Re: Multi-tasking



Hi,

have you tried to compile yourself a kernel. I think that the debian packages 
of kernels have a default behavior of server. From the 2.6 kernels, there's 
an option in the multitask about preemptive or server. A preemptive kernel 
has a better "feeling" for the desktop user than the server.

Regards,

Leo
