    Lignux, eh? That's a new one for me. Also.. umm.. your OpenOffice tickles you? BAD OpenOffice, no treat for you. I'm confused.

    Why is that? Is my ****** 750Mhz AMD Duron machine just too weak for it or it's because i use MDK Community instead of Official?

    Thanks

    OpenOffice generally takes me a while to load up, even on a fast system, but then.. what is "long" for you? How much RAM do you have? Any number of things could be contributing to the slow startup time.

    Yeah.. Lignux is a compromise between using the term Linux and GNU/Linux (rightfully propagated by RMS) and i don't know why, it just came to me to write it like that in that post.

    Lignux is pronounced the same as linux but attributes the GNU without which there would no be linux as we know it.

    Well, it takes more than a minute definitely.. it's long and it slows the whole system, especially when i have almost 10 tabs opened in Firefox or any other program.
    I have 160+32 MB RAM (32 for onboard graphic chip), so it counts 160MB..

    I guess i couldn't do much there, i gotta get a new comp anyway.., and a newest OFFICIAL MDK

    Thanks

    As I've recently learned, you can seriously increase your disks access time using hdparm:

    Wow.. thank you.. i just looked at it and tried it in konsole and it actually does increases the timing buffer-cache response time. However, the timing biffer disk is the same if not lower than originally, now, generally looking it overall seems better..

    Here's what i got with it:

    Code:
     Timing buffer-cache reads:   424 MB in  2.01 seconds = 211.19 MB/sec
     Timing buffered disk reads:   64 MB in  3.05 seconds =  20.98 MB/sec
    Anyway, i'll play with that and then check everything and make it load like that. It might help bring the performance a bit up.

    Thanks
    Daniel
