Re: System becomes very slow after update to squeeze 6.0.1

Hi all,

My laptop is HP 6515b, AMD Turion 64x2 CPU, 2G memory with dual system,
Debian and windows XP. First time I installed Debian Lenny 5.0.4 amd64
on my laptop, DE is Gnome. Then upgrade to 5.0.6, then 6.0. Until 6.0 it
works very well. But recently after i updated to 6.0.1 the system
becomes very slow. I notice the process Xorg consume many CPU usage.
even i open a terminal window, it pop up very slow.today i fresh
installed my laptop,using netinst method
(debian-6.0.1a-amd64-netinst.iso).but after installed the system still
very slow, Xorg still consume many CPU. but windows XP runs normal, so i
think 6.0.1 has some problem. does anybody encountered this situation?

What's your video card? ATI, I presume? Carefully go through your Xorg.0.log and see whether there are any (EE) messages. They usually give a pretty good hint at what might have gone wrong. In all probability, you just have a rogue configuration somewhere, such as a misconfigured kernel mode setting, or a kernel module loading in the wrong order.

BTW,can i just install debian 6.0 not 6.0.1? i have 5.0.4 DVD and 6.0.1
netinst CD.

That wouldn't be too wise. You really *should* keep your Debian updated. The way to go is to file a bug report with this "6.0.1. regresssion", and the Debian maintainers will fix that for you (and for the rest of us) in no time.
