Full Version: Suse 9 Slowing Down
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
About 3 months ago, I installed SuSE 9.0 on my notebook PC. It was, as you'd expect for a brand new 3GHz machine, pretty fast. In the past few weeks, it has become unbelieveably slow - most noticeably the OpenGL screensaver, which used to run very smoothly, now does about 1-3 fps. A similar speed problem is happening on the desktop PC, also with SuSE 9. I have never had this problem before, haven't installed anything or changed any settings recently, and really don't know what is going on.

How can i figure out what process(es) are causing the poor performance, and stop this from happening??


have you done any updates with the SuSE watcher? If not that may help

I finally plugged the computer into the 'net yesterday and downloaded the latest updates. That certainly *seems* to have solved the speed problems, although just typing this with nothing else running, the system fan is running at full throttle, which is unusual.

OK, it's slowing down now. Maybe I was typing too fast wink.gif Will have to see what happens in the next week or so.

You can use the command top in a terminal window ... or there should be a system monitor program in the menu.
