, yesterday I got a distinct feeling of being back at the days of 64M ram on a win98 machine, eventhough Im using linux with 1024.. The problem in my case was a malfunctioning javascript that caused firefox to eat 800M of ram, and 800 more of swap..

So, the point of this story was,
Code:
free -m
will tell you your memory status in full, swap and all.. Its worth a look if things seem to be on the slow side..
