Hi folks, I’m hoping you can help me sort this out.
The past few days my computer has been running extremely slow, logging in as any user gives me a completely unusable system.
Open firefox and wait about four minutes, maybe it will load a page. Try the same thing as root and no problems.
The same with any other application actually, but firefox is my lifeline to (hopefully) a solution.
The system is a genuine intel I3 with 16G ram, it boots from a 60GB SSD and I have two 1TB hard drives configured as a redundant raid.
The latest kernal is 3.11.10-7-desktop I just tried booting** 3.11.6-33.gf7498bf-desktop** but it was the same issue.
I think things went downhill after a recent update but I’m not sure.
Here is the contents of my /etc/fstab
emu:~ # cat /etc/fstab
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-OCZ-AGILITY3_OCZ-92936853RA210YG1-part1 / ext4 noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/md0 /home ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
Other issues, while I’m at it, could be related I don’t know.
I seem to have problems with usb data cards, not being found in my card reader - this used to work.
USB drives in general don’t seem to work.
I recently installed the nvidia driver which fixed another issue where the computer would just randomly crash.
My keyboard and mouse are wireless if that matters.
This is not a new install of 13.1 previously I had 11.x and 12.x installed. 11.x was brilliant, after that things went down hill. I use this system daily for web development. I have the box configured as an apache server for local development.
I’m not sure what other information is required to help, but please help, I’m getting desperate here.
