    the perennial question,have you uninstalled beagle ? check "top" in a console to see what else could be slowing it down

    Your memory will get used, it's how *nix's work.As for the snap-shot, get rid of all things beagle,guaranteed to slow the system down when you need it most

    There might be a process running called 'BEAGLE'. I have also KDE 3.5 running on a computer having 1gb ram and it's fast.

    Try using the command 'top' in a console window and changes are great that BEAGLE is running. Beagle is not a dog, but a memory hog!

    adding noatime,nodiratime to the options already in /etc/fstab will speed hdd access a bit up, would try it 1st on your /home before trying it on more vital area's
