Hi Mario!=0A=0ADid you installed the right vga driver? Did you make de righ=
t xorg.conf for Xserver? Please check this.=0AAnyways, you can send your to=
p processes, but I think that the Firefox uses the more from CPU, by the wa=
y, what is your load?=0A=0A=0ALaci=0A=0A=0A=0A_____________________________=

ct: freeBSD 6.4=0A=0AHi D=E1nielisz=0A=0AI got this email of you on MAR 13,=
 and today I got the GNOME running on freeBSD 6.4.=0AI also installed KDE4 =
but haven't used it yet.=0A=0AMy main question this time is about the whole=
 freeBSD.  As a matter of fact it is running=0Athe CPU above 50% as I start=
 GNOME with no more application involved. I am right now=0Aemailing this fr=
om GMAIL/google using firefox loaded on GNOME  2.22.3 and the CPU is =0A75%=
 busy. So it is kind of slow and lagging. I am using this ASUS machine:=0A=
=0AAMD Athlon(TM) XP 2000+=0AMemory  1 GB=0A=0AWhich when I use windows XP =
as OS, does the same with CPU involved just 6%. I am sure=0AfreeBSD should =
do this much faster than Windows XP, but I have no idea how to detect what=
=0Ais wrong. I can also send the list of processes running on this 6.4 whic=
h i guess most of them are=0Anormal. and the only application open is firef=
ox connected to GMAIL . Any idea what should I check?=0A=0AI like to have a=
 UNIX like OP. System to work on my JAVA programs. That I was doing with WI=
N-XP=0Aso far. And I have WIN2003 also on another ASUS Core i7 machine. I w=
ant to know if the performance =0Aof freeBSD is very hardware related, then=
 what type of motherboard / chip / CPU ..etc is recommended?  =0AI used to =
work with UNIX on SUN machines while at university, and I expect freeBSD to=
 function almost =0Athe same, and even better these days concerning the tim=
e and new technologies but I am missing some =0Ainfo to get it done. =0ATha=
