Thanks, kerneld was causing the slowdown. It was affecting everything. I
mean I was drawing with Gimp and noticed slowdown. When I was using gimp
there was no other programs running. I 
tried other programs and they also were some what slower. Note:
I used programs which does not use any of modules. I think part 
of the problem is I don't have fast system(486-66) so I notice 
things that effect speed more. Disabling kerneld and putting all 
the modules in /etc/modules fixed it for me.
