Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021235
Kernel 3.11.5-100.fc18.i686 *extremly slow with overall performance*
Last modified: 2014-02-02 10:06:23 EST
I updated to above kernel today and realized a massive slowdown of my system. Everything feels about 5 times slower than with earlier kernels.
- Booting takes longer
- Logging into GNOME-Shell takes longer
- Getting the activities in GNOME-Shell popping up takes longer
- Menu and other GUI elements require longer draw time
- Overall disk performance is slower
- The overall system feels slower and sluggish
After googl'ing I found someone else reporting something similar (maybe not) on a linux mint forum.
Anything major changed within the past few updates ? Maybe debug stuff left in ?
What is latest good kernel version ?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
From further investigations I figured out the real issue to be the tracker-store process. Closing this bug and reporting a new one as I type.
