Sistem Very Slow !

Postby Pito on Thu Feb 25, 2010 1:22 pm

Hello everyone,

I installed mint 8 Kde Ce x64 and then updated with KDE 4.4.
Everything went well for about a week.
Now the system is very slow. I see that the 2 CPUs (Athlon 64 6400 +) are always committed to approximately 50% even when the system does nothing.
If I look in System Monitor I cannot find jobs that use so much of the cpu.

Any ideas?

Thanks
I hope not to die under Berlusconi. Not for my age because I could leave tomorrow, but for the fact of having a little of hope about the life and humanity. I would say that Berlusconi is a man who don't gives hope.

A bit more context data is needed: system hardware, software
--how much RAM, what is active when you notice these slowdowns, what are you doing, are you busy streaming flash video for example (youtube )

I installed mint 8 Kde Ce x64 and then updated with KDE 4.4
Was the update made via the Mint system repositories as an update, or in some other manner.

Do you mean you don't notice any process that is taking so much of the application space (CPU utilization/memory )

I don't know if this is available in the KDE environment /OS release...
--In a terminal, check
  • inxi -F
    --OS detected device list
  • lspci
    --another way of looking at the device list
    free -m
    --amount of free RAM/buffers available in MB

Monitor system resources..

Watch for system daemons that are always running. On your system, which are they?, and can you find a way to optimize them (possibly not running some daemons, if they are really not needed by your operating style But just be careful!

Are you running any disk indexing software
--I personally find no benefit with these types of applications and always De-index (do not use) hard drive indexing, which only helps for the occasional hard drive (system search ) for some long forgotten data

Ok,

I found the solution:
The dropbox application! If I kill it all is ok!
