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.

Can you check if DMA is still enabled for your harddisk?

hdparm -v /dev/hda
Comment 2 Randy Arnold 2002-01-29 18:49:54 EST
Yes DMA is enabled
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 13:00:29 EST
Did you happen to run prelink before ?
Comment 4 Randy Arnold 2002-02-11 13:15:21 EST
I'm sorry. I don't know what you mean.
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2002-02-11 13:17:51 EST
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.
