    strange delay durig exicution of serten program


    I have a strange problem with a Slackware 11 computer. I just compiled a new kernel (2.6.21.1) and since, some programs takes forever to execute. mpg321 needs over 3 minutes to start, and gkrellm will take ti's sweet time to.
    It must be in the kernel, but I dont know what to try and change...

    Thanks in advance!

    So it's related to the kernel configuration , how did you configure your kernel ?

    and did you try to use one of the kernels offered in the Slack DVD.

    So it's clear that it's related to your kernel configuration, but how i can help you ? in any case be sure that you compile a proper kernel for your machine have a look to :

    Processor type and features --->
    Executable file formats --->

    Chech if you have for example a 64 bit processor and this features is enabled in the kernel.

    In any case why you don't try to use the kernel 2.17 from the Slack DVD in the extra directory .
