Description of problem:
After I performed the recent updates to the kernel, KDE, and Xfree86,
> there is a noticable slowdown with applications in KDE. I tried a couple
> of games to see if it was one application. I tried Pysol and RTCW single
> player demo. Both were really bad. I then tried re-building the kernel
> (2.4.9-21) and the problem persists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run any application that that stresses XFree86
Actual Results: very choppy video
Can you check if DMA is still enabled for your harddisk?
hdparm -v /dev/hda
Yes DMA is enabled
Did you happen to run prelink before ?
I'm sorry. I don't know what you mean.
Ok, that's a "no" then ;)
Bero: are there any reports that KDE got slower from your side ?
I just installed the new kernel(-31) and the problem is no longer there.
