Any one using Fedora 8 and is finding it slow?
I am using this since last 2 weeks and when I am using eclipse (
version) i find my machine very slow. I am not able to figure it out if it is due to X11 or Eclipse ?
Can any one suggest me how to look for the problem? First I want to check if my X11 is slow or there is problem with eclipse.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated !

Try giving eclipse more memory. You can do this by modifying default values in eclipse.ini file.

If you find your system slow, verify with following
executing the following in $ prompt
ps auxwww | head
Find the top cpu consuming process and identify and kill the processes which are not requried
From the output verify the idle time of the cpu
some thing like 89.6%id, 0.0wa
more ideal time means no issues
Verify the swap space
Finally try setting up the command line parameter for eclipse
-vmargs -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m -Xms512m -Xmx1024m
that suits your system/memory
Hope this helps
Don't get me started about those stupid
