Thread: slackwware 12.1 globally slow

  1. slackwware 12.1 globally slow

    In the new slackware many things have changed, especially at root level. I
    find that everything is a lot slower than before. It seems that the OS is
    loading a lot less data into RAMs, but the number of disk accesses has
    increased.
    for example if I'm using right now Pan and want immediately to check my
    emails,then I click on the Kmail window pad in the panel (kmail starts at
    X window start) but the OS loads some data from HD and then Kmail appears
    slowly in an ugly way. nothing looks nifty. At the beginning i though
    thath it was a problem or the video driver, but in fact that's the whole
    system issue.

    Do you have a lot of free memory? That would definitely be odd.

    Check the output of free and top.

    -Beej, still on 12.0*.

    * 12.1 DVD finally arrived and is sitting on my desk. Just need a
    couple free hours.

    Before I ducked off for a 4 day weekend we completed upgrading a number
    of servers from 12.0 to 12.1, including our mail server farm doing 3-4
    million messages each box per day, and we have not seen any degredation,
    but not using 12.1 on desktop as yet, it's prolly KDE (couldnt resist
    that hehe)

    Perhaps you have been bitten by the same bug that I found with 12.1:

    http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Proble...stem_hard_disk

    Have a look and see if your drives have suddenly become hda instead of
    sda.

    Of course this link is taken from the Changes and Hints for 12.1:

    If you notice extremely long wait times when formatting partitions in the
    installer, and you're installing on a Thinkpad that has a SATA drive,
    it's possible that the wrong driver is being used, which disables DMA
    on the drive (and could happen on other machines). A bit more detail
    about it is here:
    http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Proble...stem_hard_disk
    Try passing "hda=noprobe" to the kernel when booting the installer,
    and it should use the correct libata driver.

    and seems to be quite a common problem.

    I don't think that's the problem.
    it seems the new slackware wants to load a lot less in ram.
    every program is displayed slow enough to make users see all steps of
    loading: display first the main menu, then the main window, then the
    toolbars... (in Pan, Konqueror, Kmail.....)
    before, It was so fast that i couldn't notice of anythig like that.

  10. Re: slackwware 12.1 globally slow

    I'm having trouble with slackware 12.1 in my notebook hp compaq 6715s.
    With 12.0 it worked fine but now with 12.1 everything seems so slow
    even booting.

    I tried changing the hda sda stuff but it didn't change anything at
    all for me.

    Until now nobody found a solution?

    Lol, I really want to upgrade. My workstation computer doesn't seems
    to have this issue at all.

    Is DMA on? Suspect you have already checked.

    Wished this was the problem, but in Hp 6715s you can't check DMA or
    SATA for hard drive in BIOS setup.

    Looks fine to me, so does the dmesg -- the box is running the HDD as fast
    as it can.

    The trick now is to be sure you have the right kernel driver for the
    disk controller. A bit difficult to guide you if you never done a
    custom kernel

    Could you send an '/sbin/lspci -v'? I find it difficult to believe
    a laptop has an Adaptec rocketraid in SATA mode (from dmesg) installed?
