It made a big difference on this machine, Andy!  Chromium was getting so slow, and unresponsive - and constantly freezing - that I was at wit's end.

I was ready to send it to computer heaven, when all of a sudden it sprang back to life.  And, really, all I had done was install the 4.2rc kernel.

It only takes 5 minutes to find out.  :D

I haven't run across any problems, knock on wood, on ANY of the machines I've run it on.  This machine is almost 10 years old..

Yup, that's basically it - just a little long-winded and contrived.  ;D

Linux 4.2rc4 just hit the repo, so I'll download and install it...

LINK: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.2-rc4-unstable/

I want the 32-bit low-latency version, so I'll download the low-latency headers & image, plus the all.deb (3 files total).



I'll store these 3 files in a folder, all by themselves, then open a terminal in that folder, and run the following  command:

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

And, REBOOT, when it's done.

That's about it...

It's having none of it on my machines.  Both the 32-bit and 64-bit.  The only thing that works is the wallpaper.  Everything else is torn and shredded to hell and back.  It makes both machines totally unusable  :'(.

I've just tried installing, kernel 4.2 rc4 low latency again to my 64-bit Fujitsu Siemens AMILO li3710.  Bingo, it worked this time.  VinDSL is right, everything now screams at warp speed.  This machine could never be considered slow either.  Honestly, now it's like having a new computer.  So far so good, there appears to be no weirdness or unexpected behaviour  ;).

Hi everyone,


I'm running Peppermint Six using the 4.2.0-rc3 32-bit kernel on my 7 year old Dell inspiron 530 with an Intel Core2 Duo CPU E7200 and 2 GB RAM. Everything works very well. I think I'll be moving to the rc4 low-latency kernel today (after reading AndyInMokum's post).


EDIT: now running 32-bit kernel 4.2.0-rc4-low-latency without any problems.


Regards,


-- Slim

What does Noah Webster know?  He can't even spell colour, harbour or even centre correctly :D!!
Uh I think his name was Meriam not Noah...   :)
By the way you spelled all the above words wrong should be color harbor and center....    You should get a copy of a dictionary my friend...  Tee hee..   :P

Hi rjm65,

Maybe you should take a look at the first paragraph of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah_Webster. :P

Then from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merriam-Webster   I found this:


Quote
Merriam-Webster, Incorporated, is an American company that publishes reference books, especially dictionaries.


In 1831, George and Charles Merriam founded the company as G & C Merriam Co. in Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1843, after Noah Webster died, the company bought the rights to An American Dictionary of the English Language from Webster's estate. All Merriam-Webster dictionaries trace their lineage to this source.

Regards,

-- Slim

Which kernel are you currently running, and are you running any proprietary graphics drivers ?

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C display
