Speed questions
« on: April 25, 2016, 11:00:19 am »
Hi people. I installed Pep 6 last night and it seemed seriously slow to me.  Booting up, opening programs.  Seemed almost like there was no page file or too small of one. 
I'm on an old Dell desktop w/ 2.53g pentium 4, 2g ram.  5400rpm Seagate 2.5" drive (I'm planning to move it to a laptop later)
I haven't yet installed all the recommended updates- should I do that first?

Before starting to tweak it, have you simply tried reinstalling .. Peppermint should NOT be slow.

Otherwise, is anything using too much memory or CPU time
