OS: FC6 latest release kernel
Issue: System slowdown/freeze under disk access/window scrolling.
. 2 x single core intel p4 2.8ghz (smp) on nforce2
. AMD 64 3700+ on nforce4 ultra using SATA II drive
(I'm not sure how to generate the equivalent of a dxdiag for Linux)
Both systems "chug" whenever even small amounts of disk access occurs; I'm running the latest stable livna nvidia drivers and glx/compiz.
I had the FC4 iso on my AMD system, when I did rm fc4*iso it took nearly 30s for the command prompt to return. Similarly whenever I'm doing anything in cod
eblocks or other GUI system which invokes disk access, the system generally stutters/freezes for the duration.
I captured my AMDs dmesg's file here
