comment Ubuntu 11.10 Performance Problems
This is not a duplicate: I am NOT asking for tips to improve performance, I am trying to find out if my performance problems are unavoidable or, as I suspect, are due to some bad coniguration. All tips in the other post are extras; none of those checks if things are working as they are supposed to be working in the first place. I don't want to just improve the performance; I want to check if the bad performance is a symptom of something else that needs solving, before just trying to patch it. That other post doesn't help me at all in that.

comment Ubuntu 11.10 Performance Problems
I have "nvidia accelerated graphics drivers (version 96)" active, as it was the recommended, but also lists the same but "post release updates". I tried switching between the two but things didn't improve. You mention "version 173"; perhaps my drivers are outdated? or might it ok for the video card (I couldn't find the model, but it is a Geforce with 64 MB DDR)?

Daniel: Firefox and Xorg (Xorg goes around 5-20% all the time, while firefox is low but pikes in over 50% when switching tabs or the like)

Jorge: I would expect the system to work smoothly for at least a couple of days after fresh installation without having to make special adjustments. Perhaps I'm mistaken, but the kind of things you solve by improving performance are not the problems that appear so early; this has to be some deeper issue...
