Hello. I am relatively new to the Linux community and am trying various distributions. So far, PCLOS 2007 seems to perform the best on my box. However, after reading about Vector 5.8 SOHO final, I decided to give it a go as it is touted to work even on older machines, which is what I have installed it on (PIII, 1000Mhz, 256 Meg Ram, 60Gb HD). Here are a couple of things I hope someone can help me with.
1. During boot sequence, at the SWAP Partition verification, in hangs for some 30-40 seconds on 'Replaying Journal'. I have not seen this before. The swap partition is 1 M in size.
2. Seamonkey-mail seems to run extraordinarily slow (to open as well as opening messages, etc.) K-Mail seems to perform similarly so it could be that I don't have something set up correctly.
3. All browsers (Konqueror, Opera, Firefox) run quite slow. (Other distributions have performed well on this machine.) So again, I probably don't have something set up correctly.
So, I guess this newbie will sign off for now. Overall, I like using Vector so hopefully I can information that will help me setup everything correctly and make a better evaluation of the distro.
Thx in advance for your help.
