cant really see any of those logs being "huge" but i'll give it a try. is it safe to just delete all of the ".log" files in there?
and is there a way to tell which wireless cared I have without booting into windows, from Mint? I cant remember what card it is
5 minute update:
downed and ran htop, it shows a disturbing line in the number one slot for cpu%:/usr/X11R6/bin/x :0 auth /var/lib/gdm/:0 Xauth -nolisten tcp vt7
<----usage varied but was very high, eventually would settle down...then spike again. nothing else running over 3%, most running @ 0%.
also have now discovered to primary problem makers:
1)when running system monitor, tabbing to resoures immeadiately spikes cpu and vastly slows computer, tabbing back to processes speeds it back up (still not showing a major culprit)
2)Firefox now running slow as molassas; while typing this it what I type has a huge delay of actually arriving on screen.
still very stumped here, it was running perfect absolutely perfect and then *blam* this. help!!!
