Linux Mint 17.3 slow

Postby marcos81 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 6:41 pm

Hi, sorry for my english.

How do I clean my S.O.?

My mint gets slow for some seconds (20-30 sec). And it does it several time on a session.

I see that my 2 gb ram are ok, but first core (i5 intel) gets 100% of activity. I don't know why.

a. Please generate an overview of your system like this:

- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);

- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;

- copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz

(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

- Press Enter.

- Copy/paste the output in your next message.

b. Do the same with the following three commands:

Code: Select all

rfkill list all

and:

Code: Select all

inxi -Nn

and:

Code: Select all

iwconfig
