Slower linux after upgrading to slack10


Since I upgraded my Slack9.1 into Slack10.0 my Linux is got slower!!

Is this already know problem? Looks like KDE3.2 is the evil part in this problem.
I will show you a part of my `top`:

As you see, that X is always high!!
And don't think that's cause of konqueror, if I close it the X is still high doesn't matter what I start

This is some system information
Hostname: AliTriX
OS: Linux 2.6.7/i686
CPU: Pentium III (Katmai), 501.423MHz
Processes: 101
Uptime: 2 Days, 2 Hours, 28 Minutes
Load Average: 2.43
Memory Usage: 152.21mb/191.86mb (79.33%)
Disk Usage: 196.64gb/226.12gb (86.96%)


Hope you people can help me

And btw, all those k* apps, which of them I just can close without having problems??
I never use KDE, only gdm to login and go to fluxbox

the k in those apps proble means kernel not kde. Also, you might wanna add an extra 128 MB of RAM or try a kernel patchset against the vanilla sources from kernel.org to improve proformance. I maintain a patchset which is a combo of security features, bug fixs/stablity fixs and proformance patchs. Although it only just got started its been very stable on my slack 10 box and i'm working on a second release intented to reduce latency in the kernel. Also, X being on top shoulden't be that much of a prob.

btw, for my patchset vist http://www.dcaf-security.org/skpatch.php

~predatorfreak

Edit: almost forgot, all of those k progs look very system depend (as in the system would screw up without them).
