Hi,

I've just finished installing Gentoo (no desktop installed yet though) but from the command line, output to the screen seems a little slow. Anyone know what I need to check and change?

To give you an idea, if I run 'time cat /var/log/messages, the output is:
Code:

real      1m14.455s
user      0m0.10s
sys       1m14.300s


I know /var/log/messages can take a while anyway but even 'ifconfig -a' is:
Code:

real        0m1.123s
users       0m0.000s
sys         0m1.110s


Thanks in advance!

Bash is not involved in printing the output of commands you run. Your problem lies with the terminal itself. Since you say you have no desktop installed, I assume you mean that you have not installed X and are still using the Linux console interface. Are you running in 80x25 or a high resolution text mode? What graphics card and drivers are you using?
