Gnome slow after 10 minutes

Postby andyvr4 on Thu Nov 08, 2007 11:33 am

Hi,

I've just recently started noticing that after I've had gnome up for about 10 minutes all applications start to run far slower than when it first loads. Even just minimizing and maximizing programs will look really jumpy. I thought maybe this was due to some update that I installed so I restored the partition from an image that I had from about a week ago when everything was working fine and I'm still noticing this problem.

If I restart the xserver (ctrl-alt-backspace) everything will come back up and run great for about another 10 minutes and then it will start doing this again. I was wondering if anybody has run into this problem before and knows of a solution or something that I could try.

Thanks,
Andy

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This is not familiar (well...)
Which version do you have?
In Cassandra and earlier this can be Beagle. If you have it just remove it.

I'm running Celena which was upgraded from a fresh install of Cassandra.

Beagle has been removed, however I can't remember if I removed it or if it was removed by the default installation.

Thanks
Any other ideas,
Andy

No ideas
Look in the System Monitor
or the nice command top in a terminal
and see if there's something that is using a lot of resources
In my system it's Firefox that eats most memory

I've noticed that as well with my system, but it's always been that way nothings changed. Firefox will regularly use 100-150 mB of memory, but that shouldn't be stressing things to much since the system has 1 gB of memory and I've never seen more than 300-350 mB committed when I've been having trouble.

So far this afternoon after posting this it's been doing a lot better so I don't know what's going on. I'm wondering if maybe it was just some program running some sort-of check are something. I guess I'll just wait and see if the problem pops back up again later.

Thanks for the help,
Andy
