Description Hans de Goede 2002-12-29 16:40:41 UTC
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):

How reproducible:
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 ?

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2003-01-07 08:08:26 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-01-13 15:28:56 UTC
could you try the latest kernel in rawhide? It should behave a LOT better in
this regard.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2003-01-15 20:34:22 UTC
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.
