I have just installed ubuntu 12.10 and performed all updates, everything seems to work as expected except the fact that it is SLOW:
- Hard drive seeks each time I open something (even if i just opened it)
- If I Launch two applications "Oh mon dieu catastrophe !!" the system freezes a second each time I do something...
- I've just tried to unmount my iphone and after freezing the system a few seconds, a compiz error poped up.
2GB of ram Core 2 Duo T7300 @ 2ghz x 2
System monitor reports 485 of used ram and a CPU history around 10% with peeks at 50%.
This is a clean install, my Winows 7 install with an antivirus and firewall with all it's bloat since the last years works like a charm and is extremely reactive...
Thanks for helping me out :-/
