Hi to everyone in this forum! I am suffering a problem in nearly every desktop environment: Gnome Kde4 Xfce4 Problem is that they respond very slowly to all mouse and key press. Also menu and task switching is painfully slow. Some time they just hang without any error. Also same with switching console. I have installed everything (including nvidia driver from ports) according to Handbook. I am attaching following: x log rc.conf kldstat dmesg.boot My system specifications: Specification: FreeBSD RELEASE 8 i386 (no modification in kernel, Generic one) Dell Studio XPS 1340 IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ 2 Duo P8700 (3MB cache/2.53GHz/1066Mhz FSB) Operating System Genuine WindowsÂ® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English Specifications - Operating System Operating System Genuine WindowsÂ® Vista Home Premium, 64bit, English Specifications - Operating System LCD Panel Edge-to-Edge 13.3" HD WXGA LCD with 2.0 Megapixel Camera Specifications - LCD Panel Internal Optical Drive 8X Slot Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) Specifications - Internal Optical Drive MEMORY 4GB4 Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM3 at 1067MHz (2 Dimms) Specifications - MEMORY Hard Drive 320GB5 7200 RPM6 SATA Hard Drive Specifications - Hard Drive Video Card NVIDIAÂ® GeForceÂ® 9500M - 256MB Specifications - Video Card SOUND CARD High Definition Audio 2.0 Specifications - SOUND CARD Wireless Networking Cards Dell Wireless 1520 802.11n Half Mini-Card Specifications - Wireless Networking Cards Background: This is my second stint with FreeBSD. Tried it once before but had some trouble with CD/DVD drive and other problem. Although couldn't solve it but found the reason : Perhaps my CD drive is on slave whereas FreeBSD needs it on Master (got the idea by runnig FreeBSD on virtual machine. Worked on Linux(SlackWare 13 + Xfce4) meanwhile and everything worked pretty well and fast. However I had some strange inclination toward FreeBSD from begining (mainly due to its design and nice documentation) so I am here again. Please help me in continuing my stay with this great OS.
