Since running the live update in Fedora and installing all the patches the system has become extremely slow to the extent that you can’t use it.
The Fedora machine is only used for samba file sharing for the firms’ documents etc. I’m also using Webmin to navigate around it quicker.
I don’t know if this is related, but ive been into the GRUB boot loader via webmin and there are 12 boot options, and the one selected is Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.14_FC3smp). Are the other 11 boot options slowing it down? What does the ‘smp’ stand for at the end of the selected boot? As there is also a Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.14_FC3) boot option listed.
I would be grateful if you could help me troubleshoot the reason why it is suddenly running very slow.
