Subject: Fedora 11 very very slow on Athlon DAM 1500+, 1.3 GHz Machine

I tried running Fedora 11, with it being only operating system installed, and it was too slow for everything.
The message boxes, applications, games, etc... everything.. took a great time to load.

It was installed on Ext4 file system. Is my computer not capable of handling that?

Right now, I run Fedora 10 and there is not any slow down issue.
Please suggest.

I have heard others say similar things about every new fedora release. Some have even suggested that Linux is fast becoming a windows-like os as far as responsiveness is concerned.

What I did for my poor old AMD laptop is I reconfigured  the kernel to
1. disable all SMP options.
2. chose "performance" in cpu frequency governor option.
3. made sure that my cpu type was checked instead of some pentium cpu.
4. made sure that I selected premptible kernel option which improves interactive process responsiveness. CONFIG_PREEMPT=y

The result was a very noticeable improvement in interactive response.

Good luck.
