Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80663
slow kb response time
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:22 EDT
Description of problem:
slow kb response time. In 2.4.18 the kb response time under load (swapping /
loading huge binaries like mozilla) was much better then with 2.4.20-2.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. Stress sytem
2. type somthing on console
3. wait for chars to appear.
just to make sure; you're not complaining about keyboard repeat rate but about
interactive response ?
Yes thats what I'm complaining about it esp bad when doing
rpm -ivh <some-not-small-rpm> and then just continuing with work as asual.
This is on a 128 meg RAM machine with gnome without nautilus but with mozilla open.
could you try the latest kernel in rawhide? It should behave a LOT better in
I've tested it and its much better indeed, I believe even better then the kernel
in 8.0. You can close this as far as I'm concerned.
