Subject:   some apps very slow under Gnome
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

	This may/may not prove the superiority of BSD over the Linux 
	kernel, dunno.   Maybe you can help me figure out what I
	need to tune; or (*sob*) lighten  my load on ethos.  

	I've got three of the 4 default workspaces full of apps.
	Mostly xterms or "gnome-terminals".  I have 1G RAM, a huge 
	disk, a 2800 AMD chip, yet realplay is *very* slow to respond.
	It's time-counter changes only ever 8 seconds and when I 
	cover part or all, it takes several seconds to fill back in.

	Is this a bug in xorg or in realplay or what?  Last night I
	closed realplay and began having similar problems with one of the
	terminals.  I have run CTWM for years so am used to a lightweight
	wm.  I haven't checked to see if gnome/kde-LITE are available.
	That may be the problem.

	I am reluctant to post this to the ubuntuforums because I've 
	already asked enough idiot questions ...  (Sure, I do the
	same here, but I know you guys:-)

	I could close all my xterms and see, but it took hours to get 
	things configured just the way I  want!

	tia, you'n's,
