Hey everyone, need some help here. I finished installing Gentoo awhile ago, with KDE. When i am in kde my comp seems to run really slow. every 5 or 10 min it lags for about a minute before it does anything. just wondering if any one can give me a hand.

System:
AMD 64 3400+
512 DDR ram

Have you looked to see if something is hogging your cpu?

from console
Code:
top

or in kde
Code:
press ctrl-esc then sort by system or user


Also check you memory usage could be hitting swap.

If KDE startup is also slow, as well as startup of individual programs, then u need to check if your programs & KDE are able to detect network settings correctly.
